Autumn retreat - Opening the Heart

Join Simon on a retreat focused on opening up the heart. Life's challenges can harden our emotional defenses, leaving us joyless and leading us into conflict. In this retreat we will get back in touch with our heart energy, so that we meet the world with more peace and compassion for self and others.

With a combination of meditation,being in nature, and taking inspiration from Chenrezig, the buddha of limitless compassion, we will celebrate being alive, tuning-in to the innate loving kindness deep within us. See retreat outline.

The retreat will be quiet (no chatting, but time for questions and sharing practice experience in the classes). Expect to come away with new insights to bring into your daily life, and also feeling refreshed and a little blissed out! See more about the venue.

Simon will lead the retreat.  This retreat is designed for those with  some prior experience of meditation and mindfulness (check with me if you need to).

Whilst his teaching is secular, Simon has been a committed meditation practitioner in the Buddhist tradition for over 25  years, and was ordained as a lay teacher in 2017. He has been teaching  since 2011, with a focus on nature of mind.


Cost for the teaching, accommodation and great food is £325 £295 until midnight on 31st July.
