Date: 20th – 24th June 2019
Join us for Exploration of Mindfulness in Movement and Stillness Retreat; hosted by Helen and Dr. David Brown
Whilst this Retreat meets the guidelines for Mindfulness Teachers registered with the UK Network it will be attractive for individuals who want to step out of their busy world and into a place of calm and clarity.
The Glenthorne Retreat will enable you to take your practice to a deeper level and include small group meetings and the opportunity for one-to-one meetings with the Teachers. Each day will consist of guided Mindfulness practices. This enables the development of insight into the scattered mind and stepping away from a state of reactivity to experience yourself as a more relaxed and centred being. There will be a maximum of 12 participants.
Suitable for newcomers and participants of the 8 week mindfulness course.
The Mindfulness practices covered on the retreat will include:
- Mindfulness of Breathing
- Body Awareness/Scan
- Compassion Meditation
- Choiceless Awareness/Just Sitting
- Three Step Breathing Space
- Mindful Walking and Movement
