MINDFUL PICNIC at Cabanes Tombarels, Pont Du Loup

Come together for silent time and meditation out of doors in the beautiful Loup valley.

Cost: 14 euros. This includes three hours of mindful guidance from 12h to 13h and from 16h to18h, as well as tea and cake ! Bring your own lunchtime picnic to eat mindfully in the gap.

Join us for this opportunity to meditate, read, journal, relax and “BE” ! A day with phones off and companionship without the chat. If you are a mindfulness graduate or meditator of any kind, this is a chance for a day of extended practice. There will be guided sitting and walking meditations to start and finsih and a section of solo self-guided practice too.

After the silence we will come together for tea and sharing. We will finish about 18h

You may like to bring poetry to read, a journal for mindful writing, or your own recorded meditations to follow with earphones for the self-guided section.

This is a lovely way to refresh your practice and meet up with Mindfulness classmates.

Bring a cushion to sit on, a picnic, water, bathing suit, towel, suncreen, mosie spray, blanket, smiles, even a yoga mat….You can put your picnic in the fridge and make tea or coffee in the outside kitchen.

I have loungers and extra cushions so for the middle of the afternoon you can find a corner of the garden that appeals and make your own meditation space. Just you, yourself and nature with the silent support of the rest of us. There is shade under the trees and some may choose to stroll 15 mins to the river for a swim. There is also a deep cool pool for a fresh dip under the bamboo. On cooler days I can show you the start of the Chemin du Paradis for a lovely walk up towards Gourdon.
