Yoga and Meditation - Weekend Retreat

A tonic for the mind and the body

Friday 6th – Sunday 8th September 2024

Led by Pavara and Atulyamitra


Friday 6th – Sunday 8th September 2024. The retreat starts at 6pm on Friday and ends around 2.30pm on Sunday.


Mucklagh House, County Wicklow.

This former country lodge is cosy, comfortable, and surrounded by woods. It’s a 90-minute drive from Dublin City. See below for a Google Map.

  • Complete beginners who want to learn to meditate and do yoga
  • Yogis and Meditators with some experience who’ve never been on retreat before
  • Anyone with an existing yoga or meditation practice who wants to go deeper in excellent conditions

The retreat will be led by Pavara and Atulyamitra, both of whom teach at the Dublin Buddhist Centre.

The retreat will be a combination of yoga sessions and meditation sessions with teaching throughout. There will be three delicious vegan meals each day and snacks available inbetween. There will be an opportunity to explore the beautiful location as well as connect with other retreatants.

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

  • Meeting others on the retreat
  • The yoga
  • 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.

The most worthwhile thing I’ve done in a long time.

If you want to get off the motorway of modern life for a while and park somewhere quiet to reflect and review the direction you are taking in your journey… A retreat with the Dublin Buddhist Centre can offer you a change of oil, new spark plugs, a cleaner windscreen, tightened suspension and quite possibly update your Sat-nav so that you may finally know where you are going.
