This was a lovely 4 days of yoga, Zen meditation and Zen Buddhist teachings given in a gentle, practical terms with quiet humour interspersed. Fushin and Rose made everything relevant to the realities of living in the 21st century. The food and accommodation was perfect and the setting idyllic. It was everything that I had hoped for and needed and more.

"Calming the mind"

A calm, quiet weekend spent in wonderful company, soaking in the teaching of Rose and Fushin. Their quest house and Zendo is in a beautiful, deafeningly silent location. Picture ever changing mountain vistas and flowers. Add a soundtrack of wind, birds and the beat of your heart. Hope to return in the future.
