Course details

This work retreat is organised by Sanghaseva and DANCE and hosted at CAT. It offers us the opportunity to nourish and express our care for life on Earth and our wish for a more sustainable world. A chance to combine working outdoors with silent reflection, meditation and listening practice.

The retreat is open to all, those new to meditation as well as those with experience; meditation instructions will be given. Also the work will be arranged so people with a range of abilities will have a place on this retreat.

We imagine we will work primarily in the gardens but there are possibilities to work in other areas, depending on needs of the community and skills of the participants.
To enable the cultivation of greater awareness in a daily life setting, the working days' activities will be framed by periods of meditation and contemplation, and parts of each day will be spent in silence. Evening reflections and guided interactive exercises will aim to deepen our connection to all things, including our inner life.

There will be an opportunity for further group sharing and exploration on the last morning.

The retreat will end after lunch on the last day.

We are very happy to be returning to the Centre for Alternative Technology (CAT). CAT is Europe's leading centre for environmental inspiration and courses, it offers practical solutions on all aspects of sustainable living: environmental building, eco-sanitation, woodland management, renewable energy, energy efficiency and organic vegetable growing.

We will stay in one of CAT's two Eco Cabins and work onsite to support the community in whatever way is most helpful. Vegetarian lunch and dinner will be provided by CAT's vegetarian wholefood restaurant, while breakfast will be self-catering.

The full cost of the retreat is £230, we will again offer an early bird discount; if you pay in full before 1 March 2017 the retreat will cost £212.

This covers accommodation in the Eco Cabins, all food from the first evening meal (of the day the retreat starts) to the last lunchtime (of the day the retreat finishes), and travel expenses for the retreat facilitator/teacher.

The retreat will be facilitated by Gareth Fysh-Foskett and Julia Wallond.

£230 or Early bird by 1 March 2017 £212.
