What’s coming up?
Cycling Retreat: 14 – 16 June 2019
In June 2019, join Dr Alastair Jones of Cadence Leadership, and myself, for a weekend of journeying, both on and off the bicycle.
Alastair is a very experienced cyclist and will be leading some challenging Yorkshire rides, (expect hills), while I will be following in his wake, and encouraging reflection along the way.
The weekend will be both experiential and reflective, as we explore embodied spirituality. There are limited places available, and you will need to bring your own bike.
Dates: 14 – 16 June 2019
Venue: (based out of) Westwood Centre, Huddersfield
Cost: £140 (plus food)
Booking – contact Alastair directly.
Canoe Retreat: 27 – 30 September 2019
This September, join us as we take to the water on beautiful Loch Awe*, in Argyll, Scotland. Your days will be spent paddling the calm waters of the loch, and exploring the forests, and hills that shelter it, as well as the islands that sit in it’s midst.
You don’t need to be an expert canoeist, we’ve chosen the location because it’s both beautiful and not too challenging for those without much paddling experience.
The full cost of the retreat is £600.00, secure your place by paying a £100 deposit**.

You will need to make your own way to Argyll, but we’re happy to try and link people up if you want to share lifts etc.
*Weather permitting. If weather is particularly challenging we may move to a more sheltered location.
** Deposits are listed as non-refundable, but if you have to cancel, and we can sell your space to someone else, we will of course refund you.
I collect anonymous written feedback after my retreats, here are some of the things that people said in 2018:
“The weekend was life to me – time to reflect, time to share with others on ‘the journey’, time to laugh, time to be more serious.”
“I found the retreat refreshing and timely. Very welcome breathing space.”
“This was a great opportunity to learn about meditation and practice in a safe environment. Simon is a great teacher.”
“Simon used his wisdom and insight to gently guide us through the exercise of carefully and thoughtfully reflecting on our own experiences and worldviews – inviting us to consider what we carry with us.”
“A time to learn… and to think about developing your own practice in a relaxed and supportive environment.”
“The experience of the retreat will take me a long time to process. And I think that that is the sign of time really well spent.”
“Simon was friendly & welcoming & made everyone feel comfortable. I didn’t feel out of place coming from a non-faith background. The day as a whole was time well-spent on recharging my batteries, reconnecting with meditation and trying some new ideas and techniques.”
