How much silence do we truly have in our lives? Our silent day retreat allows us to rest from the busyness in our everyday lives. Silence gives our minds and bodies a chance to recuperate and settle. We can take away the worrying about what to say and how to say it and enjoy the peace that this can bring.

We will share a variety of practices throughout the day, with Mindfulness & Qi Gong, plus a deep relaxation Yoga Nidra. We'll also have a foraging session where we'll be exploring the hedgerows for some Autumn delights, and will learn about edible plants and their medicinal properties, to support our health and wellbeing.

Susie will be your facilitator for the day, with Carys providing the foraging session.

A vegetarian lunch will be provided, alongside tea, coffee and snacks. Some dietary requirements can be catered for - but please inquire prior to booking.

The cost of the day is £80. For concessions (those in receipt of their pension, on lower incomes and students) this price is £64. Our two reduced rate spaces will be priced at £50 for this event.

Our day will be held on Sunday 27th October from 10.30am-4pm. You can arrive from 10am to get a cuppa and get settled before we start. We will talk at the beginning and end of the day, participants will practice silence in-between these times.

Yoga mats, meditation cushions and chairs can be provided. Please bring your own blanket for additional comfort, and bring along thicker socks or slippers as we will have our shoes off. People often find a notebook helpful, for personal journaling throughout the day.

Please feel free to email me with any questions -

The retreat is taking place in Trossachs Tryst, Callander.
