This day will be an opportunity for listening, reflecting and practising supported by an atmosphere of sustained silence, as well as a time for questions.

There will be an opportunity on the day to make a donation to Sharon, who is offering this retreat at no charge, in the Buddhist tradition of dana – which is how we can keep the cost low.
