Journeys to the Deep:
Meditation Retreat

For anyone wishing to explore meditation and their inner world. You may want to inspire or re-inspire your meditation, or to learn meditation from scratch. We take a relaxed approach, aiming to make meditation as enjoyable and enriching as possible. Using our creativity (writing, painting, nature), we make meditation uniquely our own.

Mindfulness for Better Sleep

Mindfulness has much to offer those who wish for more rest, and a better quality of sleep. A four-week course will cover the essentials of sleep hygiene. It introduces mindful practices that can help you towards healthy and refreshing sleep at night and more energy during the day. Following the course and its practices, I would hope you make significant progress in tackling problems, such as: feeling ‘tired but wired’ at night; struggling to get to sleep, or stay asleep; waking up feeling tired and drained; not waking up or getting up when you wish; feeling tired during the day.

If you unexpectedly miss a session (and we know that ‘life happens’), no worries. You are able to reschedule free of charge. If you miss the week altogether, then you are invited to defer your attendance on the missed session to a future course. Simply write to Elizabeth and request a ‘missed session’ voucher for a future course. We will need to charge a small admin fee of £10 for missed sessions.

If you change your mind after 7 days of booking, we would be happy offer you an exchange. You can transfer to another course, paying only a £10 administration free to do so.

(If the dates for future courses are not yet available, feel free to get in touch, or wait for the dates to be advertised above.)
