Some of the comments from people who attended the 2018 Nanpantan Retreat:
“I've gone from asking what's that about, to asking what's going on? A big shift!!!”
“In short my time here has left me feeling ready to commit to my practice and hopefully edge closer to the razor's edge in my everyday life dealings, I'm so grateful.”
“What a lovely enriching week. I've learnt such a lot, about mindfulness meditation, but also some satisfying insights for myself.”
“It exceeded my expectations, Suryacitta always keeps the content simple and understandable”
“This is been a very rich experience for me. I have realised the opportunity to step off the hamster wheel of everyday life and slow down, pause, savour the beautiful grounds and meet new people and experience new teaching and meditation styles.”
“This is a beautiful place, an easy place to be even when things are not. The most important thing for me is to feel safe and safe was how I felt here.”
“I appreciate that this will be a long journey and I will come across some very difficult emotions that have been very well buried. But for once I actually feel like it is something I can do and will do. I look forward to going home and enjoying my children (in the moment) and hopefully giving them the life I never had.”
“If you want to experience and appreciate what is, I highly recommend this retreat".
