RETREAT THEME

The art of now – living in the moment

In our busy lives, we find it very difficult to relax and enjoy ourselves. Even while doing things we like, our mind is rarely focused on the present. We are constantly making plans for the future, worrying about what might happen next, and never feeling truly content.

At this event we will:

  • Find contentment and satisfaction within
  • Uncover the meaning of each moment of our life
  • Learn how to improve our inner peace and concentration

The retreat will include:

simple guided meditations that can be reproduced at home

practical instructions for a happy life

time to relax in the woodland & enjoy a peaceful walk

opportunity to ask the teacher questions

browse our bookshop

What people are saying

Stunning setting for meditation and very well organised. We really enjoyed the teaching and lots of new tools learnt. I’m looking forward to the next one!

Anne-Marie

A perfect way to take time out and experience the benefits of light, relaxed and guided meditations.  Set in unique and special surroundings with opportunities to explore the tranquil woodland.

Frances

I’m not sure if it’s the sunshine pouring through the large windows, or feeling surrounded by peaceful woodland, or simply the warmth and practical advice from the experienced nun, but the fact is that I love these meditation retreats. What a treat!

Claudia

The Woodland setting is always a tranquil place, but with a gentle covering of snow and bright sunshine along with the mindful teachings and meditations, it took on a ‘magical’ feel. Thoroughly recommended.
