I’ll be there from 8:30am to set up and the mini-retreat will begin at 9am.
The venue is Young Enterprise Scotland and directions to the venue will be given by email prior to the retreat.
The retreat will take place indoors and outdoors – all depending on the weather and what best suits the practices. The lovely venue has central heating and is nice and cosy if it’s cold or wet out. They also have a fantastic area outside which is covered if warm but raining. We’ll certainly try to do the mindful movements - Qi Gong and walking - outdoors at least …weather permitting!
If this event is sold out but you would like to be added to the reserve list, please email - firstname.lastname@example.org
