Would You Like to Stop the Noise in Your Head?

Are you sick and tired of watching all of your thoughts swimming around in your head, making you crazy?

Are you sick and tired of watching all of your thoughts swimming around in your head, making you crazy?

Are you sick and tired of watching all of your thoughts swimming around in your head, making you crazy?

Would you like to find a way to meditate and silence the noise?

Would you like to unplug totally from the noise and distractions of modern day life?

Would you like to meditate in a beautiful setting where we'll be using all that the Vortex Healing Centre offers and doing our meditations inside and outdoors, sitting quietly and practicing moving meditation.

There's a reason it's called "the practice of meditation" because that's exactly what we do.

We practice becoming ever more aware.

Aware of the breath,

Aware of all that is inside.

Aware of all that is around us.

Aware of all of our 5 senses.

Aware of how much our higher self would like to show us more.

Aware of WHO we truly are.

Aware of WHAT IS.

Aware of our true nature.


We'll meet Friday night at 6 pm to talk and introduce each ourselves. We'll share a simple meal here at the Vortex Healing Centre and head to bed early to get a good start on the retreat.

Over the 3 days, you will be asked to refrain from all speaking (except directly with your guide), all telephone calls, and all internet usage.  It is OK to read and journal, take photos, enjoy the wildlife and scenery!

We will be meeting from 8 am - and finishing at 6 pm alternating 1 hour of meditation with 1 hour of free time. Lunch, coffee, tea and biscuits will be provided. You are also welcome to share the kitchen facilities at the house. Please let us know if you have specific meal requirements.

These meditations may be done sitting, standing or walking and we will be making use of the whole property both inside and outside depending on the weather.

Barbara Longue, your guide for this retreat has practiced many forms of meditation and we will be using a wide variety to deliver deep into the stillness and expansiveness of Mind, Body and Soul.
