Raja Yoga Meditation Retreats
@ Blue Mountains

Our Retreat Centre in Leura was ‘found’ in the year 2000, and everyone immediately fell in love with it. To this day, silence is the gift people feel on entering our Blue Mountains home.

Located on 132 acres of rugged bushland, the natural surroundings support an easy entry into solitude and introspection. With 2 halls, it’s possible to host 2 retreats every weekend, and a variety of retreats and programs are held. Some are particular to professionals, men, women and young adults. Some are language specific, such as Spanish, Hindi, Tamil and Punjabi. Healthcare professionals benefit from Values in Healthcare retreats, and those interested in the environment and sustainability enjoy our retreats for professionals who work in those fields.  For those who love gardens, The Meditative Gardener retreat is offered.

We also offer The Brahma Kumaris' core curriculum Raja Yoga Meditation courses and meditation sessions which are open to all.

We look forward to you coming to visit us.

The Team

We are a team of residential and non-residential volunteers. Together, we create and maintain a peaceful and welcoming atmosphere for visitors so they can experience personal benefit and are able to learn practical skills to live peacefully in a sometimes-chaotic world.


The Place

The most important thing to know about our Retreat Centres is that The Brahma Kumaris community values a healthy, safe, clean and spiritual environment.  We strive to create a conducive atmosphere where everyone can benefit and feel safe.

In keeping with our spiritual principles, smoking, drinking alcohol and consumption of non-prescription drugs or take-away meals (and meat) are not permitted in buildings or around the grounds.

Everyone needs to book in for our retreats and our website system operates on a first come first served basis. Often our retreats can get booked out, so please only book when you are committed to attend the retreat, as you may prevent another being able to book in.

Request for Confirmation emails are sent out a week prior to the retreat for you to confirm or cancel your place.

Each Retreat Centre offers a different range of activities.  Here in the Blue Mountains, we offer morning meditation before breakfast. During the retreat program there will be facilitator input, meditation experiences, group activities, personal reflection time and conversations with other like-minded people.
We offer freshly prepared vegetarian meals, which are cooked in a state of meditative reflection and served in an atmosphere of peace for all registered participants.

Please enquire about your special dietary needs.

The Brahma Kumaris share their spiritual knowledge free of charge (worldwide) in the spirit of making it available to everyone. The Centre is run by volunteers who are financially independent.

Although our programs have no fixed fee in the spirit of community service, guests are encouraged to make a financial contribution towards the running costs of meals, accommodation and the maintenance of facilities at the Retreat Centre. For further information, please email or phone.
