  • Mindfulness Retreat Day In Person London

This in-person mindfulness retreat is an invitation to get away and take some time just for yourself. Over the course of the day, you will be gently guided through practices that will allow you to slow down, reconnect with yourself and cultivate an inner sense of ease and calm.

Held at the beautiful Mary Ward House in London, the retreat day will consist of a mixture of guided mindfulness and compassion practices, including stillness and movement meditation, that will help us to still the mind and connect with the here and now. The invitation will be to spend the day in silence, with a chance to reflect with others at the end of the day.

The retreat day will be led by experienced mindfulness and self-compassion teacher Rosemary Sandham, who is one of The Mindfulness Project’s founding teachers with over 20-years experience.

Whether you are new to mindfulness, an experienced practitioner (or somewhere in-between), attending a mindfulness retreat day offers a chance to deepen your practice and be supported within a community of like-minded people. Through cultivating the key attitudes of mindfulness throughout the course of the day, we will be reminded of how mindfulness can help us to meet the challenges of everyday life with greater ease and awareness, cultivating greater connection and compassion.

Many find attending a retreat day can help to provide inspiration to reinvigorate mindfulness practice beyond the day. For those that have completed an eight-week course online with us in the last few years, it also offers a chance to experience a retreat in-person.
