Trish Magyari and Jennifer Stanley are happy to offer another residential silent retreat for women highlighting practices from Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) at Pearlstone Retreat Center. This teacher-led intensive silent retreat is perfect for MSC graduates, graduates of MSC Core Skills training, MSC teachers or teacher-in-training. Strengthen your ability to be present with yourself just as you are, with kindness and care with expert guidance by an experienced retreat leader and in a compassionate community of others.
This 6- night Silent retreat fulfills the prerequisite for MSC teacher training. Past participants in the teacher training track have felt this retreat greatly increased their understanding of and application of MSC practices, core principals, and compassion-in-action in their own life.
The philosophy of mindful self-compassion will be woven throughout the retreat in both what we are doing and how we are working with the retreat experience. This includes daily practice with the inquiry, “What do I need right now?. The daily schedule includes guided and silent sitting and walking meditation, mindful movement/gentle yoga, daily sense and savor walk outdoors, affectionate body scan, lovingkindness meditation, other compassion practices, and teaching focused on applying self-compassion in daily life. Individual and group inquiry sessions with teachers are included. All of the core practices from MSC will be practiced extensively throughout the retreat.
Note: This silent retreat is *not* appropriate for those in a current mental health crisis, those with unresolved trauma or with serious untreated or unregulated mental health conditions. It is an excellent option for experienced mindfulness and/or self-compassion practitioners (those with previous silent retreat experience); or MSC or MBSR graduates; or those in a mindfulness or self-compassion teaching training track. Please contact Trish if you are not sure whether this retreat is right for you at this time.
