The Gift Retreats – Mindfulness Retreats in North Devon
3 or 4 Night Residential Retreats - Currently Unavailable
Why not make a gift to yourself and your loved ones of a three or four day residential retreat in the beautiful surroundings of Tawstock Court and parkland in North Devon. How often do you really look after yourself for a few days, separating yourself from the frantic business of life and immersing yourself in the peace and tranquillity of ‘non-doing’?
‘A truly wonderful experience – it really was a ‘GIFT’ and no exaggeration to say my life is changed – in a good way!’
If you are interested in learning more about mindfulness and gaining additional practice before attending professional teacher training, then attending one of our 3 or 4 nights fully residential retreats in the beautiful North Devon countryside could be an ideal, and most enjoyable way of doing this. You could regard it as a very special holiday, for you and your loved ones! Attending one of our residential retreats is equally valid as a way of developing and deepening your learning, after qualification and a chance to gain a full year’s Continuing Professional Development (CPD), in one delightful way!
The Gift Retreats are skilfully facilitated by experienced teachers and trainers from The UK College of Mindfulness Meditation and The Devon School of Mindfulness.
We don’t think that going on a mindfulness retreat should require us to make any sacrifice in comforts, and in fact we offer completely the reverse with accommodation in a large and beautiful, historic country home with newly refurbished, individual, twin or double en-suite rooms, tasty and nutritious vegetarian food with vegan options, freshly cooked onsite by expert chefs – we even have a bar in the evening offering a little mindful drinking for those so inclined!!
We take great pride in being inclusive, offering to accommodate those with mobility challenges and helping them, as much as we possibly can to be able to participate. The retreats are led in a completely secular, non-religious way and we simply respect that each attendee may bring his or her own spirituality.
