A typical St Mary’s  retreat starts on the Friday evening. You are free to arrive any time after 3pm on the Friday afternoon and collect your room key from reception.

There will be a session at 5 pm on the Friday evening At 7.45 we do a walking meditation which is followed by breakfast at 8.30. From 10 – 12.45 we do tai chi and chi kung (with a tea break about 11).
Lunch is at 1pm and this is the main meal of the day. After lunch there is free time to do what you want. Visit Perth (bus or walk), walks or just relaxation.
5pm is tai chi time. This is a good opportunity if you want to learn the tai chi form or improve your form. This will take us up to 6.45pm for 7 pm meal time.
