Accommodation for the day retreat will be at 6A Main St Blackburn, our meditation room. Early birds get the choice of chairs - 6 low and comfortable meditation chillout chairs, great for cross-legged sitting, or taller chairs for normal sitting. Attendees are also welcome to make themselves comfortable on the floor by bringing their own favourite large cushion.
At lunch time, it would be good to get some fresh air. Outside the premises is the Blackburn Village retail precinct with its many excellent coffee shops. Or 5 minutes would get you into your car and down to the creeklands for a short nature walk. Of course you could walk down to the creeklands, but then you would have to turn around as soon as you got there, for the walk back. Whatever you choose, it can be an excercise in mindfulness!
There is ample free parking nearby on Sundays.
