This week will combine training and reflection – interaction and quiet time. It offers a chance to learn and to open the heart in the beauty of the Scottish Highlands. We will introduce skills in communication, as well as meditation and some Buddhist principles. This retreat is open to all; no previous experience of Buddhism or meditation is expected.
