Event Details

5-day mindfulness and nature

semi-silent retreat

24th – 28th April 2023 @ Fair Harvest Permaculture farm

Join Ian Hackett of Tig-Le House for this semi-silent retreat exploring the foundations of traditional and contemporary mindfulness through an ecological lens. Each one of us has so much knowledge of earth and nature, it is inherent human knowing. Immerse yourself in mindfulness and meditative training and practices that encourage a deep remembering of our sacred place and relationship within the body of nature. Ian has over 33 years’ experience in bushland regeneration, Landcare and conservation, along with many years of mindfulness and meditative training and practice in both formal Buddhist and Universalist Dharma settings.

Retreat includes a mix of compulsory and optional classes along with time for rest and respite, engagement in simple creative activities, and mindful walking on country. Semi-silent involves consciously putting down sources of over stimulation whilst remaining connected to people and place.

  • Stay off-site at alternative accommodation or your own place of residence.
