Graham Mead Inner Sense
6-Day Residential Retreat
Monday 15th - Sunday 21st May 2023
Friday 8th - Thursday 14th September 2023
These retreats are powerfully transformative and rich with experiential practice as you will have 6 full days with very little distraction in which to explore the mind and body in an environment enormously conducive to such a process. People who have attended this retreat (some many times), have found it to be particularly valuable due to the sustained, deep attention that develops over the course of the 6 days as well as the close connection formed with fellow attendees. This allows ample time and safe space to process psychological and physical challenges and to experience clarity and gain momentum along their inner journey.
We delve into various aspects of inner work, the relationship to the body-mind and our contextual experience by using words, movement, breath work, sensing exercises with a partner and sustained attention practices. An enriching and expansive experience with opportunity to question, confront and explore principles and practicalities of living without the encumbrance of fear (thought).
A discovery of this nature can at times be challenging and both mentally and physically quite confronting. If you commit to staying and bring a little courage, this retreat is bound to pay long term dividends. You do not need prior experience to join.
