Event description

Description

Practicing in silence is an important part of many spiritual disciplines. It allows us to draw deeply away from the busyness of the world and connect in with ourselves.

During the retreat you will be guided through very gentle and simple yoga and tai chi moves and meditations. We will walk amongst the trees at the Guet and eat our lunch, practicing bringing mindful attention to the food. We will then practice further meditations before ending the day.

Throughout the day there will be an emphasis on true acceptance of and self compassion towards whatever you find within.

People often imagine that silence might be intimidating or awkward, but actually often the opposite is true. When the option for speaking is removed we are able to be with each other in a deeper kind of comfortable presence than we normally experience.

Participants are asked to bring a yoga mat, cushion and blanket as well as anything you might need to feel comfortable. Also bring a water bottle and a light packed lunch.

The retreat costs £50 + Eventbrite charges, or there is also a 'pay what you can afford option' for people that might like to come but for whom £50 might be too much of a stretch.

THIS RETREAT IS ONLY OPEN TO THOSE THAT HAVE TAKEN PART PREVIOUSLY IN AN 8 WEEK COURSE
