Being on Retreat
Being on retreat can be wonderful and relaxing. Our lives are so busy that it is easy to loose touch with the deeper
aspect of ourselves.The time we spend on retreat can help us reconnect with our true nature.
It also takes us out of our comfort zone and can therefore be challenging. It's a great opportunity to stretch yourself.
There will be plenty of support for you from the leaders of the retreat.
The program will include periods of meditation, Yoga classes, writing exercises, walking and free time. There will always be coffee,
tea and some snacks available between meals. You are welcome to bring your own snacks. If you have special dietary needs
let us know 2 weeks in advance and we will do our best to accomodate you.
Please feel free to call me if you would like to discuss whether or not this retreat is right for you.
A list of "suggested items to bring" and detailed travel directions will be provided upon registration

In these busy times it is easy to lose sight of what is most meaningful in our lives,
sometimes taking for granted so much of this precious life. The practice of Mindfulness Meditation in a silent day long format
with the support of community and experienced teachers, allows us to cultivate our true and natural compassionate presence.
This presence then becomes a gift to all whose lives we touch. You are invited to join us for a day of practice,
to clear our minds and open our hearts.
