Course outline

Explore the nature of consciousness on Scotland's Holy Isle

Mindsprings' Autumn retreats on Holy Island are aimed at practioners who have been meditating for a while and are looking to go a little deeper in their practice.

This October week is especially designed to appeal to those who are finding their practice a bit rigid and dry. In the friendly circle of the Mindsprings Meditation community, we will take our time to explore the very basic and free quality of our consciousness . The inspiration will come from the spontaneous songs of the Tibetan yogi Milarepa, though there no requirement for you to be a vajrayana practitioner.

Last year we spent the Autumn retreat sitting out for extended periods. This year will be a mix of practice and discussion in the Peace Hall and some opportunities to practice in the wilder elements of the Island. It is, however, not a "sitting out' retreat.
