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.
