Hellens Manor Day Retreat
Sunday 14th November 2021
Sunday November 14th 2021
I am delighted to have secured a date in the late autumn
for a wonderful day retreat in the beautiful surroundings of Hellens Manor in the village of Much Marcle.
This one day silent meditation retreat is just what you need to relax and reflect before winter really takes hold and the business of Christmas preparations begins.
Hellens is a premier venue and you will have exclusive access to the grounds with its formal and informal gardens, ponds, sculptures and park land: a delight at every turn.
Our sitting meditations will take place in the Great Barn and you will have a chance to visit Hallwood, a twenty minute walk from Hellens. This is an ancient woodland, mentioned in the Doomsday Book and now designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI)
Please note that most of the day will be held in noble silence. If you come with friends you can decide between you if you'd like to talk over the lunch break.
After the introductions and the first meditation, silence descends and this helps to give focus and mindfulness to our day.
'I was a bit anxious about silence but it felt perfectly natural and added to the calm feel of the day. To be honest it was such a relief not to have to talk!' SH
Your two tutors for the day are myself, Kathryn Buxton, and Juita Akhtar.
I have been running retreats for a number of years now and am delighted to welcome Juita to share this wonderful day with me.
Juita is the founder of Moment by Moment meditation and runs regular classes at the Yahra Yoga Studio. She is an accredited Mindfulness Now teacher and a trained Natural Mindfulness Guide.
