Self-care for Sensitive Souls
Reconnect with your inner resources
There’s something that often surprises people on our retreats.
As you might expect, we start by sitting quietly … we do the familiar things … we practise settling in our body, resting in our breath, bringing our wandering mind back (lots of times), and opening ourselves to a deeper truth within.
And this isn’t always easy. We know that meditation for all its rewards, can be challenging.
But what’s unexpected is how much easier - and yet deeper - our practice becomes when we’re outside, in nature.
Some of the most beautiful surprises and aha moments can come from a simple walking meditation.
The experience is profound yet readily accessible.
So what exactly happens?
You’d like to try out a meditation retreat, but you have some questions about the practicalities. Do I need to be an experienced meditator, can I get a lift with someone, do I have to bring anything, will I be ok if my body hurts …
We've got you covered. Here are answers to the practical things people ask us about retreats.
Many of us know how challenging it is to keep up a meditation practice, even with the help of a regular class. (Or even to try meditating at all.)
Oh, the distractions.
So is it really worth it to take a whole day out to retreat into silent contemplation?
