Course Navigation

This retreat will be small and personal. In this way, we intend to offer the value of a nourishing retreat experience, holding a safe and gentle space for your exploration of mindfulness and self-compassion.

This retreat is for those who want to develop or deepen their capacity to relate more kindly to themselves and their experience, through immersing themselves in continuity of practice in the retreat setting. This retreat is for those who have taken a mindfulness-based course such as MBSR/MBCT or equivalent as a minimum. You may also have completed a Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) course, either over eight weeks, or in an intensive format. It is equally suitable for those that have trained to teach MSC. The emphasis of the retreat will be on looking after ourselves, and on nourishing our compassion both through our practice, and through time for relaxation. We will be spending plenty of practice time outside.

What to expect – this retreat will be small and personal. In this way, we intend to offer the value of a nourishing retreat experience, holding a safe and gentle space for your exploration of mindfulness and self-compassion. The teacher/s will guide a range of practices to enhance and deepen mindfulness, loving-kindness, self-compassion, joy and equanimity. You will remain mostly in silence so you can deeply explore and learn as much as possible from your own experience of these.

The first evening will be an orientation session. For the four remaining days, the practices in the mornings and afternoons will include alternate sitting or lying and movement practices. In addition, there will be a silent early morning practice before breakfast. In the evenings the teacher will offer talks to help you relate experientially to the following day’s practices. There will also be the opportunity to share reflections in small groups to support your retreat experience.

The emphasis of the retreat will be on looking after ourselves and on nourishing our compassion both through our practice and through time for self-care outside of our online engagement.
