Event description

Description

All Day Retreats are offered on every second Saturday of each month throughout the academic year at the Chaplaincy Centre.

A retreat is a wonderful opportunity for learning and directly experiencing mindfulness practices, consolidating your already established practices, cultivating shared understanding and wisdom from which we can all learn, grow and be nourished. Our retreats are for everyone, from complete beginner to advanced practitioner.

WHO IS IT FOR?

The Retreat is open for everyone all UoE and Non-UoE, Mindfullybeing members, interested in mindfulness training. You do not require any previous experience of mindfulness meditation to be on this retreat. They are for people who would like to be familiar with mindfulness and offer an opportunity to step aside from our everyday lives to learn new mindfulness meditation practices, deepen our mindfulness practice as a way of life, connect with others who practice mindfulness, nourish ourselves and taking time to be with ourselves.
