Le Coudray, Lémeré, 37120
When did you last look at the night sky with your full attention, wonder and curiosity? Mindful Stargazing has nothing to do with star maps, coordinates or science facts. Instead, it is the pure, immersive experience of looking up at the night sky with wide-eyed inquisitiveness and wonder.
This retreat 8-day course will combine a mixture of activities centred around mindfulness during the day and the night. Practices will include Zen Meditation, Yoga and Qigong based on the energy of the season and Mindful Stargazing at night under the beautiful dark skies of rural France.
