The Theme

With meditation as the focus the invitation of this retreat is to slow down and gently turn towards your own present-moment experience with curiosity and kindness.

In doing so there becomes the potential to welcome in and embrace everything just as it is; that which is comfortable or uncomfortable, our tender parts and our shadows, our humanity and our divinity.

It is through meeting ourselves in this way that allows us to fall deeper and deeper into the peace and stillness of our being.

About The Venue

Eden Rise is managed by the Network of Wellbeing charity and consists of two converted barns in the lovely Devon countryside located a few miles outside of Totnes.

As well as the studio, dining area and accommodation there is a sauna and 7 acres of land with a labyrinth which you are welcome to wander through.

The building runs on solar and green energy suppliers, provides fresh filtered water from an onsite borehole, has underfloor heating throughout and uses sustainable and eco-products.
