Mindfulness Retreat 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

The retreat is for people who have completed the 8-week MBSR course, have attended a workshop or already have some mindfulness experience.

A retreat is an opportunity to reduce our distractions and focus on deepening our experience of a particular practice. You will be guided through the four foundations of mindfulness in a silent and supportive environment and have the opportunity to really experience the peacefulness that mindfulness can bring.

Please wear loose clothes so that you will be comfortable to sit, lie down and perform simple yoga and qigong exercises.

Feedback from the July 2015 retreat participants:

“A real sense of peace and calm.”

“ I found today very soothing and restorative.”

“I have found that I have been able to let go of thoughts both past and present in today’s retreat. This is a big step for me as I tend to hold onto things that build up over a series of months.”

*All profits from the Day Retreat will be donated to our Sri Lankan children’s charity Mindful Kids Preschool and used to buy the children school bags and stationery for their new academic year starting in January.
