Wake Up UK organized a retreat for facilitators from local Wake Up communities last month at Binley Farm, SW England. Here are some reflections by Jasmine, one of the organizers:
“I feel inspired to share briefly about our retreat for facilitators which took place at the beginning of April. This turned out to be a beautiful time where we felt able to ease into each others company – relaxing, hanging out and playing together, as well as spending time to reflect on our aspirations of sharing the practice.
Binley Farm offered an amazing place to simply be, practice and nourish ourselves in the spring air and beauty of the countryside. The experience included: deep relaxation outside in the sun, a short hike and picnic with amazing views followed by an impromtu music performance and an inspiring workshop to share our experiences of offering the practice and explore how to be ourselves whilst facilitating.
We aspire to offer more facilitators retreats in the future, please be in touch if you are an aspiring facilitator and wish to join :).”
