Refreshing practices and discovering outdoors as a tool
I feel so different after so much practice and movement outside in this beautiful place

Enlightening practices and and wonderful to be out in the woods. I couldn’t believe the amount of stars at night.
Beneficial and nourishing

Grounding, supported, refreshing and uplifted weekend. Felt held throughout
Greatly enjoyed and benefitted from the integration of formal practice with movement and the natural world.
I felt connection with my environment on a whole other level I didn’t know possible. I was able to sit with anxiety for the first time ever.
I loved the time spent outdoors and having the opportunity to slow down and appreciate all the little things.
Qigong was very enjoyable add felt like a wonderful complement to sitting

This is the introduction to our Level 1: Being Present Mindfulness Training taught over four weekends. It can be taken in isolation as a retreat or a refresher for those already with a Mindfulness practice or is a perfect way to begin a Mindfulness journey. This course has a nature theme – as we can immerse ourselves in the beautiful surroundings of Samye Ling. We will take opportunities to practice outside and also do some mindful walking and movement outside with forest bathing.
This is an opportunity to not only explore the benefits of mindfulness but also of immersion in nature. We cannot help but notice how nature teaches us to be mindful. After the first weekend you can choose to continue to complete the course over three further three weekends.
