About the Event

Take a break from the speed and complexity of life and re-connect with the things that

really matter: feeling centered and connected to ourselves, others, the environment and

our purpose in life. World events have been taxing for our nervous systems and this

retreat is an opportunity to calm down and deeply nourish and resource ourselves,

which will of course benefit others too.

Mindful movement is highly effective in down-regulating our stress levels, particularly

when done spaciously and with an emphasis on presence and enjoyment. It will help us

to feel well-toned and grounded in our sensory experience, less prone to mental

proliferation. We are drawing from several disciplines: Chi-Kung, Yoga, Feldenkrais

Method and fascia stretches. It doesn’t require any particular degree of fitness and

flexibility, and people with particular health issues should get in touch with Ratnadevi

prior to booking.

On the retreat we flow organically between movement and stillness, learning to see,

hear, smell and touch the world with fresh appreciation and open-heartedness, doing

less and being more. The meditations on this retreat will cover a range of mindfulness

practices: sitting, walking, bodyscan and will vary in the degree of guidance, meeting the

needs of people with different levels of previous experience.

Once we have got to know each other, much of the time will be in silence, including

mealtimes and overnight. This will give us the opportunity to go deeper, while still

feeling in connecting with others. There will also be opportunities to share how we are

getting on in small groups. Weather permitting some practice will take place outside, in

the peaceful and magical setting of the island – maybe doing walking meditation among

the horses.
