Experiment with Light Retreat: deepening the practice

We shall be reflecting on and sharing our experience of an extended Experiment in retreat over the whole weekend. A simple art technique will enable us to physically process both our experience in Experiment and resonances from Swarthmoor Hall’s Quaker heritage and peaceful gardens. We shall then reflect further on the emergence of deeper meanings in the work we produce and share together. No previous art experience is required: materials, assistance and support will be provided.

With the steeper climbs ranging between 20% and 35% you will certainly have to work for your end of ride meal (which is included by the way). With views over the Duddon Valley, Coniston Water and Windermere it is sure to be a scenic ride.
