3-Day Residential Retreat

MAY 20 – 23

The May 3-day retreat is the first of 2 retreats for this year. Retreats offer a depth of immersion that simply cannot be easily reproduced in a workshop. Consequently people experience deep change within them along with an unexpected relief, restfulness and replenishment of one’s being. Graham will guide you through a deep engagement with a variety of practices including self-inquiry, intensive breath work, qi gong and meditation as well as interactive sensory exercises with other participants, designed to enable the development of feeling perception in the body. These practical exercises, alongside targeted discourses enable deep understanding to emerge within a retreat.
