yoga and meditation

Friday, 6 July 2018 to Friday, 13 July 2018 2018

These retreats combine introductory meditation teaching with yoga. The supportive atmosphere of the retreat allows us to develop and deepen both practices, and understand how the two augment each other. Both meditation and yoga teaching will be from first principles and will be suitable for complete beginners. 

These retreats are open to all.  They are suitable for both beginners and those with more experience but no previous experience is assumed.  All these retreats include introductory meditation teaching and periods of silence.

mindfulness and the path to freedom

Friday, 8 April 2016 to Friday, 15 April 2016 2016

Far from just a means of relaxation, the Buddha’s teaching of mindfulness can bring new levels of meaning, direction and joy to our lives. On this retreat we will be exploring some of the most relevant teachings for modern life, and how we can directly put them into practice. We will be doing some light physical movement of Qi Gong to help us inhabit our bodies more fully.
