Finding the right retreat

Our listings include many different types and styles of meditation and this may include: Zen, Buddhist, Vipassana, transcendental, mindfulness, sensory, mantra and yoga meditation, to name but a few! Meditation describes the concentrated focus that's used to separate people from their thoughts and feelings, with the eventual aim of becoming fully aware. Much of it uses quiet passive techniques, postures and focused attention as you'll find in the many seated meditation techniques; but some is more active as seen in walking and Osho meditations, or in TaiChi or Qi Gong practice.



Many meditation techniques are rooted in ancient religious and spiritual traditions, however, while some contemporary meditation is also spiritual in nature (often taking place in ashrams, monasteries, convents and the like), much does not have any religious element and may be practiced simply to achieve mental and physical health and wellbeing.


This category lists retreats and holidays where meditating is a primary aim and will feature heavily in the retreat or holiday. However, meditation is also practiced, probably in a more limited way, in many other health and wellbeing retreats – so we recommend checking out our other health and wellbeing pages» to find these.
