Course outline

An opportunity to spend 5 days on retreat - to unwind, relax, become calm again in the most beautiful setting of Holy Isle.

Tina and Dave have trained and taught together for many years working for themselves and a variety of different organisations including at Samye Ling and for the Mindfulness Association. In 2019, they were enrolling people for this wonderful retreat of calming yoga and meditation before the advent of the pandemic forced them to cancel. Now they are ready to run the retreat again. Alongside yoga and meditation practices and group discussions there will also be plenty of time to explore the island's history and landscape, together or on our own, as well as time to enjoy socialising and some personal time. The Centre on the Holy Isle is run entirely by volunteers and there will also be the opportunity to help the volunteers with some light duties around the centre.
