Join us for a weekend online retreat of meditation and gentle yoga practices,
This retreat is held using Zoom and provides you with a chance to take two days off to relax, recharge and meditate.

There will be a few brief discourses were we will look into:
• The auto-pilot mind (bossy mind)
• Negative self-talk and how to reverse it (self-acceptance and forgiveness)
• Facing ourselves in 100% honesty- recognising patterns of thinking and behaving based on hurt, loss, misunderstandings etc.
As well as:
• Noticing the judging mind (our thoughts); wanting, liking, preferences and how these mental habits can interfere with simply being present and allowing what is!
• Practices for self-compassion and compassion for others.
• Practices that actively connect us to the balancing energy of the earth and
the environment.

If you’ve never been on a meditation retreat before, this is an ideal place to start. There will be meditation instruction for both beginners and advanced practitioners, there will be breaks for lunch and individual practice throughout the day

What’s possible with regular mindfulness practice is self-regulation, giving up unhappiness and living a life of purpose as well as experiencing a more vibrant connection to life itself. Even if you are not fully convinced, you will have a relaxing time and learn how to connect with the deeper reality beneath the busy mind.

The Natural State Of Being Human

Mindfulness is not new, it is thousands of years old and has been practiced in many eastern cultures as a way of maintaining mental balance against the inevitable distortions the mind generates. Mindfulness has made it to the west for a number of reasons; technology has developed and allowed researchers to study and understand the function of the brain more fully so that we now have an enormous amount of evidence-based research confirming the benefits of regular practice.

In our fast paced and increasingly distracted and fragmented world mindfulness and meditation is proven to re-empower people with their own natural ability to restore the fragmented mind to a state of wholeness and presence.

Understanding how the brain works goes a long way to empowering people to practice mindfulness. Mindfulness ‘teaches’ us how thoughts and feelings affect our state of being and how we are able to train ourselves, intentionally, to observe the activity of the mind without becoming entrapped and start believing every thought the mind produces or be swept away by every emotion felt.

Mindfulness trains us to recognise we have a choice of where to put our attention and to recognise when we are becoming trapped in unhelpful thinking.

At this retreat you will have opportunity to deepen your own Mindfulness practice and be empowered by the discovery that you can self-manage your thoughts and emotions.

It doesn’t matter if you never meditated or done one mindfulness exercise in your life, this retreat is for anyone who are moved to establish or deepen their own Mindfulness practice and to improve focus, mental resilience and find more emotional and mental balance in their life.

Benefits such as:

  • Decreased stress and anxiety
  • Better sleep
  • Better self-management
  • Less reactivity
  • Improved mental resilience
  • Increased self-awareness
  • Better memory
  • Increased attention and focus
  • Better conflict resolution skills

are common and expectable result from regular Mindfulness practice.

traditional sense – you are in fact removing some of the mental clutter
that is holding you back from being naturally mindful and in a state of

Relieve Anxiety & Stress


In our fast paced lives, where we rush from one demand to another, there is very little time or space to stop and pause. Mindfulness offer the tools needed to connect with our inner intelligence, where we can access natural calmness beneath the busy minds.

Coming in contact with your direct experience in the mindful state allows us to become familiar with the patterns that direct our lives; our thoughts, emotions and reactions.

OVERCOME WORRYING
& NEGATIVE THINKING


Pain is an inevitable part of being human but suffering is optional. In Mindfulness we learn how to manage our thoughts and emotions instead of letting emotions and thoughts manage us.

STOP INNER CHATTER


Aimless thinking and inner chatter is draining our energy and clouding over the present moment. One of the most common benefits from regular Mindfulness training is greater mental clarity and a new sense of inner peace.
