Event Details

A quiet, peaceful day, away from the hustle and bustle of daily life, where course participants can explore and deepen their mindfulness meditation practice.  


Day Retreat Overview

On this practice day we work with the R.A.I.N. meditation - recognising, allowing, investigating and non-identifying. This meditation allows us to reflect on a particular difficulty or area of our life and bring mindfulness to explore our relationhip with it. By considering each aspect of the R.A.I.N. acronym we allow ourselves to reflect more deeply on the story we build around this difficulty.  

The day provides an ideal opportunity to:

  • Set aside some time to relax, refresh and rejuvenate yourself
  • Deepen your meditation practice and strengthen the skills learnt during your course
  • Enjoy some simple and effective mindful movement exercises
  • Develop skills to use in your daily life to help you become and remain calm, aware, focused and energised


Who can Attend

This practice day is designed to support our MBSR / MBCT course participants and graduates, or those with an established meditation practice. Please note, certificates of attendance are available upon request.  

This retreat is not suitable for beginners, but we do offer a range of alternative events (including taster sessions and introductory workshops) which are ideal for those exploring mindfulness for the first time. Please check out our eventbrite page for more details -
