What you'll do

After the initial welcoming coffee and introductions we will start our day with a yoga session on the lawn surrounded by the fells, now relaxed we will meet our gentle giants (our Clydesdale horses) and have a guided meditation with Katherine Beaumont and the horses. After a healthy lunch its our drawing workshop. Guided by local artist, illustrator and fellow farmer Jo McGrath you’ll learn and improve on your pencil sketches observing the horses in their natural environment, working towards a finished ‘memory’ that captures this very special day of mindful creativity amidst the serenity of the Cumbrian outdoors. You’ll work with the changing light and shadows as well as the moving horses and if it’s the landscape that captivates your time is yours to up sticks, find a quiet corner of the field or fell to let go and create with as much or as little of Jo’s guidance as you need.

Katherine

I fell in love with horses as a little girl. This was a time of innocence and happiness when I spent a lot of time wandering around the woods and on beaches, talking to my dog and any other creature that crossed my path. I feel that as children, we are a beautiful and whole and that life sometimes eats up slices of that beauty and innocence and happiness and vitality along with it. 15 years ago, I discovered the potent benefits of yoga and meditation and that is when I came full circle, to embrace my roots; my original adoration of nature. I have spent a lot time absorbed in my own methods in order to heal and flourish. I firmly believe that animals and nature, not only have the power to heal us, but that they are essential in order for us to live a life of self-assured tranquility and peace.

Where you'll be

The setting for our retreats is Whasdyke Farm – a traditional Lakeland fell farm. Both the field barn and cow byres are made from traditional Lakeland slate, and the byres are a reminder of by gone days when this farm would have had a small dairy herd. As the crow flies we are only one mile from Windermere village but as a small hill rises between we have a wonderful sense of seclusion surrounded by Lakeland hills.
