Ladywell Spirituality Centre, Godalming, Surrey Jan 2014/15
Bonhays Retreat Centre, Dorset June 2013
The Mill House Retreat, Normandy, Sept 2015
We offer Introductory Retreats and Retreats for experienced meditators. Its a chance to discover Mindfulness more intensively or to deepen your practice. Our retreats are relaxed, carefully planned and fun. Perfect for nourishing body, mind and heart!
Each day will include practices you are familiar with as well as new ones, periods of silence and shared reflection. We plan our retreats to include a balance of sitting, guided movement including some Qi Gong, walking meditation, standing and lying down incorporating some Mindful Self-Compassion too. Sometimes we include a formal talk about some element of practice or Buddhist Psychology – all our teaching is in response to what’s happening and will support you in befriending and exploring whatever is showing up for you. There’s usually plenty of time around meal breaks for going on a little walk or resting, and as ever we encourage you to listen to what feels right for you in terms of pacing. It’s a time for you to drop into more intimacy with your experience, awake to all of your senses, moment by moment. And its often a lot of good fun too!
