The philosophy of mindfulness and self-compassion will be woven throughout the retreat. You will be invited to practice noticing ‘what is here for you in this moment?’ Ongoing inquiry of what is present will be married in with the deepening into ‘what is needed in this moment?’ Therefore, building the understanding that can come from awareness of experience and the experiencer, holding both in kindness, connection and curiosity.
This retreat allows opportunity to strengthen your ability to be present with yourself just as you are within the safe container of expert guidance by experienced retreat leaders and in a compassionate community of fellow practitioners.
“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing
and rightdoing there is a field.
I’ll meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass
the world is too full to talk about.”
The daily schedule includes guided and silent sitting and walking meditation, mindful movement, daily sense and savour walking outdoors and teaching focused on applying mindfulness and self-compassion, in particular personal practice in daily life. Individual and group inquiry sessions with teachers are included.
