Your weekend begins on Friday afternoon. It is a short (10-15 minute) stroll across a field from the farm to the retreat space. Our nearest neighbours are farm animals.
The venue is entirely off-grid; no electricity, no wifi. But being off-grid does not mean roughing it. Hot water for showering is provided by a gas boiler, there are an abundance of wood burning stoves (so no fear of being cold), and the camp is lit by a combination of solar and candle light.
"Purification, refinement, surrender - these are the practical steps on the path of yoga."~ sutra 2.1 Patanjalis yoga sutras
In the most simplified of terms this sutra can taken as: Practice, reflect in a mindful way and accept the things we cannot change (ie: let STUFF go!).
If you have any specific dietary requirements then please let me know in advance so they can be accommodated.
Of course it's up to you how you spend your time. Lounging on a hammock reading a book (bring your own or dip into the section of books I bring along), journaling, sipping a warm drink, chatting, resting in your hut or maybe enjoying the open air shower (a few brave retreaters have and reported that it was exhilarating experience).
A deposit of £100 is required to secure your place. Full payment is due 10 weeks before commencement of the retreat.*
