Upcoming Retreats

Retreats at Fair Harvest

5-day mindfulness and nature retreat: 15th – 19th April 2024 @ Fair Harvest. Explore traditional and contemporary mindfulness through an ecological lens. Retreat weaves together mindfulness, universalist Ecodharma, meditations on nature, and practices derived from indigenous knowledge systems, expanding and enriching awareness of the natural world. Mindfulness is a practice for cultivating Refuge. Refuge is a capacity to feel stable, safe, and well, to cultivate calm, and to have a clear, engaged, ethical response to life. Our sense of Refuge grows as our mindfulness develops. It involves becoming increasingly attentive and familiar with what it is to be human and alive, learning how to be friendly and caring of our own and others’ experiences, and considering how we live in ways that support the Refuge of all beings, all lives and the health of the world. Learn mindfulness in connection with nature, fostering calm and peacefulness with our own nature and the natural world. Booking link 5-day mindfulness and nature retreat April 2024 at Fair Harvest

5-day metta meditation retreat: 7th – 11th October 2024 @ Fair Harvest. Mettā can be translated as “the ever-present possibility for friendship.” and is a natural extension of our mindfulness. Practice helps us find meaningful sources of love and kindness within our lives, enabling us to live with greater tenderness and goodwill. During this 5-day semi-silent retreat, we walk through the specific meditational stages that help recover our deep love and affection for life and living. A deeper friendship and friendliness with our own lives, others, society and planet Earth. Booking link 5-day Metta meditation retreat October 2024 at Fair Harvest
