All Day Silent Mindful Practice Days
MINDFULNESS ALL DAY PRACTICE
Sunday 9 October 2022
9.45 am - 4.30 pm
An opportunity to take kind time for yourself amidst the hustle and bustle of life.
Venue: The Pavilion, Steiner Academy Hereford School, Much Dewchurch, Herefordshire, HR2 8DL
Cost: £55 to include a light lunch and drinks.
This warm and embracing venue is nestled in a quiet, secluded area within the beautiful grounds and gardens of the Academy, a nourishing and nurturing space for a retreat day.
This day will be a silent retreat, with the mindful invitation to become present in a contemplative and kindly approach, helping nourish and refresh our sense of wellbeing.
We are not stepping out of our life, rather stepping into whatever arises in the moment, giving ourselves compassionate and generous attention, allowing an unfolding into presence, in a supportive and kindly environment.
There will be a number of lying, sitting and movement meditation practices, with time to reflect and rest, to absorb and be, in a supportive and warm environment.
Teas and coffees will be available all day and we will have a light, wholesome lunch such as soup and bread and fruit. We will have tea and cake at the end of the day.
The Pavilion, at the Steiner Academy Hereford School
What you will need to bring
A yoga mat
Cushions/blocks for your head and to support under your knees if needed.
This day is suitable for
Those who have little or some meditation experience/practice, who wish to explore mindfulness meditations and/or have attended mindfulness courses or similar. This is an opportunity for people who wish to explore and/or deepen their attention to mindful development and awareness of self, with compassion and intuitive wisdom.
The nature of the day is often deeply contemplative for people and may not be suitable for people who are experiencing acute mental health episodes and similar conditions. Please contact me to discuss any queries regarding this.
