Winter Solstice Day Retreat

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

Just what I needed to rebirth, go inward and rest. The body and mind just wanted to feel contentment, without attaching anything to outcome. I got just this. PW-P

Yesterday was a truly wonderful experience. I feel an amazing sense of clarity today. I also slept for 13 hours solidly… Thank you so much. LC

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
