The meditation & well-being centre opens in less than 3 weeks & we need to fully kit it out with mats, cushions, furniture and fairy lights!

The Wee Retreat has been a dream of mine since going on a week long meditation retreat in Spain 3 years ago and feeling that everyone should have the opportunity to have retreats in their lives. 

We can't all hop on a plane to Spain or visit an ashram in India for retreats and I don't think we need to. If we are always waiting till we have the time/money/whatever, we are missing the joy we have in our lives now. 

My aim for The Wee Retreat is to bring the sense of serenity and calm to people's everyday lives whether it is by coming to a mindfulness course, going to a yoga class or taking some time out to have a cup of tea in the beautiful centre. 

The Wee Retreat is registered as a Community Interest Company which means it will use 100% of its profits to meet its social aims. We intend to offer a scheme which will allow people who are facing barriers to employment to work at the centre in exchange for its retreats as well as offer reduced or free places on our events for those whose financial situation would prevent them from attending.

The space I have found is beautiful... it is a real sanctuary in Glasgow's southside and now it needs to be filled with everything I need to be able to offer people Wee Retreats.
