The teacher:


Retreat description

The Dharma, as a path for ending dukkha, could be called a way of making time, for the contraction of dukkha and intensity of time arise, and fade, together.

On this course we will explore Dharma teachings and practices that ease stress here and now and open a refreshing and freeing sense of time. Whether we are expanding the present moment to allow for much more; slowing down the rush and hurry that a busy sense of self can escalate to; or softening the pushing and pulling demands on time to embody greater sensitivity, we are not just idly playing with time but making time for life and bringing freedom teachings alive.


The course will develop through the 5 meetings, so please only sign up if you can commit to coming to all the weekly meetings.

Using Zoom

This online retreat will use the Zoom platform. For support with learning how to use Zoom, please click here to read the guidance we’ve put together on our website. Please read the first section, ‘Using Zoom’, before registering.


If you have any questions regarding the retreat, you can send an email to info@gaiahouse.co.uk.  We will respond as quickly as possible, but we have a reduced team during this time so we apologise if you have to wait longer than usual.


None of your registration fee goes to the teacher(s). Gaia House teachers rely on the generosity of students for their livelihood. There will be an opportunity to make a dana offering to your teacher(s) at the end of the event.

Well-being guidelines - please click here to read before booking

Before you book, please read these guidelines about mental well-being and silent retreats:

Meditation retreats can be very nourishing; however, as they require sustained meditation practice, they also need some stability of psychological health. If you have recently (within the past year or so) experienced significant trauma or psychiatric illness, or if you are currently experiencing acute emotional distress such as serious depression or anxiety, it may not be the best time for you to participate in a retreat. The teachers might not be able to give you the kind of individual psychological care you need at this time. A setting with more opportunities for interpersonal engagement may be more appropriate.

  • If you are currently under the care of a mental health professional, please discuss your attendance with them. You should be in a relatively stable period of mental well-being and have adequate psychological resilience.
  • If you have any questions about this, please contact Susanne using the email address, retreatmanager@gaiahouse.co.uk
