This New Year weekend retreat provides a rare opportunity to really give yourself to being nourished and refreshed in a supported and kindly environment. The retreat offers a blend of guided mindfulness and self-compassion practices which support participants in learning to relate more skillfully and wholeheartedly to their experience – whatever may be going on in life.
Periods of silent practice and times to share reflections with others are woven into the retreat timetable. The spacious weekend format also incorporates opportunities to take advantage of the natural environment, which lends itself to relaxing in the beautiful setting of the Fintry Trust.
Participants are likely to have completed an 8-week mindfulness course (eg MBSR, MBCT, Breathworks) and / or practice mindfulness on a regular basis. They may also have taken a Mindful Self-Compassion course (either over 8-weeks or in the 5-day residential format), though this is not a pre-requisite to participating in the retreat. Please get in touch if you are unsure whether this retreat is right for you.
