We are now able to offer you a new retreat experience we’ve been working on, which will be hosted at a fantastic venue in the nature rich Scottish town of Callander.

This event presents a wonderful opportunity to learn and directly experience mindfulness practices, consolidate your already established practice and deepen wisdom and understanding from which we can all learn, grow and be nourished.
