This retreat for women will be a very different way to spend New Year. We will be looking at what you want from 2019. It will be a positive way to view the future. It will also include ways to be resilient to the ups and downs that life sends us. A variety of approaches will be offered to help you create your own personal vision for the way ahead. There will be practices using mindfulness, meditations, simple yoga, discussion, journaling, collage and positive thinking. Each session can stand alone and you can dip in and out of them if you so wish to have personal time for reflection. A spirit of enquiry and lightness is at the heart of all the sessions. Each person will be offered a short focusing session with the tutor, if desired, during the retreat.
