YOGA WEEKEND, 14th & 15th March 2020, Barmouth, Gwynedd, Wales.
Letting Be with Bright Awareness
WHAT TO EXPECT: This weekend will be a relaxed exploration of the most simple and immediate yoga meditation technique which opens up the yoga being state before us. This being state is difficult to speak about. But we can say that it is at the heart of joyous human flourishing, that it clarifies thought and feeling, and has practical and creative aspects. It entails a vast perspective from silence on any situation whatsoever, including that of our finding ourselves alive and kicking. The practice sessions will combine sitting meditation, simple yoga postures and breath disciplines. There will also be explanatory talks, Q & A, conviviality, and walks in the hills and along the sea-shore, weather permitting. The group will be small at five people. Ask us if in doubt as to suitability for you HERE.

ABOUT BARMOUTH: Barmouth, Abermaw in Welsh, is a small town situated at the mouth of the Mawddach river in South Gwynedd, Wales, and on the doorstep of eight hundred square miles of the Snowdonia National Park. It has a beautiful sandy beach and the hills are accessible for walking straight from the town. We are sure that walks in this amazing area will be a memorable part of your experience of the weekend.
