The Phoenix symbolises renewal and resurrection, so as we all start to awaken and stir from ‘The Great Pause’ what better time to brush off the cobwebs of isolation and come to country for a weekend of connection to yourself, other men and to nature.
The program includes Tantric Yoga, Yoga Nidra, Mindful Meditation Walks, Rituals and exploring the ‘Five Erotic Pillars’ of mindful self touch.
This retreat is limited to 20 men so everyone can can be comfortable. There will be plenty of space in our hall and shared spaces to maintain social distancing whilst enjoying social interaction. Some of the workshops on this retreat will be naked.
