The environment of Tigg’s Pond supports the teaching and retreat opportunities that are offered here by giving us all space to reflect, write, play, rest, wander, climb, swim and interact within the balance and harmony of nature at her most beautiful. There is time and space to think about who we are and whose we are. There are places to relax and not think about anything at all. There are numerous special environments to hunker down in and feel safe and cared for and loved so that we can dare to open our hearts and embrace the internal places we need to visit. And there is a special sense of time here, that stretches out and envelops us all in the source of silence, peace and wisdom.
Part of raising one’s spiritual awareness, it must be said, is also relaxing enough to let it happen to you. Tigg’s Pond is just naturally a great place to hang out as well as to learn. There are many areas here to explore and experience. Yes, eat blueberries off the bush. But also let go and have a swim in the pond, or lie in the hammock and let the stream lull you to sleep. Eat a fresh tomato sandwich for lunch. Rub some lavender between your hands. Walk the labyrinth. Watch the fish in the pond watch you. Open your heart and see what happens. Or just rest in the middle of it all.
