Discovering Peace - Silent Retreat in North Devon

An invitation to step away... 

Amidst the hectic demands of daily life exists a vast ocean of peace - this retreat is a precious opportunity to immerse yourself in its depths and to discover the incredible support and guidance it offers. Space to take a breath. Time to discover and reconnect to your true, inherently peaceful, nature. Opportunity to give up relating to yourself as someone to be ‘fixed’ and instead, to reclaim yourself as the wise and conscious presence you truly are. 

Using a combination of silence, self-inquiry - which will involve some talking during the sessions, movement & meditation you'll begin to discover that peace was there all along, always, already available - that you were just looking in the wrong direction.

Places are limited to 12 participants and they will go very fast, so if you'd like to join me I recommend you apply as soon as possible. Retreat details below.
