The course fee includes the cost of all meals, (breakfast, lunch and dinner). All meals served throughout this event will be vegan – and delicious! If you would like the gluten free meal option please indicate this at the time booking (there is a small additional surcharge associated with this). Please note that we are unable to cater for any special dietary requirements other than these.

Timetable

The retreat timetable is yet to be finalised at this stage, however the weekend will begin with dinner and an introduction on Friday evening. The first retreat session on Saturday and Sunday will be after breakfast (most likely at 9am) with the final retreat session on Saturday likely ending at 9pm. The weekend will come to an end with lunch on Sunday. The final retreat timetable will be confirmed in your formal confirmation letter 1-2 weeks prior to the event.

The meditation sessions will generally be 1 hour long with time in-between sessions for relaxing and exploring. People will be seated in chairs during meditation sessions.
