Winter is a time of change and reflection. This day retreat is an opportunity to pause for a while and explore what this time of year means for us, to recognise its gifts as well as its challenges.
The practices will be a mixture of gentle movement, breathwork, mindful work and meditation. The emphasis will be on cultivating kindness and compassion for ourselves and others.
We will try to do as much of this work as possible outdoors, weather permitting, bringing an appreciation of nature and the changing season into our practice. Sometimes we just need to step out of the relentless “busy-ness” of life and investigate a different way of being.
This event will be jointly led by Donald of Wellpresent and Melissa Lomas. It is intended to be gentle introduction to mindfulness using the practices of meditation and yoga.
We will also explore ways in which we can bring a meditative awareness into daily activity.
