Friday 1st February to Sunday 3rd February 2013.
The Retreat will provide personal space and time to consider the retreat theme: ‘Letting Go, Letting In’
Letting go, in order to let in
Releasing, in order to receive
Nature’s coded messages become clearer
The less we try to see.
We meet in the tradition of Vietnamese Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh, who now lives and practices in Plum Village Monastery in southern France.
We invite you to join us. The venue is Newbold House, Forres, Moray, a beautiful Victorian mansion in the north east of Scotland. The resident staff members come from different walks of life and share a common vision. They take pleasure in providing a loving and nurturing environment for their guests. For further details, see: http://www.newboldhouse.org/.
The retreat will run from 1700 hrs Friday to 1530 hrs Sunday. Further instructions – timetable, directions, preparation, etc – will follow nearer the time.
Please download the application form for costs. Note that we are pleased to offer a reduction of the Retreat costs for those on reduced income. Residential accommodation will be provided in Newbold House itself, or in nearby Parkmount House. All activities and meals will be in Newbold House. It will be possible for participants to be non-residential.
The retreat will give us the chance to practice together through a variety of formal and informal activities, drawing on the abundance of experience and wisdom within the group. If you have a particular practice, poem, song or any other ideas appropriate to the theme ‘Letting Go, Letting In‘, please let us know so that we might include them within the programme.
