Issue 9: Spring

Dancing Mountains
Camping Retreat
Ermington, South Devon

Friday 7th May to Sunday 9th May

Once again Sue and Adam have generously offered use of their lovely home and grounds for this retreat. The spacious house in a superb natural setting will provide a wonderful opportunity to practice and work together. This is a self-led silent retreat with recorded dharma talks and discussion sessions each morning. There will also be simple services morning, noon and evening as well as sitting and walking meditation both inside and in the extensive grounds surrounding the house. The retreat will be suitable for both experienced and those beginning a regular practice. There will be two 1 hour work periods on Sat. and one on Sun. based around food preparation and garden work. If you are travelling by car please bring with you basic gardening tools such as fork, spade, hoe or rake as well as suitable gardening clothing/footwear.

Please arrive after 6pm on Friday 7th May. A large field with the idyllic River Erme running along its border will be available for camping. If you wish to attend the retreat but feel unable to camp please ring Michael 01803 732761.
There will be a light meal and a short sitting prior to going into silence. The retreat will finish at 15.00 on Sunday 9th May.
