A Pilgrimage to REST - The Retreat

What to expect.

This weekend residential retreat will provide opportunity for connection to Self, others and nature.
It is an 
opportunity to 'take a pause', REST and gain insight into how we connect with life, and learn to live with ourselves and others in a clear and compassionate way. 
We will learn and practice essential meditation and mindfulness practices to cultivate greater awareness, compassion and 'ease with life'. We will immerse into practices for 'deep rest' and enjoy mindful movement to liberate both the body and mind. We will gather for learning and discussion. The weekend will be steadily paced allowing ample time for rest and reflection.

The weekend will offer a number of practices including:

Guided Breathing and Deep Relaxation Practices.
Guided Meditation Practices (including Yoga Nidra).
Mindful Movement.

We will also have plenty of opportunity for walks, 'quiet time' as well as informal discussion.
No experience is required for any of these practices and EVERYTHING IS OPTIONAL.
Come as you are with an open and seeking heart and mind!

Our retreat group (max 10 retreat guests) will have the entire house to ourselves.
The house has plenty of tranquil indoor and outdoor communal spaces.
The space, the surroundings and the nourishing practices invite meaningful connection with nature and oneself. 
NO
 distractions.
