Mindfully Exploring Drawing and Poetry in Helmsley Walled Garden

Here is a lovely opportunity to give yourself a treat and enjoy the beauty of Helmsley Walled Garden (YO62 5AH) from a different perspective, exploring it through drawing or poetry. Whether you are experienced in these areas of drawing, poetry and mindfulness, or brand new and slightly terrified, this retreat has a lot to offer you.
This 2-day non-residential retreat offers an opportunity to experience drawing and poetry supported by mindfulness.  Please note you can book for either one day (Saturday) or for both days.

Day Retreat Overview
Helmsley Walled Garden provides a superb setting for exploring our relationship with nature through words and images. On each of these two days we can spend time discovering a new way of creating, whether this is through drawing or poetry, by using mindfulness as the foundation.
Each day includes gentle mindfulness practices that will enable and support your drawing or writing, as well as refreshments and lunch and entry to the Walled Garden.
This provides an ideal opportunity to:
  • Leave behind the hustle and bustle of daily life and set aside some time to refresh yourself through the creative pursuits of drawing and/or poetry.
  • Tune into what feels right for you 
  • Explore the benefits of mindfulness

Who Should Attend
This event is suitable for anyone who is interested in combining the creative practices of drawing and/or poetry with mindfulness. Tuition will be provided in mindfulness as well as the craft skills of drawing and poetry. Each day will happily accommodate those who practice regularly as well as those new to drawing, poetry or mindfulness. Beginners and the terrified are all welcome!

The Venue
This event will be held at Helmsley Walled Garden, Cleveland Way, Helmsley, York YO62 5AH.
