Using mindfulness meditative techniques, this totally silent retreat offers an opportunity to contemplate in the transition from autumn to winter the meaning of change, uncertainty and adjustment
Set in the time of year when we start to transit from autumn to winter, this retreat will enable us to go within and integrate change and all it means for us and go into a hibernatory period that is winter with clarity and equanimity. This may be especially relevant in these ever changing times we are living in where we are asked to be more in a state of being than doing.
Anne Simpson, an experienced Course Facilitator and Quaker Healer, will be running this silent retreat.
