And I'm leading a weekend poetry and mindfulness retreat on the edge of the pretty little moorland town of Chagford, Devon.
NB THIS COURSE HAS NOW BEEN CHANGED TO 24 HOURS (SUNDAY ATTENDANCE ONLY IS A POSSIBILITY). UPDATES SOON: please contact Martin, as below.
WRITING THE BRIGHT MOMENT takes place in the purpose-built Barefoot Barn, perched at the top of a woodland garden with stunning views of the moor. We'll be spending the weekend of 11-13 May nourishing ourselves with silence, walking, writing, group discussions and some simple meditations, all designed to bring us back to this passing and precious moment, and our dwelling-place within it. We'll be working particularly with haiku and haibun – full guidance given.
If you need a deep retreat for the heart and the senses, I invite you to join us. The weekend costs have been kept very low, and accommodation is usually in shared rooms (some camping available). Food is delicious simple vegetarian fare, and help with washing up is part of the weekend's practice.
You don't need to be experienced in either writing or meditation; you'll be welcomed warmly whatever. We' ll start with supper on Friday May 11th (arriving after 5pm for 7pm start) and finish around 4pm on Sunday.
Please contact Martin Pitt by email: eaglehurst[at]talktalk.net for full info (flier and booking form) and to book - bookings close on 31st March.
