This 5-day retreat brings an opportunity for rest, reflection and renewal at the year’s end after the busyness of Christmas. It aims to provide a safe, supportive and nourishing environment, with space to form a deeper connection with yourself, with others and with nature. The retreat is open to anyone who has some experience of 1-1 Focusing. There will time each day for: · 1-1 Focusing sessions · Input and discussion on Focusing practice · Silent group walks · Group meditation · Early morning qigong (or personal practice) · Group sharing · Free time for resting, walking, etc. The retreat will be held partly in silence, but there is also time to interact socially with the group. Extra group activities such as Dartmoor walks, dance/movement, massage, poetry sharing, etc, also tend to arise on the retreats. We will also mark the turning of the year with a ritual or celebration. The retreat is structured around a daily schedule which is provided as a framework and support, but there is no obligation or pressure to attend every session and participants are encouraged to attune to and respect their own individual process and needs, which can include spending time alone. The retreat starts with supper on the evening of the first day, and ends after lunch on the last day. We bring and cook our own food – each person generally brings ingredients for one meal (lunch or supper) for the group and gets help to cook it – this supports a sense of group bonding and grounding, as well as keeping the cost of the retreat down. The total cost of food is shared equally by everyone in the group. The venue: Bala Brook Retreat Centre is a wonderful, comfortable, spacious venue, set right next to the Bala Brook in a beautiful, quiet location near South Brent on the edge of Dartmoor (20 minutes drive from Totnes and a 2 hour drive from Bristol). See www.balabrook.org.uk for further information about the centre. Costs & bookings: There will be a maximum of 14 places available on the retreat. Accommodation is in single or double rooms, many are en-suite. The cost of the retreat is £320 (£260 concs), not including food (the food cost usually works out at around £8 per day per person). Contact Gordon for a booking form if you would like to come on a retreat. I will need to receive a completed form (by email or post) plus a deposit of £100 to reserve a place. The balance of the retreat fee is payable 4-6 weeks before the start of the retreat.
