Description

Mindful Space Summer Retreat, July 2020
Finding Peace in a Busy World

When we get too caught up in the busyness of the world, we lose connection with one another - and ourselves.
Jack Kornfield


Let this retreat be an opportunity to stop, to rest and to reconnect; with ourselves, with others and the natural world around us. We will reflect on what draws us into busyness and how we can start to untangle ourselves. Experience a peaceful, nurturing weekend in a beautiful woodland setting.


What will I get out of the retreat?
The opportunity to…

  • Deepen and energise your mindfulness meditation practice
  • Reflect on what draws us into busyness
  • Cultivate your awareness of body and breath
  • Reconnect with your deeper values
  • Have a peaceful, nourishing weekend with others in silence
