Retreats

retreat picWe spend so much of our lives busily engaged with one activity after another that we rarely get a chance to stop and collect ourselves. A retreat gives us that chance to step back and live more simply for a time; to clarify our direction in life and consider those we love more fully.

A retreat can be an adventure; an opportunity to deepen awareness of ourselves and other people around us. There will be time for meditation, guided by experienced teachers, and other activities such as talks, discussion and study groups; and often periods of silence to help the mind really quieten down. Taking place in beautiful and supportive surroundings the experience can still be challenging and sometimes life changing. However, for many the sense of community and friendship that develops is what brings them to return throughout their lives.
