The ACMM Meditation Teaching Retreats provide a special opportunity for fellow students and coaches to come together.

This retreat is open exclusively to students and graduates of the Certificate, Advanced Certificate and Diploma in Guiding and Teaching Meditation and Mindfulness at ACMM. There is something special that only the atmosphere and experience of a residential retreat can provide:

  • enjoying extended periods of meditation together
  • connection and sharing with other students
  • deepening your personal practice
  • experiencing the meditation styles taught in our courses
  • inspiration and connection to your goals
  • meet and learning from our dedicated meditation coaches
  • personal reflection
  • in the evenings you can choose to spend time alone in your 4 star room overlooking the trees or mingling with the other students
  • participate in practices that you can bring into your own teaching
  • Experience a holistic meditation retreat conducted with the same philosophy as your online training.

We cherish spending this time with our students; many have been studying with us for some time.  These meditation retreats bring together the expertise of our teachers and coaches to provide an immersive and educational experience for all.

Each retreat has its own theme, focus and set of meditations and no two retreats are the same.

You will open to new experiences of meditation and self awareness. Discover new ways to allow meditation into your life through mindful living practices that make life more of a sacred celebration.

On these meditation retreats, you will experience moving and sitting meditation practices, holistic lifestyle sessions, relaxation, self awareness meditations, deeper connection with your inner self, self compassion and much more.

You will be able to deepen your learning by experiencing first hand the power of holistic teaching practices. The retreat is a journey in itself. Held in the beautiful Dandenong Ranges in Melbourne.

The response from students and graduates who have attended has been overwhelming:

It was so special to meet the teachers and some of the other students face to face and share our experiences and stories. I am going home feeling refreshed and renewed.” Sally

I would like to give my heartfelt thanks for the opportunity to attend such a wonderful, nurturing, compassionate environment that your meditation retreat provided me with. I can often feel isolated in the work that I do, especially being in rural Victoria so it was absolutely wonderful to meet such an amazing group of people who are all on a similar journey.” Kerryn

This is easily one of the best things I have ever done for myself and thus for my loved ones. my work, my purpose for being here.. I truly didn’t want the weekend to end…I feel clearer and more connected to my goals.” Jen

I encourage everyone to give themselves the gift of going. It was well worth the investment and what I received as a result was absolutely priceless. I had such an enriching learning experience and boost in confidence.” Natalie
