Whilst it doesn't really look like it from this picture - taken this week with an atmospheric sea mist rising - spring is most definitely in the air. We have planted 1000 bluebells in the wood and can spot signs of new life all around us.
A recent retreat guest described our Labyrinth as having a 'thin veil'. This term is hard to describe but as far as I understand it, describes a place which has a bit of spiritual umph or je ne sais quoi about it. I found some websites which provide a more eloquent explanation than mine. Come and experience this 'thin veil' for yourself soon!
