One-day Silent Retreat – Gathering in the Lights of Autumn to Help us Keep Rested, Our Hearts Warm and Our Minds Clear as we Prepare for Winter
ONE DAY SILENT RETREATS for those working in Health & Social Care – organised by the Kent Group of the Janki Foundation for Spirituality in Healthcare.
They provide an opportunity to spend time with yourself, to care for yourself, and to spiritually recharge. There is an hour’s talk with suggested guided practices/exercises followed by 3 and 1/2 hours of silence. You can walk in the beautiful Quiet View Gardens, spend time in the yurt, on the labyrinth, under the shelter, or reflecting in any of the meditation spaces. The time is yours. We will then come out of silence for the last half hour of the retreat day.
