Following the golden thread

Starts 2 Apr 2020


Deepening our spiritual practice through writing and meditation

‘There’s a thread you follow. It goes among
things that change. But it doesn’t change . . . ‘
William Stafford

This retreat is a rare and exciting opportunity to blend our mindfulness and meditation practice with a wider exploration of our spiritual lives – all amongst the beautiful natural world of Sudarshanaloka.

Over three days we’ll combine our meditation with a series of stimulating (and sometimes ingenious) exercises, most of them involving writing in some form. They’ll gently open up new directions in which fresh and insightful personal discoveries may unfold. You’ll develop a deeper appreciation of both yourself and nature.

You don’t have to be an experienced meditator, nor a clever writer. All you’ll need is an open mind and heart, and your pen and paper. There’ll be opportunities to read our work aloud to the rest of us – but that will be entirely voluntary.

'Nothing you do can stop times unfolding
You don't ever let go of the thread'
