My body is like a mountain.
My breath is like the wind.
And my mind is like the ocean.

During this time of year, there can be a lot of distraction and busyness; this evening will give you the chance to step back from this and take a breather. Through this evening Zen, you will give yourself the opportunity to sit in stillness and peace.

Mindspace’s new retreat venue in South Staffordshire is located with Baggeridge Park, a country park and nature reserve, a perfect location for such a retreat.

Format

Each session of mindful meditation lasts for one hour and follows this format.
