Meditation as a Way of Being

Free Spirit event with Chris Whiteside
Tuesday 28, 11 am – Thursday 30 March, 1pm



A mid-week retreat, which has been specially developed for the over-50s.

Meditation is a wise and skilful way of coming to understand and relate to all of our our experiences with awareness and presence.

It introduces us to a way of “being” rather than “doing” which can bring a profound sense of wellness and a surprising acceptance as we face the challenges of life at any age.

In this retreat we will use simple meditation methods and contemplations to deepen our appreciation of our later years as a time to reflect and find meaning, to express love and forgiveness and to enjoy and complete life well.

“I benefited from the silence, energising beauty of the environment and the views. Thank you” (Angie)
