During the retreat you will learn or develop your mindfulness practice and be introduced to the meditation approach of the Clear Space Path; you will exchange with other participants in a group, in the ‘summer-house’ group-room and the gardens, in talks, in free time, over meals together and on walks in the surrounding forests, hills and mountains.  Each day  begins with a silent meditation, often on the 'platform' open to our wonderful natural surroundings and ends with a themed meditation in the 'summer-house' group space.  The workshop themes of each day then follow this pattern:


day one - developing a mindful way of life : training and practice

day two - understanding relationship : the insights of Martin Buber
day three - listening to ourselves and developing a sense of our needs
day four - meditation as discovery : passage and direction

Good food and comfortable accommodation in a private room is assured and our price of £580 or €650 is fully inclusive from the moment you step off the plane or train.
