Sunday 2 December 2018
From 9.30 to 16.30
At the beautiful farm "The Abode" in the Flemish Pajottenland close to Brussels.
Carpooling will be organised shortly before the event.
1-day mindfulness retreat. For people who already practice mindfulness.
You have done a mindfulness course in the past, you already do yoga or practise meditation on your own? It's not always easy to keep up a daily practice. Somehow, daily life takes over again and again and even though you know the value of mindfulness, you don't practise it as much as you'd like to.
A day of mindfulness allows you to take a deeper dive, so you can at the same time refresh and deepen your practice. This can help you reconnect with meditation, and boost your motivation to continue with it on a daily basis. You can also feel the benefit of meditating in a group again.
We will practice a mix of different forms of meditation, walks in nature and some mindful yoga, to bring your mind at rest and to tune into what really matters to you.
There will also be enough free time to experience the beautiful domain and the surrounding fields.
The day will mostly take place in silence, with English instructions given by the trainer.
Ideally, you already have some experience with mindfulness and/or yoga. If you are completely new to mindfulness or yoga, get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will contact you to discuss this further.
Some benefits of a day of mindfulness
- Feeling more rested, relaxed and calm.
- Gaining greater physical and psychological wellbeing.
- Having the opportunity to deepen your mindfulness practice.
- Finding a new sense of inner freedom.
- Being able to see more clearly what really matters to you.
The day will take place in "The Abode", a 200-year old farm in Sint Martens Lennik, just 20 minutes from Brussels.
The place is a haven of peace, with sheep and fields around it. The hosts, Inge and Hugo, who are passionate yoga teachers themselves, have restored the farm in a very authentic way and 100% energy neutral.
Around the farm there are many beautiful walks though the fields.
The food is very tasty, organic and homemade. Tea, coffee and snacks are available throughout the retreat.
There will also be free time where you can either walk alone or rest in the spacious grange, the cozy living room or on the terrace next to the pond.
It is possible to book a night at the B&B where the day of mindfulness will take place, before and/or after the day. Please contact the location to book: email@example.com.
