Description

About the Retreat

Mindfulness is an orientation to life though awareness of our natural state, moment by moment. It is developed through simple meditation practices which involve stilling the restless mind, relaxing the body and opening into the feeling of being. Mindfulness invites us to deepen self-awareness and liberate our attention to be more fully and vitally in the present moment. The process of mindful awareness makes use of the inherent ability of our mind and body to re-balance and sustain well-being, and discover positive new perspectives, solutions and responses to the challenges of life.
About the Retreat

This silent retreat will consist of group sessions along with open space for retreatants to move with their own rhythm. Daily sessions include instruction, sitting meditations and an enquiry period. This retreat is suitable for people who wish to establish themselves in a mindfulness practice as well as those with previous experience of mindfulness.
