Course outline

Take a break from the speed and complexity of life and reconnect with the things that really matter: feeling grounded and loving with ourselves and others, and connected to the wider world and our purpose in life. Global events have been taxing for our nervous systems and this retreat is an opportunity to calm down and deeply nourish and resource ourselves, which will of course benefit others too.

Mindful movement will help us feel well-toned and grounded in our sensory experience. We are drawing from several disciplines: Chi-Kung, Yoga, Feldenkrais Method and fascia stretches. 

Once we have got to know each other, much of the time will be in silence, including mealtimes and overnight. There will be opportunities to share in small groups and weather permitting, some practice will take place outside in the peaceful and magical setting of the island.

The programme will include an hour after breakfast each day working with the resident volunteer community, helping with kitchen, housecare and garden tasks

This retreat is for people with some previous experience and is suitable for mindfulness CPD 

The retreat starts with supper on the first day and finishes after breakfast on the final day.

The work on this retreat does not require any particular degree of fitness and flexibility. 

The retreat is not suitable for people who experience major mental health issues. If in doubt, or if you have a particular health issue, please contact Ratnadevi or Kristine prior to booking.
