stephen coanEach day is a journey; the journey itself is home’ wrote Basho, the famous seventeenth century Japanese poet and travel writer. Yet how often do we find ourselves dwelling on the past or, alternatively, travelling through life with our attention firmly projected into the future, ignoring or avoiding the present moment? Supported by a programme of sitting and walking meditation, come on a journey knowing exactly where you are, moment to moment, and thus discover your true home. There will also be time to enjoy the beautiful grounds and surroundings of the Centre. Please note that apart from an introductory talk and a discussion period, the retreat will be held in Noble Silence.
