Finding Stillness Retreat
‘Be still and know’…
Find an inner peace and freedom to stay centred and true to yourself, whatever life throws your way.
Go placidly amid the noise and haste, remember what peace there may be in silence…… Speak your truth quietly and clearly, and listen to others.
Max Erhmann, Desiderata.
This retreat is for you if you want to find a place of calm within you that helps you stay less reactive, more on top of your choices in life
You may already have done some work, perhaps on a Crossroads Retreat, to find who you are and what you want from life, but may be getting ‘hooked’ back into old habits or not quite retaining the space or freedom to be who you want to be.
On this retreat you will develop a practice to manage your time and energy so you are more ‘aware’ and ‘choiceful’ in life; living in a way that is right for you – the ‘Good Way’ in which you can respond to events and people, not react to them.
This is a chance to find real space in life,
to reconnect with what really matters to you and, with others on a similar journey, to build a personal practice to help you stay grounded in this.
You will develop the skill of being attentive to your experience – being able to notice to what is happening to you on the inside whilst life is happening on the outside. This will help you make clearer choices in matching your behaviour to your true priorities.
It will also teach you how to tune in much more subtly to your heart, body and soul as well as your mind. Accessing these different kinds of ‘knowing’ within you will lead to a much more aligned, joyful and fulfilling way of life.
What You Will Be Doing
You’ll create a personal ‘Good Way’ practice to help you nourish and maintain your stillness in daily life as you move forward. All in a secure and peaceful environment where you’ll be free to share as much or as little as you’d like.
- Explore: Reflect on the patterns at work in your life at present. How well are these serving you?
- Ground: Come into stillness using practices that ground you in ‘the here and now’, heightening your senses and inner awareness.
- Discern: what your heart and soul are saying to you as well as your head to help you find clarity, presence and peace of mind.
- Create: a personal ‘Good Way’ practice and rhythm of life that will strengthen your ability to live life on your terms going forwards.
You're In Safe Hands
This retreat is led only by our most experienced guides, who have spent years honing these practices.
They bring an emotional and spiritual depth to the work that has them able to tune in to each person’s unique character and nature. The process they use draws on spiritual traditions that are thousands of years old, as well as modern psychology and wellbeing.
The retreats run with a maximum ratio of 1 guide to 5 participants so everyone gets personal attention.
“The retreat surpassed expectations. I anticipated a nice couple of days re-connecting with my practice, but what I experienced was powerful and transformative, in a very supportive environment”
What You'll Get Out Of It
You will develop a personal stillness practice that will transform your level of personal awareness and resourcefulness.
You will be better able to discern when you are your ‘best self’ and when you are being pulled out of it.
You will be clearer in your own priorities and more able to say ‘no’ to things that you do not want in your life.
You will have more quality time, and love, to give to others, and to yourself.
“I feel re-calibrated and better able to move forward in my life. I feel reopened to the broader perspective, of Love, rather than isolated individuals, and found the head/heart/gut framing very useful”
