  • Weekend Mindfulness Retreat

Stepping away from everyday life, and spending time for yourself on a mindfulness retreat is a powerful way to relax, reconnect and restore. The new year is the perfect time for a retreat to recharge your inner resource and help you re-centre for the year ahead.

We’re excited to be hosting this retreat in the beautiful space downstairs from us -- which has towering ceilings and big windows overlooking the serene square garden below. This oasis right in the centre of London will provide the perfect backdrop to settle-in to periods of silence and practice, with the support of two highly skilled teachers and the connection of a group.

The retreat will provide an opportunity to explore the ways in which mindfulness practices can help us to build resilience in times of difficulty and uncertainty, reminding ourselves of our ever-present capacity to respond to life’s challenges with greater ease and awareness. We will investigate the tendencies that incline us away from our inner resources, and how mindfulness practice can serve to nourish these, cultivating presence, insight, and the capacity to relate to ourselves and others with greater compassion.

Connecting with our deeper values and intentions, we will also explore how mindfulness practice may help us guide the direction of our life as it unfolds in the year ahead.

A combination of mindfulness practice, in stillness and in motion, with talks, inquiry and dialogues will be used to support a process of mutual learning. The teaching will draw from the methods of current mindfulness-based interventions, and the scientific knowledge about their mechanisms of action as well as their traditional roots.

The retreat is suitable for beginners and experienced meditators alike. It offers the perfect opportunity to reconnect with your practice if it has lapsed, and many find that attending retreats offers motivation to help jumpstart or support an ongoing mindfulness practice.
