5 - 7 May 2023
You might be feeling that life is taking over, being pulled in all directions, that you are too busy or having too many
responsibilities. It might be that you have spread yourself too thin, or have a busy family life, work might be
stressful, your mind might be too noisy or other things might be putting pressure on you. Or you might just want a
change of scenery for no specific reason.
This gentle retreat is a wonderful opportunity to take a break from it all.
Take time to stand still, to just be, to breathe, to get back to yourself, to come home to yourself and to the moment.
Make space in your breathing, in your body, in your mind, in your days, and in your life.
Catch your breath, bring joy back into the house, give yourself the gift of pausing, and just being.
Replenish yourself, and take your time to unwind, refresh, rejuvenate and restore.
“When we return home, even for the briefest flicker, our peaceful hearts will glisten with tears of joy.”
Find some inner space, emotional balance, clarity of mind and relaxation through sitting meditation, walking
meditation, breath work and Qi Gong.

improve your state of being. It is about learning nourishing practices for health, vitality, happiness, joy, connection, well-being and fulfilment. It is easy to learn and enjoyable to do. The movements are slow, flowing, rhythmic, natural and accessible.
No previous experience required; anyone can join.
