Mindfulness 1 Day Silent Retreat
In today’s fast paced and supercharged world, we all need a moment to reboot our mind and re-connect with our inner-calm. A mindfulness silent day retreat is the ideal opportunity to spend time with yourself, away from your ‘to do’ list and your mobile phone. A time to recharge and re-connect with yourself without the pressures and responsibilities of your daily life.
Mindfulness is known to benefit people with a range of problems of both a physical and a psychological nature, but it is not necessary to have a specific problem to find it helpful. We all have times in our lives when we experience difficulty, stress and struggle. The problem itself may not change but the way we relate to and cope with the difficulty may shift, making it all feel easier. Developing greater awareness can open us to be able to change how we approach our experiences – taking more pleasure in the good things and dealing more effectively with the difficulties.
The 8 week Mindfulness course is an excellent way to get grounded in meditation practice and start to experience its benefits. Research has shown that, in as little as eight weeks of practice structural and functional changes can be observed in the brain. The course is a mix of theory, mindfulness practices and tools & tips for daily life.
The courses and retreats are guided in either English or Dutch.
