This comfortable winter retreat is open only to all those who have already completed the eight week Mindfuless for Everyday Living (MBSR) or equivalant course. It is a mainly silent retreat, an opportunity to be with others who wish to deepen their mindfulness practice. In the delightful and cosy setting of Gean House, you will find the time and space you need to relax, move more deeply into your practice and benefit from skilled guidance in yoga and meditation. We will come together for yoga and formal practice in the lovely Graden Room , relax in the Main Hall around the inglenook fire, and walk in the gardens. Our experienced tutors create a warm, nourishing and supportive atmosphere that will make this weekend not just a time for growth, but also a very special treat.
All bookings are for single, en-suite rooms, however, if you are coming with a friend and wish to share a room, please contact us about a small fee reduction.
To fully experience the benefits of a retreat, it's important to make space and time from our normal pursuits and concerns. We therefore suggest to you that while on retreat you only use mobile phone for emergencies, that you refrain from television, alcohol or other stimulants and that you remain within the extensive grounds of Gean House. These bounds that we set for ourselves can be truly liberating!
