This is a rare opportunity to experience a weekend of silent yoga and mindfulness meditation practice in the relaxing and nurturing environment of The Tree.
For those people who would like to deepen their practice. This is an ideal opportunity to enjoy the precious gift of silence while at the same time improving your health, calming your mind and awakening to your true basic nature.
Noble silence begins after evening practice on Friday and ends after breakfast on Sunday. The weekend will consist of yoga, meditation, mantra and breathing practice (pranayama) and relaxation. There is the opportunity to receive a silent massage on Saturday afternoon. These can be booked on Friday night. There will be readings from a spiritual book on Saturday evening. Participants on the weekend will be expected to agree to certain guidelines and will have a chance to ask any questions in a pre-weekend phone conversation. A full evening meal will be served on Friday night. On Saturday, breakfast and lunch will be the main meals of the day with a lighter snack served in the early evening (all in silence). The retreat will end after lunch on Sunday. No alcohol will be served on this weekend.
For further details please ring and speak to Claire.
