Five Day Retreat at Froyle Park – 14th to 18th January
This will be the first retreat in the UK since the winter of 2019. Rupert and the team are very excited to start the year with this special, intimate retreat at Froyle Park.
Retreats are a wonderful way to go more deeply into the non-dual understanding and deepen our connection to the community. Whether we are new to non-duality or have spent years exploring this understanding, our shared being shines when we come together.
On the first day, we begin with lunch followed by a welcome and guided meditation. After dinner, there will be a question-and-answer meeting. On each full day, there are two meetings: a silent and guided meditation in the morning and a conversation with Rupert in the afternoon that focuses on attendees’ questions. On the final day, we finish with a morning meeting followed by lunch.
There is ample free time between meetings and meals to explore Froyle Park and the surrounding area and to enjoy the company of fellow attendees. While this is not a silent retreat, resting in quiet contemplation is always available for those who wish to.
About Froyle Park: Surrounded by eighty acres of rolling countryside just outside of London, Froyle Park is a beautifully restored Jacobean manor house dating back to 1086 and is steeped in history. The manor has many traditional period features including oversized fireplaces, which will be lit for our group, providing a cosy atmosphere. The rooms are luxurious and there is ample space for attendees to gather in smaller groups and gardens and hiking trails to explore between meetings. Learn more about Froyle Park here.
COVID-19 safety protocols: Froyle Park and the team will take all necessary and recommended precautions for the safety of guests. Out of respect for fellow attendees we request that everyone attending the retreat take a lateral flow test before arriving at the venue. Tests are free online here. Niya will post updates on the COVID-19 regulations in the lead up to the event
