Summer Gathering: A Day Retreat
25th July 2021 @ 11:00 - 17:00£75 – £140
Summer is a time of high energy. The closeness of the sun means we benefit from the warmth and light of longer days, and the liveliness of nature at its most full. If harnessed well, we might use this creative energy to inspire and uplift ourselves and others. But, after the uncertainty we’ve faced this past year and as the world opens up again, it may also quite easily leave us feeling scattered.
Come to rest and reconnect with yourself in a friendly and nourishing environment; to enjoy the energy of the season whilst also acknowledging it’s transience. We’ll create space together to move, to breathe, to spend time outdoors, to eat, drink and talk.
What can you expect?
– Supportive environment with a small group of eight + retreat hosts
– Energising morning yoga practice
– A swim in the natural swimming lake (optional)
– Calming nature walk in the beautiful grounds
– Delicious lunch, tea and refreshments throughout the day
– Restorative afternoon movement and Yoga Nidra practice
– Time for reflection, journaling and sharing with the group
– Gifts to take home
