MBIT Retreat – 26th October 2019
Practice Retreat Days and Teaching Retreats and Workshops
Our City Based Mindfulness Retreat Days offer you an opportunity to immerse yourself in the mindfulness practices and teachings we cover in the Mindfulness Based Inclusion Training (MBIT) and 8 Week Mindfulness Based Living Course (MBLC).
Occasionally, some of the day will be spent in silence or quiet contemplation so we can deepen our experience of mindfulness, and explore the impact of being ever more present whilst together as a group.
The retreat days offer an opportunity to spend time with ourselves and the group in a nourishing way. Letting go of our usual agendas and responsibilities. It is designed to be a nourishing time to be away from our diary of things to do, our mobile phone, our work and other demands of everyday city living.
The structure of the day will be spacious and laid out for you, as we seamlessly move from one practice to another taking away the need to make decisions about what we need to do next and allowing our mindfulness practice to flourish.
