Come spend a week devoted to “practicing presence”, inspired by a community of kindred spirits, and enlivened by the beauty of nature. Our gatherings make the most of this ideal setting, with a retreat format that balances meditation, nature encounter and community building, for an experience of insight, growth and renewal.
We spend each morning together in silence, following a formal schedule of sitting and walking meditation sessions. Afternoon is devoted to solitary nature-contemplation and free time. Evenings focus on theme talks and discussion. We end the day with a candlelight chapel service.
This retreat is suitable for beginning to experienced meditators, from a variety of traditions and faith backgrounds. Our silent time together is compatible with many forms of meditation, such as Buddhist calm-abiding, Christian centering prayer, and many other simple “be here now” styles.
