This retreat will interweave the practices of meditation with mindful movement and yoga practice, all as supports for freeing ourselves from habitual patterns, as we recognise them both psychologically and in the tension patterns in our bodies.
The retreat will include two periods of mindful movement each day along with silent and guided meditations, and meetings with the teachers. The movement practices are designed to greatly enhance the sensitivity and steadiness of mind in attending deeply to moment-to-moment experience, and to be integrative in bringing awareness and inquiry into all moments and activities of life.
A limited number of camping places are available for this retreat at a reduced rate. It is not possible to book these online. Please contact our Reception team to enquire. Please note that we can only accommodate small one/two-person tents and each retreatant must have their own tent. Please be aware that if there is poor weather we may be unable to accommodate campers in the house.
