Recharging your batteries

Recharging your batteries

With the coming of fall and all that it brings in terms of responsibilities and new routines, it might be difficult to find time to rest and recharge your batteries.

Come and take a pause with us and resource yourself from within with mindfulness. More than ever is important to prioritize moments of just being. Benefit from a day in stillness and calm where guided mindfulness practices will help your busy and possibly anxious mind to come to rest. We will focus on grounding practices to quieten the mind and tap into the inner silence that is within all of us.

Join for some deep rest that can help you to see more clearly what you need to flourish. You can also find a sense of peace in the midst of a packed and often stressful life.

Why take a day of mindfulness?

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.

We will practice a mix of different forms of meditation, mindful walking and stretching, to bring your mind to rest and to tune into what really matters to you.

The day will mostly take place in silence, with English instructions given by the teacher. We also encourage you to refrain from using your phone.

Important information on your mental well-being and silent retreats

While meditation retreats can be very nourishing; they do require sustained meditation practice throughout your time there. This also demands some stability of psychological health and can be triggering for some people.

Have you experienced significant trauma or psychiatric illness, or are your currently struggling with your mental health such as with anxiety, depression, or burnout? If so, a retreat might not be the best option for you at the moment. The teacher might not be able to give you the kind of individual psychological care and support you need right now.

If you are currently under the care of a mental health professional, please discuss your attendance with them. You should be in a relatively stable period of mental well-being and have adequate psychological resilience.

Please fill in the questions in the registration form as open and honestly as possible, this will give us an idea of your current situation. The teacher of the retreat may reach out to you for more information

If you are unsure, or have any questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us directly at info@brusselsmindfulness.be.
