Event description

Description


All retreat days for the coming months have been cancelled. Tickets are available for retreat days from September 2020 onwards. However, the availability of retreat days will remain under review and will be dependent on government advice.


A precious opportunity to have time for you and your mind.

You can choose from a Guided Silent Retreat Day or an Unguided Silent Retreat Day. These retreat days take place on the same days from 10 am until 4 pm.

The Guided Silent Retreat Day is suitable for beginners and for those with some experience of mindfulness. If you have been using mindfulness Apps at home and would like to try a retreat, it is also suitable for you.

Although the day is in complete silence, you will be guided through the exercises within each session. You will also be encouraged in your breaks to be mindful with eating and drinking, and to be mindful of the silence.

The Unguided Silent Retreat Day is suitable for those with more experience of mindfulness and meditation. It is not suitable for beginners.

The day will be in complete silence and is unguided except for an introductory talk at the beginning. There will be 20 minutes meditation, 10 minutes walking or stretching or mindful movement then 20 minutes sitting again and so on. There will be breaks during the day.

Mindful Friends and Supporters please click on 'Select a date'. Choose your date and click 'Tickets'. You will then be able to choose 'Free' ticket for either Guided or Unguided Silent Retreat Day.

Please do not book a 'Free' ticket if you are not a member of Mindful Friends or a Supporter. Samye Foundation Wales is a registered charity and depends on income generated from events such as retreat days. Full payment for retreat day will be expected on the morning of the retreat day if you have booked a 'Free' ticket to which you are not entitled.

Both Guided Silent Retreat Day and Unguided Silent Retreat Day offer a precious opportunity to have this time for you and your mind, as normally we can get caught up in the busy humdrum of life. We look forward to welcoming you to the centre.



“The retreat day was amazing! Having the opportunity to consolidate all I have learned in a compassionate, supportive environment has given me the confidence to maintain my practice.” (Course participant)


Mugs & Momos vegan and gluten free tea room will be open on the retreat day if you wish to purchase hot food for lunch. Orders can be placed from 9.50 am before the retreat day begins.

Each retreat day is available individually, or as part of our Mindful Friends scheme, and there are monthly group meetings which subscribers to Mindful Friends can attend.

Please note that mindfulness training is not a treatment for mental health conditions. If you have recently received or are currently receiving treatment for a mental health condition, we advise that you obtain approval to attend from your GP, or contact Lorraine at lorraine@sfwales.org to discuss this further.


Wheelchair access: Mindfulness courses & retreats in Cardiff are taught on our ground floor where there is a wheelchair accessible toilet. Please contact us prior to your visit at admin@sfwales.org or call 02920 228 040 should you need wheelchair access so we can put the portable ramp in place to allow access.
