Course outline

Springtime on Holy Isle offers a great environment to renew our energies and awaken our potential. We can look again at our lives and let go of the habits that limit our freedom. This is easy to say yet hard to do. At least we can plant and look after the seeds of wisdom and compassion in our lives. This coming year will be wiser and kinder once we apply some effort, willpower and mindful attention.

The course will be practice and experience based. A structure will help us so we will use the five principles of emotional intelligence (self awareness, self mastery, compassion, motivation and social skills) to help us develop, "enlightened courage." This is the "skill-set" we can take away from this practical retreat. There will be walking meditation, some gentle daily physical exercises, self-compassion and a chance to explore the unique landscape of Holy Isle. 

There will be a day of silence in the middle of the retreat.
