"Flow with whatever may happen, and let your mind be free: Stay centred by accepting whatever you are doing. This is the ultimate” ― Chuang-Tzu
I simply look forward to more, and I'm glad my daily practice is now pretty much secure. Feeling soothed - something about trusting, about not being alone. I'm finding this practice similar to Focusing, but with an extra, vital, ingredient - it feeds my soul (which has been VERY hungry). Thank you for your generosity and support throughout,
'This was a brilliant introduction to a silent retreat and came just at the right moment for me - seven weeks into the eight week mindfulness course. Extremely well -led and well -structured, the retreat day provided an oasis of calm and time to just be.'
The retreat was a very good experience if flowed seamlessly with a good balance of "sitting" and "movement". I felt vary secure in the calm safe space you both created by your quiet confidence and sensitivety to what was happening around you and your availability for conversation if required. THe atmosphere was very good indeed allowing me to simply let go and surrender to what was being offered.
I left inhabiting myself in a fresh nd very peaceful way.
