Meditation Retreats

Calling Home: Yanai Postelnik in Devon

Yanai Postelnik could never have imagined how his life was going to change when – after a lengthy jaunt through Asia – he arrived at Gaia House in Devon for a silent meditation retreat in 1990.

The Cantabrian returned to Gaia House to work in 1991, and remains there to this day – working as a lay Buddhist minister and running regular silent meditation retreats in Devon and throughout the world.

Yanai and his wife, Catherine McGee, own a home in Ashburton, an ancient stannary town on the edge of the famous Dartmoor National Park, which has been described as one of the last great wildernesses in the UK.

He’s calling home this morning.
