Course outline

Find the way back to a joyful mind on Holy Isle

Alistair has been teaching on Holy Island off the coast of Arran in Scotland for 20 years this summer. And to celebrate Mindsprings is holding a sort of celebration of meditation and the Island together.

For our Summer retreat we are exploring Alistair's foundational practice Beingfulness (see below for more details of what this is) with a strong emphasis on practising outside in amongst the beauties of this unique Scottish holy place.

This retreat is ideal for beginners or folk who want to refresh their practice. We'll be mixing some instruction in the Peace Hall with practices sessions in the bountiful gardens around the centre, down by the waters edge or in amidst the wild ponies and sheep that wander the Isle.

With the emphasis on reconnecting to joy in our bodies, senses, emotions and minds, this is a unique chance to practice in a magical spot with wonderful, friendly folk.

You can find out more about Beingfulness, make inquiries and register your place on the retreat through Alistair's Mindsprings website
