A day retreat allows for a more sustained and intensive cultivation of the mindfulness perspective. These retreats are for people who already practice mindfulness meditation; perhaps coming to the end of an 8 week course, or graduates of previous 8 week courses. They are also suitable for mental health & well-being practitioners who are exploring how to weave the mindfulness and acceptance perspective into their therapeutic work with others. (CPD certificates will be available on prior request )
Intended as a day for deepening personal practice, support, networking and facilitated group inter-vision; the balance between these intentions will depend upon the group composition and the stated individual needs and preferences of participants. As well as serving as a refresher for mindfulness practices typically used in an 8 week (or 2weekend) course we’ll work with new practices such as: ‘loving kindness’ and ‘compassion’.
I’m pleased to be offering a series of three retreats per year at a variety of inspiring venues. Retreats will happen towards the end of each school term, to coincide with the ‘termly’ MBSR/MBCT courses.
