“What a blessing to be able to switch off from my busy life and spend a few days with myself getting to know me. Giving myself a gift of a pause. Thank you”
“It’s a nice start to a retreat to walk through the gates of Tushita and let go. The teachings are simple but immense. The environment is relaxing and beautiful and encouraging to help create a place to meditate.
I recommend you to “give it a go” if you are thinking about it. It’s not scary at all!”
“I found the experience to be challenging, interesting, insightful, relaxing and necessary. A perfect introduction to meditation in a beautiful space. Something every human should experience”
“The Tushita Mystery School allowed me a safe place to feel safe and comfortable and soothed, so I would wind down from everyday life and explore IAM. The instructors were kind and approachable and no question was a silly one. Being in silence can really worry some people, but give it a go, it’s an incredible experience”
“Time out over 3 days to stop and reflect. Very safe beautiful grounds and encouraging facilitators.
I have come home to myself and will take the quietness inside me home to my life.”
“If you come here simply as a relaxing get-away you will be well rewarded with beautiful scenery, sub-tropical atmosphere and amazing kaimahi who are here to help. On top of that, I cannot highly recommend more the transformative experience of becoming aware of your true self through mindfulness and meditation. Kia ora Tushita.“
“Always a lot of trepidation about attending meditation type courses or retreats.
I encourage anyone to feel the fear and do it anyway. You’ll wonder why it took you so long!!
The mind chatters so much – living in the past, problem solving for the future – and being so judgemental.
This is a great introduction to be given the tools to help us calm the mind”
“To anyone who is thinking of attending a silent meditation retreat I would say: “go for it”.
I have really enjoyed the two retreats I have attended at the Tushita Mystery School. I have found them to improve my practice and improve my life. I have left the retreats with a warm afterglow of gratitude and love”
“Thank you for creating this beautiful space where we search who we truly are and hopefully bring that with us in our everyday life.”
“Thank you to everyone who makes this retreat possible. Thank you for providing me the space to just be. Not having to cook or plan or keep an eye on the time has permitted me the space to focus solely on myself. I feel rested, nourished, rejuvenated, restored, grounded and a little more in tune with myself. In our crazy busy everyday lives, this sanctuary is an incredible and necessary space that I’m incredibly grateful I got to experience.
The food was delicious, the ground beautiful and so relaxing. My face feels like it’s melted and softened, the bodily aches and pains have reduced to barely there!”
