Healing Relationships

with Rosamund Oliver
Friday 26 July, 8pm to Sunday 28 July, 1pm

The aim of this retreat is to support our own healing, self-compassion and a process of forgiveness; to enable more compassionate and authentic interactions with partners, family members and work colleagues.

Sometimes, in our relationship with others, we are left with feelings of disappointment, pain, grief, fear or hurt. These feelings can be hard to deal with and can keep coming back.
This retreat will provide the basis for a self-reflective process, away from the busyness of our daily life, giving us insights and a practical methodology to address old problems and unblock difficult communication with others.

This is a unique opportunity to directly experience how meditation and reflection can help us to reconnect with our inner sense of well-being, to transform past difficulties and to become open to more genuine relationships.

The weekend will also include experiential exercises on listening and communication.

“I feel that I have gained many of the life skills I have been searching for. Thank you”. (Sonia)


The retreat will be held in our clifftop shrine room, with floor-to-ceiling windows offering spectacular ocean views.


Delicious two course vegetarian lunches, with soup and bread in the evenings. Cooked with love at Dzogchen Beara, using homegrown and organic ingredients whenever possible. Tea and coffee.
