Event description

Description

Join me for a very special evening of yoga and forest meditation, under the light of a December full moon.

We'll gather at the Living Classroom, a wooden lodge that sits in the ancient woodland above Durweston in Dorset. The woodburner will be toasty warm, there'll be blankets and cushions, and as always, delicious snacks and hot drinks.

  • The evening will begin with a guided meditation and light yoga session in the Classroom (suitable for all ages and experience).

  • Then we'll take a moonlit walk together in the forest. I'll guide you through simple mindfulness exercises that will awaken and heighten the senses to your surroundings- you'll immediately notice how rich and vibrant your experiences become.

  • Finally, we'll gather round the woodburner with tea and home-made cake. We'll honour the journey so far, as our year comes to a close. And we'll set intentions for the time ahead.

  • The evening will end with a silent meditation.


So take the opportunity to dive deeper into your spiritual practice, to bathe in the magic of a moonlit forest, or to simply enjoy the gentle pace of an evening that is quiet and still.


This retreat is being offered for £20, to include tea and homemade snacks.

FAQs

How do I find the venue?

Take A350 from Shaftesbury towards Blandford. As you approach Blandford, turn right at the traffic lights onto A357, and go over the river bridge towards Durweston. Go through the village and take the left turn onto Norton Lane, which is a narrow, steep lane (postcode at the turning is DT11 0QE). Follow Norton Lane up the hill and go over the cattle grid. Continue to the top of the hill (you'll go over a second cattle grid, and will pass several houses), and turn right onto the unmade track towards Bonsley Wood and the Living Classroom. There will be signs at the Norton Lane turning and Bonsley Wood turning guiding you to 'Forest Retreat'.

What should I bring?

Wear comfortable clothing and bring a weather appropriate jacket if needed. Closed footwear such as trainers or walking boots are recommended. You may also want to bring a blanket to sit on.


What if it's raining?

The retreat will still go ahead. Wear some warm clothing and bring a waterproof jacket so that you can enjoy exploring the forest during rainfall. There will be hot drinks and snacks available, and the opportunity to rest and relax by a woodburning stove if you'd rather not be outside. In the case of extreme weather, I'll contact you by email and let you know that the retreat has been postponed. You will automatically be offered a place on the one of the next retreats.
