This retreat for anyone wishing to explore meditation and their inner world. You may want to inspire or re-inspire your meditation, or to benefit from new perspectives and approaches. Whatever your starting point, we take a relaxed approach, aiming to make meditation as enjoyable and enriching as possible. We also discover how to make meditation uniquely our own, seeking the right approach for ourselves at different times. In this way, meditation can become a real resource and a steady support in our lives.
Locana (Elizabeth English) currently teaches mindfulness at Cambridge University. Her approach to meditation draws on four decades of meditation practice, and integrates her training in Focusing, Nonviolent Communication, and Somatic Experiencing trauma therapy. It is also underpinned by Locana’s doctoral research into Sanskrit meditation texts (Vajrayogini, published Wisdom 2002), and the practice of Recollective Awareness. Her first ‘Gentle Guide to mindfulness meditation’ was published in 2022: Journeys to the Deep with a sequel due out shortly: Into the Flow (The books are available on Amazon or from the Dhanakosa Bookshop.) Locana also loves singing, and wild walks with her cocker spaniel, Cherub.
