Awakening to the Natural World
On this weekend retreat we’ll be exploring how an enchanted experience of nature allows us to awaken to a deeper appreciation of the world around us.
While we are of the natural world, we can often feel separate from it. But we can have a more embodied, connected experience of ourselves within nature - where we feel a sense of ease and belonging in the more than merely human world.
We'll be practising mindfulness and metta not just on the meditation cushion, but as part of an awakening to the fullness and beauty of our natural environment; where even a few square inches of grassy earth can feel like a vast landscape we lose ourselves in.
This will all take place in the beautiful surroundings of Mucklagh, Co, Wicklow.
The retreats is suitable if you've done a meditation course with us.
Please note: This retreat involves spending a lot of time out of doors. In order to participate you will need to be able to walk unaided at a slow pace for half an hour or so on uneven ground.
See Jo Goldsmid's webpage for more details on the kinds of workshops she will be running on this retreat.
