Long Summer Relaxation and Recuperation: August 25-28th 2023
Step in to late summer, which starts on the 21st of August. Find how the relaxed pace of long summer differs from that of high energy busy early to mid summer. Enjoy techniques, discussions and focused time to tap in to your body, mind and soul to start, slowing down the pace.
We will focus on ways to boost your immune system, as in Traditional Chinese Medicine the organ of long summer is the spleen. The sound of summer is song, so bring your guitar, your drums and your voice to play and sing around the camp fire. Enjoy the vibrant yellow of scented flowers and get yourself in to the vibe of the long summer season, slowing down, just a little. Once you have booked your place on the base retreat, you can book additional activities such as relaxing holistic therapies and adventure activities. Really tailor your weekend, to what you truly enjoy doing. Enjoy watching the long summer unfold, as you sit back, a little, and be yourself.
