Weekend Retreat Norfolk. Creating Change Through Compassion
June 23 - June 25to be confirmed call for details
Creating Change though Compassion
This is a Friday Night To Sunday lunchtime weekend retreat. We will be exploring in a small safe group how to bring about the changes I wish to see in myself and my life using the quality of compassion.
Often we have been taught early on in our lives to push through, to not make a fuss and to Just, “ Get on with it” Now these attitudes are sometimes useful when we need to get things done , however they can block us from really seeing and hearing the places in ourselves that are in need of attention, of care and encouragement. Over time this just put up with it attitude can become quite cruel and judgemental leaving us feeling like we are failures or that we are never going to be good enough or loved enough.
It can also see us settling for a life we do not really want, in jobs we no longer enjoy or relationships that do not match our needs or values.
This weekend is about exploring through discussion, art, silence, meditation and movement how we really feel and what we really want. Its also about learning to accept and embrace with compassion all the parts of the self that struggle, are afraid or do not feel welcome.
Of course we cannot solve these kinds of issues in a weekend. This is a taster, but we can begin to engage with a more compassionate less judgemental approach and this can only serve the self and ultimately the others in our lives. For as I judge myself less harshly, so too do I accept the inconsistencies in others around me.
Nobody has to do anything they do not feel comfortable doing on this weekend. We are together to have fun , to be curious and to enjoy our time in Norfolk. We will go down to the sea, there will be time for yourself and time to meet some interesting people, so do come on your own , you will be well looked after. The food is fabulous the rooms are comfortable and filed with love. The whole centre is a healing sanctuary.
