A (half-)day mindfulness retreat for people who would like to tap into their inner resources of healing and nourishment
Under the skilful guidance of a certified mindfulness teacher and supported by the power of meditating in a group.
Easter Monday- normally a day to do something special with others, maybe even going to church or to a nice place. This time Easter will be in confinement. But why not make it special to you in another way and give yourself a treat? This is the perfect time to create a home retreat for yourself. Join our online retreat and resource yourself with mindfulness practices and supported by a group of like-minded people.
In these uncertain times we are all facing a lot of anxiety and stress. The practice of mindfulness is now more important than ever. We can use social distancing as an invitation to go into a mindfulness retreat as a radical act of sanity and compassion to ourselves and others.
We invite you to take a pause and resource yourself from within with mindfulness. Benefit from guided mindfulness practices which help your busy and possibly anxious mind to find rest and and to tap into your own resources of healing and nourishment. This day can be a powerful way to drop into your own resources of healing and transformation. It will help you to release fear and find a sense of peace,contentment and love in the midst of challenging times. By meditating together you will feel the energy of being supported by others in a safe space and be deeply connected.
The purpose of a retreat is to follow a formal rhythm of practice that allows you to center yourself, tend your body, quiet your mind, see the present circumstances with clarity and freedom, and open your heart. By choosing to let go of the usual habits of distraction, online time, unnecessary busyness and tasks that can wait, you can make this a beneficial and healing time.
Though initially a online retreat at home may feel unfamiliar or hard, you will gradually find yourself settling in and feeling grateful for the rewards. Now is the perfect time to draw on the inner strength of meditation and deepen your capacity to live amidst it all with awareness and compassion.
Maybe you have done a mindfulness course in the past or you already practice yoga or 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. Or even if you maintain your daily self-practice, it is important to regularly also meditate in a group and enjoy this very deep and nourishing experience.
A retreat 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.
We will practice a mix of different forms of mindfulness and positive neuroplasticity meditations, mindful walking and stretching to bring your mind to rest and to find a deep sense of peace, contentment and love. There will be moments of deep connections with others and also some time for a mindful coffee and tea break.
