Mid-week retreat: 'Coming home' 

Mindfulness and gentle yoga retreat with a contemplative silent space 

March 24th-26th, 2021 at Glenthorne Quaker House and conferecne centre, Grasmere, LA22 9QH, The Lake District

When silence is practised safely, it can be powerful in that a deeper self- knowledge and healing can occur. 

                ''The inner is foundation of the outer

                  The still is master of the restless"



Through mindfulness and gentle yoga we will gently make our way back home to the self and enter a space of silence to allow for deeper contemplation and exploration of our inner world. 

This retreat is suitable for anyone who has practised some form of meditation and no yoga experience is necessary. 

Check in can be from 2 pm on October 28th, giving you time to settle in and enjoy the setting. You are also welcome to park up at Glenthorne before 2 pm and enjoy the scenery.
