Movement and Meditation – Online

“A retreat online is in some ways better than going off to a separate location. You have an immediate opportunity to relate your understandings with your everyday life.” Feedback from a participant on a recent online retreat.

The feedback we’re getting shows online events aren’t just second-best alternatives but they offer distinct advantages of their own. For example it is easier to attend by connecting from home and this gives you the opportunity to directly integrate learning into everyday life. So if you’re thinking about joining us online, be prepared to be pleasantly surprised by an inspiring new experience!

Online participants comment on the close connection they feel with the teachers and with other retreatants. To maintain this special atmosphere, registration on our online retreats is limited to the same number of participants as if the retreat was happening at Dzogchen Beara, so we recommend early booking to avoid disappointment.

Weekend Retreats

“I was a bit hesitant about doing an online retreat but I can’t praise it enough. I am grateful to have had the experience. This was my first retreat and I have really enjoyed it. The retreat was well structured, the speakers were great and the opportunity to speak with participants within the chatroom was so beneficial. I also loved the views and I hope in the future I will go to Dzogchen Beara. Thanks so much to all of you who made it possible.” Feedback from a participant on a recent online retreat.

“It was lovely to be able to join this retreat although not being present in Ireland. I was surprised at how connected I felt to each and everyone of the participants and how strong the whole experience could be even if done through a screen and from my own apartment in Sweden. The technical parts worked fantastically well and it all felt very professional and well organised. I really enjoyed the variations between watching videos, having formal meditation exercises, talks, guidance and breakout groups as well as individual support. The presentation team all brought kindness, comfort and beautiful insights for me to benefit from. I left the retreat feeling inspired and joyful, ready to incorporate new habits into my daily life and having a lot to reflect upon. Thank you so much, it couldn’t have been more beautiful.” Feedback from a participant on a recent online retreat.

Digital Well-being with Jonathan Garner and Steve Cope
Bringing awareness and intention to our digital habits
Even in our leisure time we often spend our day exchanging one device for another. Research shows that on average we spend more than 4 hours a day on our phone! What impact does this have on our mind? Where does all the time go? In this retreat we will explore meditation practice through the lens of our relationship with technology, taking the time to identify how technology can amplify what is important to you while still continuing the flow with your practice throughout the day.
