The retreat will be held primarily, but not completely, in silence. It will include formal Zen practice and times for walks in the fabulous surrounding countryside.
Accommodation is in shared bedrooms. We will be self-catering and all meals will be vegetarian. If you have additional dietary requirements, please let us know.
Meditation cushions (zafus) will be available but we have a limited supply, it will help a lot if you bring your own sitting gear.
