Turning Towards: Mindfulness Retreat


Turning Towards

A Residential Retreat, Wiston Lodge June 8th to 11th.

At Wiston Lodge, Nr Biggar, South Lanarkshire, ML12 6HT


You are warmly invited to join us at our summer retreat from June 8th to June 11th 2017, guided by Dharmacharya Dene Donalds in the tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh. We will gather as a Sangha of all ages to support our practice of Mindfulness. Together we will be seeking positive ways of living in these times of political uncertainty, upheaval, and climate change.

How can we make a difference to our lives in the world we are living in, in the here and the now?  Together we can create a living community of inter-being finding ways to live together with compassion and insight. To explore how we can contribute to a sustainable and peaceful world.

We can make a difference to ourselves, our lives, and the world we live in.

We will practice together to:-

  • Find peace and energy within ourselves
  • Learn to listen deeply
  • Practice guided, working and walking meditations
  • Touch the earth,
  • Learn how to form Sanghas and communities of resistance

Wiston Lodge with its extensive grounds and natural environment, merging upwards to Tinto Hill, gives us the opportunity to deepen our awareness of Interbeing with Nature and with one another. The doors are wide open for all our friends and we hope that everyone young and old will feel nourished and enriched through the explorations of the practice.
