Quiet days at Landermere - from your home!
I have offered now several quiet days at Landermere (and many more from home in the last 2 years), as I so much enjoy the peacefulness and inner calm in my own times of silent retreat. Landermere is a lovely setting for reflection and contemplation and I have come to realise that inner peacefulness can be built upon in us all by shared practice wherever we are .......There is no charge for these retreat days, but you will need to prepare your own food beforehand, generally take care of your own needs without words, without gestures and whispers, be mindful of not disturbing others, and be without mobile phones for a whole day! ..... I hope you will find your time uplifting and replenishing.
Here is a rough programme of how the day will be laid out:
9.30am - Introduction, followed by 30mins quiet chanting of Gayatri Mantra
10.15 - 11.15 Individual time for walking, reading, resting, journal writing etc
11.15 -12.30 Group meditation and Puja
12.30 - 2.30 Individual lunch, walking, resting, reading etc
2.30 - 3.30 Vedic Yoga Nidra (very relaxing)
3.45 - 4.15 Tea together and de-briefing.
When at Landermere, we will use the cottage, garden room, shrine room, little temple, labyrinth and those who would like to can walk around Landermere and on the sea wall.
When at home you will need to be undisturbed and undisturbable for the whole day.
As well as your food, please bring inspirational reading for yourself, your journal if you have one, walking shoes and a blanket or shawl for rest and the Yoga Nidra.Reservations and queries, please contact me. If you have friends who might like this kind of day and will not have heard about it, please pass this on.
