Weekend Meditation Retreat UK

This listing has one of the 10 most popular offers available in the United Kingdom

This is an intense introduction to Caroline’s work and philosophy and gives a deep insight into the subjective nature of the self, through which you experience all of life. You will look at the creation of that self and the first, formative years, when the blueprint for each person is laid down, based on family, culture, experiences, and even energetic and physical body types. As you learn to see the ‘inner child’ with eyes of love, conflict falls away and compassion is glimpsed as the foundation for self-love. Only then can you shift your total perspective from the individual to the whole, experiencing the peace of the one movement of life. This peace brings a profound awakening of the truth that is ever-present beyond time and the movement of the brain. It is this awareness of self-love and universal peace which the individual takes back into the world at the end of Retreat 1.

The accommodation is in an old vicarage full of character with spacious rooms, high ceilings, and windows overlooking the extensive gardens. Each person has their own room. The group work takes place in the more modern, light-filled extension, where you also share your vegetarian meals together. The atmosphere is one of peace, tranquility, and presence. Caroline Bliss will disclose the exact venue upon booking.

Program

During the two days, you will have a chance to take a break from the demands of life and gently delve into your deepest self. Looking at your story with eyes of compassion frees you from inner judgment. Everyone will experience traumas or difficulties in life which are hard to feel or digest, and you carry unconscious beliefs about yourselves and life passed down from family or peers. These need to be explored and unpicked so that you can free the emotion, and move through to a deep state of acceptance and peace.

Working with compassionate awareness eventually allows you to fully embrace all aspects of yourself and your past, bringing a profound sense of presence. Out of this presence arises the energy which unifies all beings: Love. You are this love, and immersing yourself in this awakens your life’s purpose and brings you in line with the wonder of each moment. This short first retreat introducing people to the work particularly explores the early years when the initial sense of self is created.

Although it is deep work, participants are brought to a profound state of peace during the last day and are given practical tools for re-entering their lives with more awareness and love. The group will be small so that everyone can have appropriate attention, with time and space to evolve. The timetable starts at 5 p.m. on Friday and finishes at 4 p.m. on Sunday.
