Mindfulness & Poetry

July 10 - July 13

| £245

Sharing -lowresThe poetry sessions will be part of a daily schedule that includes formal and informal practices of meditation, such as sitting, walking, working and eating meditation.

We can write a poem about anything! This is not a challenge but an encouragement that what we experience, both internally and externally, is worthy of writing about. The writing sessions on this retreat will be an opportunity to delve into a way of working that begins with mindfulness and meditation and is not separate from these practices. We want to encourage writing about the things that delight and give joy, and maybe even the things that are troublesome.

The practice of mindfulness allows the mind to be clearer and in a more receptive state to be open to what is happening to us. This can be a starting point for a poem which is really a means of affirming, through words, the insights of a moment.  Featuring visiting facilitators Pete Armstrong and Lauri Bower . Watch Pete talking about the retreat on this short video clip! .

Price £245. “Early Bird” Price £195 (for bookings before 31st June).  Book Now
