Mindfulness Day Retreat

About Mindfulness Day Retreat

What if you could give yourself permission to look after your well-being for a whole day, reducing your stress levels and finding balance?

Imagine stepping away from your demanding day-to-day life and embracing the present moment whilst on a silent retreat... Really allowing yourself time to relax and switch off from the busyness of life.

We all know our lives can be non-stop, and we’re hearing how important self-care is; not only to ourselves, but to help those around us. Let’s face it, we can’t pour from an empty jug!

This day-long retreat is the perfect way to do all that; look after our body, mind, and selves! Mindfulness and meditation are extremely beneficial in reducing stress, building resilience, and maintaining and improving mental health, amongst many other things.

The Retreat
The retreat will consist of numerous meditations, mindful activities, and movements, and we’ll get the chance to savour our delicious lunch for an hour of mindful eating in the middle of the day! The retreat, once we’ve arrived and settled in, will be done in silence – fully embracing our presence and allowing ourselves to switch from ‘doing mode’ into ‘being mode’. What better way to spend a Sunday than in our moment to moment experience!

Overview of the schedule:
10:00 – 10:30 - Arrival, relax and settle in with a cuppa
10:30 – 13:00 – Mix of meditations, movements and mindful activities
13:00 – 14:00 – Mindful Lunch!
14:00 – 16:30 – Mix of meditations, movements and mindful activities
16:30 – Closing ceremony and home-time!

Location:
The retreat is held in the beautiful Old Barn in Pollock Park. This means that whatever the weather, come rain or shine, we’ll have a brill time with indoor and outdoor areas for us to use and enjoy. More information, such as what to bring and everything else needed, will be sent by email after booking your deposit.

Cost:
The deposit, paid through Eventbrite, is £25.00, and is non-refundable. The full price of the day retreat is £40.00 and the remaining amount is to be paid by the beginning of June. If your circumstances change for whatever reason, or you are on financial aid, and you would like to discuss payment options, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. I want to make this retreat accessible to as many as possible, irrespective of financial circumstances.
