Q & A
Our summer retreat is an opportunity to come together as a community to nourish our practice of mindfulness and cultivate our capacities for joy, ease and compassion.
The retreat will be held at the beautiful Wiston Lodge in South Lanarkshire. Over the course of an inspiring 5 days, we will have time for formal meditation practices, to share from the heart and listen deeply, while also enjoying the opportunity to be close to nature, to relax and restore ourselves.
The first three days of the retreat (Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday), will focus on nourishing our personal practice of mindfulness, while on the fourth day we will explore the question of how to share mindfulness with others. On the fifth day, we’ll explore what inspiration we can carry forward into our lives.
Deep relaxation is a practice of learning to release tensions in the body and to nourish the body with feelings of ease, peace and joy. In this practice, we normally lie down so as to give the body the opportunity to rest deeply.
Each day we will have the opportunity to listen to a talk/workshop to inspire our practice. The talk is offered to encourage our practice mindfulness, to aid our process of self-inquiry and to provide guidance on how we can cultivate our capacities for wisdom and compassion.
Circle sharing is a collective practice of mindful communication. It involves sitting in a circle with a small group of other practitioners and sharing what is alive in our experience from our heart and listening to others with non-judgment and compassion. This practice offers a space to be with others. It can be healing, inspiring, and heart-warming.
If you’ve not completed any of our programmes, are not interested in teaching mindfulness to others, or are new to mindfulness, that’s OK! This retreat will be open to all levels of experience. During our teaching workshops, there will be alternative options to attend such as guided deep relaxations and workshops on integrating mindfulness practice.
