I run a two day online retreat starting on the first Saturday of every month. Over the two days I introduce the four related positive emotion meditations with each one being followed by an hour where you can engage in some form of creative activity. This can range from creating a drawing through writing (eg. about a previous period of one's life) to a physical pracice such as dance etc.I have found that each type of meditation can enhance a particular aspect of our creativity which can then give us an immediate physical feedback of the wider effect of the practice on us.
The retreat runs over Saturday and Sunday, starting at around 11am with a brief introduction to the day by myself. This is then followed by a description of the first meditation of the day whih I then lead for the next half hour. The meditation is then immediately followed at around twelve oclock by retreatants coming offline and embarking on some creative activity for the following hour if they wish. Once the hour is up we then briefly reconvein for a few minutes and then again come offline for a further hour long break for lunch. This is suggested to be taken in as near to silence as one can manage. We reconvein at 2pm for the introduction to the afternoons mediation session which then follows on as before. Again once this session has concluded retreatants can embark on anoather hour or so of creative activity up until around 4pm.
We then briefly reconvein for about 30 minutes or so for an optional report back and a chance to show the results of our creative endeavours to the rest of the group if we wish. The following day repeats this format from our initial meeting up at 11am to our final reporting out and conclusion around 4:30 pm.
There is no charge for attending the retreat. However if you have appreciated doing it you might like to consider leaving a donation (20 pounds is suggested for the two days) via the donation section on the home page.
