Dancing Mindfulness Weekend August 19th-21st
Based at The Old Red Lion in Castle Acre. Arriving Friday evening (5pm) – departing Sunday lunchtime (workshop ends 1pm, leaving you plenty of time to travel).
Accommodation included: first come first served options including en-suite double rooms/twin rooms with shared bathroom/dormitory space with shared facilities.
Meals: breakfast is included as self-catering (food provided); lunches will be at a good local café and evening meals at The Ostrich pub (neither evening meals nor lunch are included: choices range from soup to pizza to a 2 or 3 course meal). Basic drinks and snacks are included during the day.
Cost of retreat: is somewhat dependant on your accommodation choice, ranging £220 to £120. You decide what you want to pay within this, according to your circumstances. In addition to the cost of the ‘retreat’/workshop, you might expect to spend around £50 for your meals, depending on your food choices (Friday evening, Saturday lunch and evening, Sunday lunchtime).
If you are local: if you want to participate without being residential the cost is £95-£70. This covers attendance Friday 5.30pm – 7.30pm, Saturday 9.30am- 3.30pm and 5.30pm -7.30pm, Sunday 9.30am-12.30pm. Again, you decide your own fee based on your current circumstances.
Residential or non-residential, please pay by bank transfer (details from Lindsay) or cheque by two weeks prior. Refunds are only 50% of the full amount, unless the weekend itself is cancelled.
You will have spaces between sessions (and two hours on Saturday afternoon) when you can rest, walk riverside and woodland footpaths in the area, visit the market town of Swaffham, or the heritage sites in Castle Acre: they are the Cluniac priory – visible for free, or by English Heritage entrance fee – and one of the best examples of a Norman castle settlement in the country, which is only two minutes walk from your accommodation. Or you can make use of the pub (please do not dance after drinking alcohol or taking non-prescribed drugs).
There is no Sunday class in Norwich in August. We begin again in September.
