The Photography + Meditation Programme is back! Whether you love photography or are a nature lover, this programme is one of the best retreats into the greens that you could have.

Kechara’s 2D1N photography and meditation retreat is held in the stunning environs of Kechara Forest Retreat in Bentong, for you to discover the world of your inner self and the secrets of a beautiful forest full of positive energies.

The photography sessions will be guided by local professional photographer and Chief Editor of TravelMate Magazine and Executive Director ZH Wong. At the same time, you will be guided by Pastor Adeline Woon in a journey of self discovery and peace.

On Day One, activities include the teaching and demonstration of basic photography techniques, and participants will have many opportunities to apply what they have learned.

On Day Two, participants will experience Sunrise Meditation, where they will learn the basic techniques of meditation atop a natural hill.

Chef CK Leong will prepare healthy and delicious vegetarian meals for participants.

Below are some comments from participants of the previous retreat:

 

I am able to find my love for photography, nature and etc again. Everything starts from inside us. Live in the moment! I’m grateful for everything during the retreat. ~Alice Lim

This two days one night retreat gives you an opportunity to be away from the city, to be with yourself and immerse yourself in taking photos and in nature. This is really a very valuable experience. Through this activity, I learn about meditation as well. I do hope in the future to have the opportunity to know more about meditation. ~Lin Ming Jia

Everyone involved in this retreat put their effort in and strived to make it a success. We all can really feel that. I would like to thank the chef who prepares such delicious meals during the retreat. That’s the best meals for retreat I have ever tried. Special thanks to our pastors and Jace as well. I would join the next retreat and recommend my friends to join as well! ~Desmond Lin

Sunrise meditation is definitely a session which is able to open up our inner self. Being here in Kechara Forest Retreat to do meditation, at the same time to do photography, I realised that meditation and photography has something in common which is — to be focused. ~ZH Wong
