Announcing dates of Silent Retreats

We will again host our ‘Invitation to Silence’ weekend retreats in 2019, one in Spring and one in Summer. Both weekends coincide with the new moon, when the body cycle naturally seeks to go inward.

May 3-5th, 2019

August 29-31st, 2019

We refer to these weekends as gentle as they are both a welcoming space for those quite accustomed with the spiritual practice of silence, and the complete novice. There are times for sitting together, and lots of space for the self to wander in the garden or the fields, read, swim, practice stretching or even getting a massage. The practice is supported with delicious local and organic vegetarian and vegan food and with inspiring liturgies from many traditions.

Accommodation is in either a tent or hammock YOU bring, or rent one of ours. There is the option on each retreat for one lucky person to stay in the double bed inside the Straw Bale guest room. For those who came last years loved sleeping so close to nature and under the amazing star filled sky!

Lyrical feedback offered from Tina, a Dutch participant last year…

Hello Emma,

I ‘ll try to give some feedback starting with MoO as the spot. It felt like heaven
Hospitality. Felt like coming home
Food. Delicious
Meditation. Interesting, deepening
Highlights. The being alone and the love I felt being there
I certainly will come again to MoO
I would recommend it to anyone
What I would say about this silence retreat is that it make you discover there is a extra dimension in silence that compleets us.

Thank you soo much Emma.
