Journey to Source: A retreat day
This retreat day at Elmfield Courtyard is a journey to connect with the Source of your authentic self through an immersion in the deep underlying stillness found in nature and your body. Slowly, deeply and mindfully you will be guided to your core, where you will be invited to rest deeply. By entering into a space of receptive awareness in the stillness, clarity, creativity and possibility arise. This is a day to slow down, reconnect, recover, and re-emerge, away from busy everyday lives.
We will come together as a community of conscious enquirers to delve deep into the Other world--the world of imagination, embodied knowing, and conscious awareness.
