Learn or develop the practice of meditation on a retreat. While you don’t need to go on a meditation holiday in order to learn to meditate, most people find it’s the very best way to ease yourself into a firm practice. We have reviewed a wide range of meditation breaks – whether you fancy a Zen Buddhist meditation retreat on the Greek island of Lefkada or a spa hotel with meditation classes in the Himalayas. Meditation aims to give you back control of your mind as well as your life, so whichever you pick the end result should be the same, a feeling of calm and inner peace. Pure bliss.
