We're offering the same care, values and community support that we're known for - via our Retreats at Home.
Our online retreats are firmly grounded in the principles of mindfulness, meditation, community and nature connection that we’ve been fostering for the last 40 years.
This 2-day Retreat at Home can help support and nourish you as you face new challenges and uncertainties.This mindfulness retreat offers support from experienced meditators. You'll be held in supportive community, connecting with each other and sharing experiences.
There will be a maximum of 15 people on this retreat with opportunities for smaller group sharing.
The retreat will take place online using the platform Zoom (see further information below to ensure you have the minimum tech requirements). We'll send out guidance for using Zoom when you book and a guide to getting the best out of your Retreat at Home.
We will be using the online application Zoom to meditate with each other.
To use Zoom you will need a computer or a phone with a speaker and camera. Full instructions will be sent with each Online Meditation Alert or you can access them here.
You can also download the Zoom app here to familiarise yourself with it and make sure it meets your system requirements.
To get the most out of this retreat you will need a room in your home where you will not be distracted by other people and which can serve as a confidential space.
To join you will need to be fully available for the duration of the retreat (this helps create a greater sense of group coherence with less distraction for your fellow retreatants). This is a small group retreat with the expectation that you will attend from the start to the end.
The weekend retreat will run from 5.30pm on Friday evening to 5.15pm on Sunday evening. Click here for the schedule,
At the weekend I attended the 1 day retreat at home. It was a beautiful experience and Barry held the group with loving care. It was on zoom but it didn’t stop me feeling connected to others in the group. I intend to do this retreat again, as well as one at Sharpham soon. Thanks Sharpham
I have Just completed the Sharpham on-line retreat led by Will and Miquel - such an amazing experience and strong sense of community amongst everyone was present. I would strongly recommend this weekend ...
