Programme Outline

  • 8.30am – 9.00am: Check in
  • 9.30am – 10.15am: Orientation
    Briefing on house rules, programme & facilities.
  • 10.15am – 11.00am: Meditation Fundamentals 1
    Meditation is the most beneficial exercise for gaining clarity of mind. You’ll go through the principles and benefits of meditation, followed by a guided meditation.
  • 11.00am – 12.30pm: Sitting Meditation
    Sitting meditation is a constructive method to develop discipline of body and mind. In our fast paced society, it has become a challenge to simply be still. The constant distraction from an abundance of activities to the beeping mobile phone ‘stuck’ to the palms of our hands has created a habit of needing and wanting a continuous stream of new excitement, thus creating a society that is easily bored.
    Sitting meditation redevelops discipline as you’ll sit in physical and mental stillness to gain clarity of mind and realise your fullest potential.
  • 1.00pm – 2.30pm: Lunch
    You’ll be served a menu created for the wellbeing of your body and mind. During the meal, you’re encouraged to practise eating meditation techniques intended to create mindfulness that will help improve your digestive health and allow you to rediscover the flavour of quality natural and healthy recipes.
  • 2.30pm – 3.30pm: Meditation Fundamentals 2
    You’ll continue to study the benefits of meditation based on research done by renowned institutions which show how meditation enhances your general health and improves your relationships with others and especially yourself. More challenging meditations such as walking and contemplative meditations will also be taught.
  • 4.00pm – 5.00pm: Meditation in Nature
    You’ll apply the development of awareness and being present in the midst of nature.
  • 5.00pm – 6.00pm: Expression Through Art
    Expressing experiential learning through art is a beneficial process that transforms thoughts and sensations which go through your mind into tangible images. Using different methods of expression and communication like painting is a refreshing approach that taps into an area of your mind that has been long neglected.
  • 6.30pm – 8.00pm: Freshen Up & Dinner
    During the meal, you’re encouraged to practise eating meditation techniques intended to create mindfulness that will help improve your digestive health and allow you to rediscover the flavour of quality natural and healthy recipes.
  • 8.00pm – 9.00pm: Contemplation Meditation
    Gratitude is one of the most empowering forms of meditation to develop happiness. When done properly, it enhances your quality of life by developing a conscious appreciation and innate gratitude towards life and all living beings. This session combines two powerful meditative techniques of contemplation and single-pointed concentration.
  • 9.00pm: Day Ends
  • 6.00am – 6.20am: Hot Drink
  • 6.30am – 7.30am: Dawn Meditation
    Dawn is one of the most precious moments of the day yet we often miss the opportunity to soak it up as we’re constantly rushing to start our usual hustle and bustle routines. In this session, you’ll observe the beauty of the dawn.
  • 7.30am – 8.30am: Walking Meditation
    Walking meditation is a beautiful way to get in touch with yourself even though it’s a more challenging method of meditation where you’ll focus on both the breath and walking.
    Being in the present is very empowering for developing clarity of mind. You’ll sharpen your senses as you learn to develop and hold clarity of thought while your body is moving. This meditation technique also relieves you from the tension and stress of “the rat race” because you’ll be able to enter meditational mode quickly to realign and re-ground your thoughts under “busy” circumstances.
  • 8.30am – 9.30am: Breakfast
    The most important meal of the day where nutrition and flavour find a perfect balance.
  • 9.30am – 10.45am: Sensory Discovery with Herbs
    Your sense of smell triggers past experiences and affects your state of mind. In this session, we aim to bring your mind to a state of calm and serenity by using the natural fragrance of herbs from our own garden.
  • 11.00am – 12.30pm Tour of Kechara Forest Retreat
  • 12.30pm – 1.30pm: Lunch
    During the meal, you’re encouraged to practise eating meditation techniques intended to create mindfulness that will help improve your digestive health and allow you to rediscover the flavour of quality natural and healthy recipes.
  • 1.30pm – 5.00pm: Debrief and Closing
    It’s always fulfilling having completed a wholesome retreat as your body and mind are in harmony and clarity. The key to experiencing this balance in the long term is consistent effort. Our facilitators will support your internalisation of the retreat with a closing session and also introduce follow up programs that are available to support you to further realise the benefits of meditation.
  • 5.00pm – 6.00pm: Pack & Check-out
  • 6.00pm: Program Ends


Program Benefits

The activities in this program have been specially designed to allow you to achieve the following benefits within the comfort and ease of a well-designed retreat space.



Interaction with nature has many physical health benefits. Based on the commonly accepted healing benefit of Mother Nature, our Inner Peace Retreat includes the following:

  • Fresh Air: An abundance of oxygen purifies the blood, soothes the nerves, promotes healthy and vibrant skin and contains beneficial negative ions.
  • Green Contact: You’ll enjoy rare direct contact with the natural elements of the forest
  • Detoxification: Meditation is emotional detox. Breathing fresh air and eating balanced meals improves circulation and hence helps emit toxins from your body.


Calm & Peaceful Mind

Physical health must be complemented with emotional wellbeing. In fact, many doctors advocate emotional health as a core ingredient for physical healing.

The Inner Peace Retreat provides a platform on which you can exercise this awareness and reap its benefits.

  • Silent Therapy: Helps relieve stress and develops clarity of mind
  • Emotional Healing: Nature is a natural anti-depressant and stress reliever
  • Concentration: A form of mind training that improves your performance at work and enhances your effectiveness in creating a balanced lifestyle
  • Positive Attitude: Nurture this state of mind through reflection and contemplation in our meditation exercises


Team Bonding

Open communication and the opportunity for individual expression at the end of the retreat allows you to understand your team members’ behaviour and personalities better. A calmer and more focused mind helps to reduce interpersonal conflict as well, thus resulting in effective working relationships and improvement of team functionality to achieve common goals.

What to Bring

  • Comfortable walking shoes
  • Comfortable clothing that allows you to sit cross-legged on a meditation cushion
  • Long-sleeved light cotton shirts for walking meditation
  • A hat and sunglasses to protect from the sun
  • Sunscreen and mosquito repellent
  • Water tumbler
  • Small towel (for perspiration)
  • Face mask, face shield, hand sanitiser
  • Medication or antihistamines if you have allergies to pollen, etc.
