One-Day Mindfulness Retreat
‘A Sense of Place – Winter’
Saturday 26th January 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.
There is no such thing as bleak midwinter!
At this time of year the woodlands provide beautiful abstract forms and shapes and offer views that are normally screened off by foliage.
You don’t need to have artistic talent to take part as the tranquillity of the surroundings will inspire and encourage creativity.
It will be a gentle and slow-paced day with plenty of opportunity to explore and immerse yourself in nature, find stillness and calm and time for mindful meditation exercises.
With guidance from your tutor you will learn to deeply connect with nature 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.
Allow yourself to ‘be’ and embrace the stillness and discover the acceptance and appreciation that will unfold naturally.
During this day you will be using the surrounding landscape to inspire you to create a unique piece of art work that you will take away with you.
The day is lead by an experienced Mindfulness tutor, based at the Woodland Skills Centre, who will guide you through some short mindful meditation exercises that you can use at home to benefit your wellbeing.
At midday we will have a simple vegetarian meal together.
All materials and food are provided and included in the course fee.
No previous experience required. This course is suitable for anyone over the age of 18.
