Covid has stopped us exploring compassion this Autumn in the Scarborough, London and Holy Island courses and retreat. But following the huge success of this summer's virtual retreat, Alistair, Jenny and Daniel are holding a long-weekend of online compassion practice and open-heartedness.
Gentle stretching, breathing, self-shiatsu and the Tibetan practice of tonglen will all create a space for us to explore our scrunchy hearts and open them up as we deal with this post-Lockdown world.
Alistair will be drawing on the wisdom of the pithy lojong slogans of the Tibetan heart tradition.
Two days of stillness, embodied compassion practice, gentle yoga and shiatsu. All contained in the Mindsprings community Zoom Room

Many Holy Island old-timers would expect to see Kirsty on the virtual island but she has (wisely perhaps) decided that she'd rather be out in the fresh air than teaching online! She will, of course, be guiding us when the Island re-opens.
So for the online course, Daniel has kindly agreed to stand in for Kirsty teaching yoga, while Jenny and Alistair provide the shiatsu and meditation respectively.
We have a welcoming circle and sit on Friday evening at 7.30pm.
Then on Saturday and Sunday:
7am- 8am: Early morning yoga + silent sit
8am-9am: Breakfast break
9am- 1pm: Meditation, shiatsu, teaching
1pm - 3pm: Lunch self-practice, rest
3pm - 4pm: Pranayama
4pm-6pm: Meditation, shiatsu, teaching
6pm -7pm Supper time
7pm-8pm: Sitting practice
