Wonderful Wiston 2014

Orla wrote a poem that she didn’t quite get around to reading on the retreat but wanted to share.

Wonderful Wiston

A warm welcome
Beds lovingly made
Gathas mindfully placed
Smiling faces

Still morning sun
Heart-stopping bells
Mouthfuls cherished
Cosmic drum sounds

Sitting like a sunflower
Walking as a river
A powerful energy
Breathing as one

Blue tits playing
Woodpecker snores
Majestic trees
A solstice rainbow fire

Hearts opening
Caring glances
Friendships made & renewed
Dana lovingly given

Compassion & wisdom
“Aha!” moments
A middle way?
Heartfelt gratitude

Surrendering to the flow
Letting go
Going deeper
Faith in the path

Home now
Lively children
Mindful bedtime
A practice renewed

And also that charity in Mozambique you were wondering about is IMAGINE Mozambique.

  1. Thanks Orla. Your poem summed up a lot of my experience – which was very rich and supportive. I came back renewed and invigorated in my practice.Thanks to everyone who generously gave their time and energy to putting on the retreat. Thank you.
