Spacious- Mind meditation is delighted to have found a stunning new retreat venue at
Matara near Tetbury.
It's an exclusive wedding venue in the spring and summer months and we have secured the rooms looking onto the Zen garden for a days retreat .
The gardens have been lovingly transformed into a place of seclusion and peace, ideal for mindful walking meditations and enjoying the beauty of nature. The meditation rooms are lavishly designed with eastern furnishings and decor, looking out onto a Zen pond, complete with fish.
This is a premier venue and we have exclusive access to it for the day. It is only 30 mins drive from Cheltenham.
We welcome beginners to meditation and at lunchtime there will be an opportunity for you to talk to Kathryn or Claire about your practice or the day in general. It's a nurturing and supportive environment for you settle the mind and just 'be'.
Participants are asked to bring and share a vegetarian lunch.
Teas and coffees are provided.
