One-Day Mindfulness Retreat
‘A Sense of Place – Summer’
Sunday 30th June 2019
10 am – 4 pm
This one-day retreat will combine Mindfulness, Poetry and Art in the tranquil surroundings of the Centre and the adjoining award-winning 50 acre woodland.
Celebrate the long days of Summer and join into the gentle seasonal rhythm of nature.
At this time of year fauna and flora are in abundance in the woodlands.
Encountering wildlife, hearing exuberant birdsong, watching busy insects and butterflies basking in the sun, spotting vivid splashes of colour in the wildflowers and immersing yourself in the different shades of green ….
The morning will be spent exploring the woodland by using your senses of sight, sound, smell and touch which will not only deepen your connection with nature but also improve connection with yourself.
It will be a gentle and slow-paced day that will encourage you to allow yourself to just ‘be’ and embrace the stillness and discover acceptance and appreciation that will unfold naturally.
Your tutor will provide guidance to a variety of mindful exercises and activities that you can practise at home to benefit your wellbeing.
During the day you will be using the surrounding landscape to inspire you and to explore your unique creative potential. In the afternoon you are invited to create a unique piece of art work or write some poetry that you will take away with you.
You don’t need to have artistic talent to take part as the tranquillity of the surroundings will inspire and encourage creativity.
The day is lead by an experienced Mindfulness tutor, based at the Woodland Skills Centre.
At midday we will have a simple vegetarian meal together.
All materials and food are provided and included in the course fee.
This course is suitable for anyone over the age of 18.
Places are strictly limited – Small group size – Booking essential
