November 3rd - 5th 2023

The weekend includes a warm welcome, group tuition, en suite private rooms and full board with delicious vegetarian food (with morning and afternoon hot drinks breaks and snacks) all for £399, or non-residential for a reduced fee.

This is a gentle introduction to AT with six group sessions of tuition, each over an hour in length. We will explore AT principles and how to apply them to improve your daily life. The first one is on Friday evening after dinner and the last is before lunch on Sunday.
There is a break on Saturday between 2 - 4pm when you may take a private lesson with Jill if you wish (pay on the day).

The course is suitable for beginners and anyone wishing to refresh their AT skills. It is a gentle journey into the AT in the calm surroundings of a Quaker retreat centre. Learn strategies and methods to take away.
