ENJOY UNINTERRUPTED TIME AND SPACE, SIMPLY TO BE MINDFUL
Feel rested, relaxed, renewed
Our mindfulness day retreat is your gift to you!
It is a special space and time just for you, to feel released from life’s for busy-ness and ‘do, do, doing’.
It’s a place where you can simply BE, without expectation of yourself, others, without the sense of rushing or exposure to routine pressures of life.
It is day for you to gently reconnect with your mindfulness practice to if you have had a break from it, or to deepen your ongoing practice.
Your retreat will offer you time and a supported space to explore and experience the practices taught.
On our mindfulness day retreats we warmly welcome 8-week course attendees and anyone who practices or has practised mindfulness or meditation.
How we will spend our day
Travel light and ‘BE’ uplifted
The beauty of our (and many other) mindfulness retreats is that you don’t really need to bring anything other than yourself along. How good is that? There’s no over-planning or over-packing to be done in the lead up to joining with your course colleagues and new practitioners for a day of being mindful.
In our experience, the most relevant thing is physical 'comfyness'. So, we’d recommend that you wear your snuggliest, most comfy clothes, thick, cozy socks (as we’ll spend most of the day with no shoes on).
If we are physically comfy and relaxed then there’s plenty of space for the mind and body to learn to be comfy in their own right too. If you have your own meditation bench or cushion, then feel free to bring that along. Also, some clients enjoy bringing a notebook or journal to write down a few notes or reflections after the practices and some comfy shoes as we will likely do a bit of walking outside.

We are delighted to include some creative elements within the day too.

Arrival, welcome and introductions – sitting with the breath practice
Explore different types of sitting practices
Silent tea break
Explore gratitude, joy and kindness in a mindfulness practice
Lunch and mindful walking and some free time
Guided practices around specific themes (sitting and movement)
A question and answer session around mindfulness practice (specific to the day or in general)
Tea break (not silent)
Closing the shared session (short written exercise, practices and sharing)
