Day of Nourishment: Relax and rejuvenate

A one-day retreat in an exclusive setting with a small group

Sunday 28 July, from 10.30 to 17.00.

With certified mindfulness teacher Lorinda Brinton

Recharge from within

Recharge from within

A variety of mindfulness practices will guide your busy mind into a state of rest, focusing on grounding techniques to access the inner peace within and to get in touch with what really matters.

This day is a wonderful opportunity to practice mindfulness in a safe setting, to take care of yourself and to listen to your body and honour your needs.

Benefits of this day

  • Cultivate contentment, fulfillment, and a deeper sense of connection.
  • Develop a kinder, more compassionate inner voice, quieting the inner critic.
  • Experience the benefits of meditating in a group, enhancing daily motivation.
  • Refresh and deepen your mindfulness practice.
  • Energize yourself with a powerful boost to navigate daily challenges.
  • Gain a sense of peace amid life's busyness and stress.

It is an opportunity to refresh and deepen your practice. Practising together in a group can help you reconnect with meditation and boost your motivation to continue with it on a daily basis. 

We will practice a mix of different forms of meditation, mindful walking, and stretching, to bring our mind to rest and ground ourselves in the here and now.

Digital detox and silence

The day will mostly take place in silence, with English instructions given by the teacher.

Experience a digital detox throughout the day; keep your phone on flight mode or leave it behind. Please inform your contacts of your unavailability, except for emergencies. Embrace the silence, deepening your sense of rest and peace while connecting with the group.

For whom?

This one-day retreat is an ideal opportunity for deepening your practice if you have followed a course or a retreat or have some experience with yoga or meditation.

You are also welcome if you haven’t tried yoga, would like to get a taste of mindfulness and meditation or are simply looking for some peace and calm.

It is best to join this retreat day when you are in a relatively stable condition. If you are currently experiencing an episode of depression or anxiety, it may be better to wait until you feel more settled.

For inquiries or if you are new to mindfulness or yoga, please contact us so we can discuss your participation.

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.
