A New Year Silent Retreat with Roz Robinson:
This year we are again offering you the opportunity to calm and restore yourself after the Christmas chaos, take a deep breath and prepare for the coming year with warmth and positivity. Roz will be facilitating a silent three days of guided meditation, reflective practice, gentle yoga and walks in the peaceful ambience of Gayles and the wonderful countryside around.
Take a step back from the celebratory mayhem and join us as we connect with the moment and look forward to the new year in an atmosphere of mutual respect and care, of gentleness and understanding that will allow you to nourish and replenish your mind, body and heart.
As always, there will be delicious vegetarian food and warming drinks and, on New Years’ Eve, weather permitting, we will be having a large bonfire to see out the old and welcome in the new.
Roz is offering her teaching on a donation-only basis and you will be given the opportunity to make a financial contribution at the end of the retreat (as a guide we suggest between £75 – £150). The cost of dormitory accommodation (including bed linen, towels & laundry), the food, refreshments and use of the facilities is £195 for the whole retreat (Saturday afternoon to Tuesday afternoon).
This retreat is open to everyone, however, please bear in mind that the walks will be up to two-and-a-half hours long over the South Downs. Please also remember that a retreat needs to be approached with a degree of care and respect, both for ourselves and for others, and we ask that you participate fully in the schedule. This creates a strong ‘container’ for the powerful transformative experience that being on retreat can be.
