One Day Retreats

One Day RetreatsRetreat days are for anyone who has attended an eight week course either with Living Well Mindfulness or elsewhere, or who already has an established mindfulness practice.

  • The Day Retreat is an opportunity for you to consolidate the mindfulness learned on the 8 week course and to deepen your practice.
  • The Day Retreat can also be valuable for those who have completed an 8 week course some time ago and would like a refresher.
  • Previous participants have found the Day Retreat relaxing and fulfilling.

During the day you will be guided on the meditations that participants learned on the 8 week course, with the opportunity to experience slightly longer meditations than is possible in the 8 weeks.

As well as familiar practices such as Mindful Movement, you will be introduced to some new practices, such as periods of silence.  Weather permitting, you are encouraged to spend some time out of doors and experience mindful walking.

Participants should wear loose, comfortable clothing.  Although mats and meditation equipment are provided, participants may like to bring extra cushions, blankets and mats if they have their own.

Day Retreats cost £40.

Refreshments are included but you are asked to bring contributions for a ‘Bring and Share’ lunch.

Who can the One Day Retreats help?

This is for anyone who has attended our courses.

They may also be helpful for people who have attended other mindfulness courses, but please phone to discuss before booking.

How can the One Day Retreats help?

The Day Retreat draws together all the practices you learn on the 8 week course. By experiencing a whole day of mindfulness, you have more chance to feel its benefits.

By the end, we hope you will feel refreshed and rejuvenated.
