The Resting Point of the Year

Winter Solstice and the turn of the season. As the sun comes to a stop, we stop too. With yoga and nidra we’ll relax and gather poise, as the year poises. We’ll feel into the sensation of the still point, and the wisdom that can flow there, to have it with us in days to come. We will take a turn on the land around sunset and feel nature resting with us.

I was feeling very disconnected from myself. Today I feel so much more grounded and reconnected with the universe. I love that we all felt like a little family and the energy built up was truly empowering. Cannot say thank you enough. DH

A wonderful practice, and very well-timed for me. It’s had a significantly profound effect on me at a point in my life where I’m leaving my career and moving forward into new things. Angela, Tavistock

I have just been on another beautiful retreat day at Viveka Gardens. Fiona creates a safe space and guides the day in a sensitive, empowering way. I have come away restored, calm and ready to embrace new things. The food is also absolutely gorgeous. Thank you Fiona. Becca, Black Dog

I booked a quiet day at Viveka Gardens so I could prioritise myself and find time for peace and contemplation. Viveka is a special place: so restorative and peaceful. Fiona was warm and compassionate and made me feel so cared for. The yoga was nourishing, and the food was superb. I left feeling rested, loved and restored. I’ll definitely be booking again, and I’m keen to try more yoga nidra Emma, North Tawton

O sounding Song whose depth is sounding me,

O Memory of time, reminding me,

My Ground of Being, always grounding me,

Come, hidden Wisdom, come with all you bring,

Come to me now, disguised as everything.

from O Sapientia, Malcolm Guite
