5 days retreat – 16 to 20 May 2015

Mindfulness retreat – highlights

Join us for 4 nights and 5 days in this simple yet powerful mindfulness retreat to reset your mind.
This retreat is a condensed version of the 7 days retreat and is designed for those who cannot take longer days off work.

You are welcome to the retreat no matter what your meditation experience may be. It may be your first meditation retreat, perhaps your first mindfulness encounter, or maybe you have been practising meditation for sometime.

The retreat introduces the basic principles of mindfulness meditation for health and well-being and then gradually takes you deep into experiencing your body and mind fully.

To help you achieve the best results during these 5 sunny days, we are combining healthy food, sound sleep, peaceful environment and clean air to restore your energies for starting or deepening your mindfulness meditation practice.

Benefits of participating

If you are someone who is constantly on the go, an anxious person, a worrier and hard on yourself, then the retreat will help you be less erratic, more gentle and compassionate to yourself, and provide the time and space to focus on the things important to you in the moment.

If you suffer from long term physical conditions such as bodily pain, fibromyalgia, allergies, headache and migraine to name a few, this retreat will help you manage those feelings and thoughts and be more resilient. Our expert teachers can help you tap and unlock those resistances.

Things to do

It is not purely meditation, as we understand that you may not be familiar with long hours of sitting. Unlike other silent meditation retreats, we are deliberately flexible. We believe that the retreat should also be fun. Therefore, we have planned daily for you various fun activities, such as hiking, swimming, cycling and horse-riding.

We also recognise the need for 1-2-1 coaching and mentoring for personal development. This is suitable if you feel stuck in your life due to past events, and need a breakthrough, our team of professionals certainly can provide you confidential listening, non-judgemental attitudes, and new insights.
