Aug 28 @ 9:30 pm – Aug 29 @ 12:30 am
JONO @ Ben Nevis Bar Fort William | Fort William | United Kingdom

Scottish singer songwriter and producer JONO started recording songs at age 13. By his mid-20’s he had produced his earliest material, gigged in countless bands, and produced for local, signed and charting artists. Due to inherit the family manufacturing business, he walked away from this secure future to produce his Debut Solo Album. Rounded yet rugged, refined yet raw, he launched “Sentimental Anarchist” to critical acclaim, built around his infectious voice, melodies and unique guitar style. It was single handedly written and recorded by JONO in his Glasgow flat.

Zenways Mountain Walking Retreat @ Glencoe Independent Hostel
Sep 3 @ 6:00 pm – Sep 6 @ 2:00 pm
Zenways Mountain Walking Retreat @ Glencoe Independent Hostel | Fort William | United Kingdom

This three-day retreat is based in the spectacular Scottish Highlands and will combine traditional Zen practices with mountain walking. Friday and Saturday will involve spending most of each day hiking into high mountain areas (weather permitting) with a shorter low-level walk on the last day. Previous experience of hillwalking or retreats is not required but a reasonable level of fitness is essential and some experience of retreats will be helpful.

Our days will begin and end with meditation. After breakfast and making up our packed lunches, most of our time will be devoted to walking in the mountains together as a group. We will use this as the focus for our Zen practice, walking with extended periods of silent reflection as well as incorporating some simple rituals into each journey into the mountain environment. Each of the day’s walks will be led by a qualified Mountain Leader who will hold the final decision for route choice on the day, dependent on the weather conditions. Walks may last for up to six hours. All walks will be on established paths but they are rocky and rough at times with steep drops. Ascent (and descent) may be up to 800 metres in a day – the equivalent of climbing up and down the London Eye six times.

The Scottish Highlands are famous for being able to produce ‘four seasons in one day’ and participants must be suitably equipped for a full day in the hills. Minimum essentials include: waterproof jacket with a hood, waterproof trousers, thermal layers, a sturdy pair of walking boots, hat, gloves, water-bottle or flask and rucksack. A full list will be issued to all participants.

All meals will be vegetarian/vegan. We will have a shared work rota to help with food preparation and washing up and we will make up our own packed lunches each day. The retreat is limited to 13 places.
