Event Information

An intimate gathering, tucked away in the hills of the English countryside, steeped in the ancient stillness and beauty of the natural environment.

The invitation for this gathering is to give ourselves into the light of awakeness - to bring everything that arises in our experience. Even the tightest contractions, the darkest emotions, the most painful circumstances, can be doorways to liberation. When we have the courage to be fully present in the open awareness of the totality ourselves we stand at the edge of the known, and it is here that we may be graced with the courage to move beyond it, to give ourselves deeply to an authentic movement towards the unknown, falling into the Ground of Being - this is a vertical dive deep into the core of who we are and into the core of our shared reality.

This retreat is an opportunity to unravel what may stand in the way of us living consciously as our True Nature, to take a good honest look at what we may be running from, and to ask ourselves if we are willing to embrace the totality of life, just as it is. Held in the bowl of the divine feminine, Amoda Maa and Jeannie McGillivray invite you into the safety of retreat for a passionate and radically honest conversation, rooted in integrity. There will be time for Inquiry, Dialogue, Silent Sitting, and Guided Meditation.

Please note - this is a RESIDENTIAL event, but accommodation is additional to the cost of the event and you are required to make your own reservations, some meals are provided (although we can help you, please see details below).

Amoda Maa is a contemporary spiritual teacher and author. Her teaching arises out of direct experience of awakened presence and emanates the untamable fragrance of freedom whilst radically embracing the totality of the human experience. More info about Amoda Maa at

Jeannie McGillivray extends an invitation to deeply explore existence together, with innocence and authenticity, enabling us to move beyond conceptual limitations and belief into a truthful and direct experience of what we truly are and how we experience the world. She is also the co-founder of Meeting Truth. More info about Jeannie at
