Elena, who teaches our Mindfulness courses in Venice, and I are on our way to Holy Isle for a retreat with Lama Yeshe. Holy Isle is a wonderful place for a retreat as it is filled with nature and surrounded by the sea. We hold our retreats for the MSc here each May and June (for more info on the MSc in Mindfulness Based Approaches: http://www.mindfulnessassociation.net/Masters.aspx )
There are wild Tsoay sheep, goats and Eriskay ponies here and sometimes, if we are lucky, we see seals, dolphins and otters.
Our annual retreat with Choden and Angie will be on Holy Isle next year. If you have a chance to visit, even for a day, when the sun shines, it is one of the best places in the world (In my opinion!). For more information on Holy Isle: www.holyisland.org/
