Quiet days at LandermereI have offered now several quiet days at Landermere in the last weeks, as I so much enjoy the peacefulness and inner calm here in my own times of silent retreat. Landermere is a lovely setting for reflection and contemplation.Some more quiet days in the next weeks - Saturday 22nd February and Saturday 14th March. You are welcome to come for any or all of these days. There is room for up to eight people, so please let me know asap if you would like a place reserved. There is no charge for these retreat days, but you will need to bring your own food, 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 here 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.
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 (which has been recently mown and is now much more pleasant, the grass not being waist high!). 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.
