Summer Retreat 2020

The Earth is Our Great Body –
With Subhana Barzaghi and Julie Downard


Friday 10th – Friday 17 January 2020

In this retreat we will listen to the ancient wisdom within our own bodies and attune to the extraordinary inter-connectedness with the ‘Earth our Great Body’ with its wild intricate beauty, our precious source of everything.  

Through cultivating the practices of mindfulness, compassion and inquiry, we can heal and nourish ourselves, experience the freedom that is possible in each moment, and awaken our hearts to our place in this great web of life.  Giving ourselves to this deep inner work enables us to go forth in the world with generous open hands and minds, engaging with our world with love and clarity.

This retreat will be led by two much appreciated and respected teachers Subhana Barzarghi and Julie Downard.  It is ideal for both beginners and experienced practitioners.
