About the event

These half day retreats are dedicated to spending time with your own meditation practice and are the perfect opportunity to work on your own new or developing practice in a safe, supportive space.
 
We will cover the three main forms of meditation: concentration, consciousness and awareness from Eastern and Western traditions, as well as some physical exercises to encourage effective postures in meditation and to be able to sit for prolonged periods.  You will also be guided in breathing exercises (pranayama) to prepare the body for meditation.  There will be discussions covering daily practices and we will explore the use of guidance from the yoga traditions such as the yamas and niyamas to enrich one’s practice even when we are not on our cushion.  
 
You will leave feeling centred, grounded and inspired to either create your own daily practice, or with some new practices to try out in your existing one.
