Course Details 

Our Retreat Days are a wonderful way to spend time in the company of other mindful practitioners, exploring different aspects of Mindfulness. The majority of the day is spent in silence, with the intention of cultivating a greater sense of present awareness, free of the usual social pressures and obligations we all feel. 

The day begins with a hot drink, snack and introduction from the teacher, followed by a series of guided meditations. These include both still practices, and those involving gentle movement and walking. A vegetarian lunch is followed by additional practice, before we come out of silence and take a little time to reflect on our experience of the day. 

Days are focused around a particular topic, recent examples have included 'New Year, Starting Again' and 'Finding Stability in the Midst of Uncertainty'.

 

As part of the day is spent in the forest, gardens or countryside comfortable clothing, weatherproof footwear and coats are advised. We also ask participants to bring their own yoga mat and meditation cushion if you have these. 

 

We schedule several of these days throughout the year so if the next date does not suit you, please keep checking for updates or do get in touch.
