Dissolving into …. Love …. Existence …. Pure Presence …. Infinity…………
If you’re looking for a retreat with less talk and teaching – just lots of group meditation (mostly silent) in our beautiful centre and in the surrounding stunning landscapes – then this is the retreat for you.
Each day we will meditate together at least a couple of times (morning and afternoon) for a mutually agreed rhythm of time (ie 20 mins silence, 5 mins walking, 20 mins silence etc), either in our Meditation Sanctuary or outside. This gives time to deepen your own individual meditation practices, with time in-between for time alone, walking the stunning coastal path and beaches, or quiet time within the retreat house.
You will have your own room (most with their own bathroom) and can delight in our famous homemade meals.
Maddie will also be available at times for confidential one-to-one sessions to support you with Compassionate Presence.
Our retreats have a neutral focus so can be open to those with any spiritual path (or none).
5 night Retreats with the option to stay 6 nights with Madeline Mayfield (previously Lynfield) founder of Heartspring
Prices start at £575 for the whole retreat depending on which room you have – see below.
Our spiritual retreats are only very small groups (6 or less).
You will have your own room (unless you want to share with someone you’ve come with).
All the food we serve is organic and homemade where possible and we use local produce, some of which we grow ourselves. We have a well renowned reputation for creating delicious plant based meals where our omnivorous guests don’t even miss meat or dairy! See our Reviews
There are organised group meditations during the day, yet still with plenty of space for time to yourself, to rest, or to explore the beautiful sea and coast here in Devon, or relaxation time with the other retreat guests. The retreat feels spacious, relaxed with no rushing or “have-to’s”.
Please note we do have neighbours and can not always guarantee a silent space, although generally it is very peaceful here.
