Bahiya – Weekend Retreat for Women

Exploring the profound teaching of the Buddha to Bahiya

Friday 31st May 2024 – Monday 3rd June 2024

Led by Atulyamitra, Prajnamayi, and Saddhajaya


Friday 31st May – Monday 3rd June 2024


Bru Moytura, Corlisheen, Riverstown, Co. Sligo.

Bru Moytura is a 100-foot wide wooden retreat centre in the foothills of rural Sligo. The ‘brugh’ stems from the Irish notion of a hosting place.

The great circular hall is perfect for meditation, ritual and discussion groups. A beautiful sunlit front room to the south west is the dining zone. Unique geothermal underfloor heating system means that the meditation/yoga-mats will never be cold!

This retreat is for women+ who have a meditation practice of the Mindfulness of Breathing and Metta Bhavana meditation practices.

The retreat will be led by Atulyamitra, Prajnamayi, and Saddhajaya.

  In the seen, only the seen
  In the heard, only the heard
  In the sensed, only the sensed
  In the cognized, only the cognized

    -Bahiya Sutta

Do these lines ring true for you? How do you apply the Buddha’s last words, “with mindfulness strive on”, to your daily life?

Explore the fascinating and mysterious teachings of the Bahiya and Satipatthana Sutta through meditation, movement, discussion and ritual and awaken to the boundless nature of consciousness.

We asked previous retreat participants what the highlights were for them. They answered:

  • Meeting others on the retreat
  • The meditation
  • The food
  • The chance to reflect

All dishes are vegan, but don’t let that put you off. We’ve astounded by many omnivores on our retreats who admitted they had no idea vegan food could be so tasty and filling!

Every meal is cooked from scratch, and there is always enough for second helpings. No one ever goes hungry on our retreats.

Bru Moytura is an aproximately 2.5 hour drive from Dublin City Centre.

If you cannot drive yourself there will be an opportunity to car pool subject to availability.


We do tiered pricing, depending on the circumstances.

  • €295 waged
  • €265 low-waged
  • €195 unwaged or student
