An opportunity to take part in a mini retreat whilst staying at home.
Would you enjoy a two hour sitting and walking meditation in the comfort of your own home? This will be a lovely opportunity to have some much needed space for yourself to relax and have a deeper meditation experience in a supportive group. A retreat at home may be a very different experience to going away but it can be just as enriching and offer many insights. What will it involve? Two sitting and two walking meditations with some time for reflection and sharing afterwards.
I don't live on my own - can I take part? Yes. But you will need to dedicate a space in the house that can be yours for two hours and an understanding from those that live with you that you do not wish to be disturbed.
Where will I do the walking meditations? There are several possibilities. You may be able to have easy access to a garden where you are able to leave your mobile devise nearby to hear the chimes to bring you in. You may have a garden but are unable to leave your mobile devise nearby - I suggest a timer or alarm clock to take outside with you will help. You may not have access to a garden or feel that the use of the garden may bring you into contact with other members of the household and that's not ideal. In which case you can do your walking meditation in the same space you are also doing your sitting meditation. I have devised a walking meditation that will make this an interesting and rich experience for you.
What will I need to bring with me? Bring a shawl or a blanket incase you cool down. Buy or pick yourself some lovely flowers that you can have with you nearby. Arrange the room so that it feels comfortable and welcoming, a sacred space for you to spend some quality time with yourself. Oh, and have a scrummy biscuit and a nice cup of something hot ready for when it's finished and before we spend some time sharing.
Sounds perfect, when is it and how much does it cost? New date in June to be confirmed 10.30am - 12.30pm Cost - donations. Give what feels comfortable for you and if you really feel you need this and finances are tight, you are welcome to attend for free with no judgements.
If you are interested then please contact me here to sign up. You will need to have Zoom installed on your computer or mobile devise and I will send you the ID and password the day before the retreat.
