Balance is at the heart of mindfulness
First, just to let you know there's nothing unusual about coming for a whole day of mindfulness. You can sit on chairs or on the floor, whatever is most comfortable
- If you usually sit on a cushion or stool, please bring yours with you. We have some, but they are limited.
- We have lots of chairs.
Most days include periods of sitting and walking,
so you learn a variety of ways to become more mindful.
Often, we have times of silence. If you haven't done much work in silence - relax and see how it
goes. Our tutors are here to help you and support you and you can ask to speak in a separate room if you are struggling. Most people don't find silence a struggle, coming back to speaking is the big jolt!
Bring warm clothes. Layers are best.
We're a farm so the fields can be muddy and this is England
so it rains. Come prepared. If you are here for a day, bring your own lunch - other times for longer retreats we do all the catering.
We keep costs
to around £15 per person, plus there is a fee for credit card bookings - if this is beyond your budget there are always concessions available.
