Meditations on Compassion
Through opening our heart in meditation we can experience peace, bliss, and happiness, while also radically improving all the relationships in our life. Starting with ourself and gradually working outwards. This retreat will offer a step-by-step instruction on how to develop the mind of compassion using mindful meditation practices.

Take a break from the stress of modern life, experience inner peace, calm and stress relief on this unique Mindfulness and Meditation retreat.

Spending a weekend retreat practising Mindfulness and Meditation whilst enjoying the beauty of the Lake District in friendly, like-minded company will refresh, recharge and rejuvenate your body and mind.

The weekend will reveal a variety of Guided Mindfulness practices which we will engage in together and provide the opportunity to practice Mindful Walking in the surrounding countryside.
