A movement of Prayer, a moment of Reality, a body of Mystery...

Join B for three-days of deep communion and prayerfulness. These days are a precious Calling to bring Greater Awareness to your Life in all areas. B's unique and deeply enlightening perspective and his heartful invitation to open to greater Love in all things will ignite your heart and Being from the inside out. Don't miss it!

Saturday 4th, 10 am to Monday 6th, 10 pm

A Day on Retreat

Every retreat with B unfolds in its own unique rhythm – a typical day has three sometimes four sessions and a break at lunch with plenty of time to enjoy, to explore and commune as you deepen in the heart.

Venue & Location

The retreat will be at Ohinetahi Retreat Centre: B's home and international centre of operations for the Bernie Prior Foundation. The Centre is situated in Governors Bay on the Banks Peninsula backed by hills at the head of the natural harbour of Lyttelton, a 20 minute drive from Christchurch.

The retreat will be held on-site with accommodation nearby in the local village of Governors Bay.

"This has been a retreat of incredible depth - sweet profound intensity and depth-days of Pure Love I felt a vast space open, a space of infinite delicacy and tenderness. I now know behind the patterns, behind emotions and thoughts a space from which all things arise. The world can now no longer be seen and met on the surface but only in and as the Heart."
Sonia, Italy

"I learned staying in my heart, receiving in the heart, communicating with the heart. Everything my eyes beheld taught me things beyond words. We are limitless beings beyond body, we were born in different places with names for this lifetime, and we met regardless of gender, age, and occupation.  I am grateful for the precious time we shared together. Receiving the Form, dancing the Form, I as an individual disappear. Beyond time and space, I become a part of quiet and soft movement, and I feel the breath and pulse of the Universe. Nothing is there, but I am connected with everything. The Form takes me to beautiful quietness that is nothing but love."
Saki, Japanv
