Event description

Description

This full day silent retreat is open to graduates of any of our 8-week programs over the years or have completed a similar MBCT or MBSR program. Join us for a silent day of guided sitting meditations, mindful movement meditations, heart practices and an eating meditation over lunch. If you've never done a full day of practice before, it might feel a bit nerve-wracking or you might question your readiness, however if you have done an 8-weeker, you are ready for this next step. Practicing seamlessly throughout the day in a supportive environment facilitated by two registered healthcare professionals/mindfulness teachers, is a wonderful way to foster and nurture stillness and presence in our busy, complicated lives.

We will be starting at 10 a.m. sharp, however we recommend that you try to be there by 9:45 a.m. to allow yourself to settle in. As soon as you walk in, you will be going into silence and then we'll provide the orientation at 10 am. Some people like to do some self-directed light stretches before we start to warm and loosen up the body.

Please remember to bring a lunch as we will be doing an eating meditation during lunchtime. Hot water and mugs will be provided for tea. You might want to think about packing some interesting and healthy things for lunch :)

The facilitators, who also participate in retreats, as well as our graduates who have attended before, can verify the fact that by practicing for this prolonged period, you'll take away different insights, knowledge and self-awareness.

If you have any questions at all, please let us know at angie@mindfulnessforhealth.ca or Gaye gaye.gould@sympatico.ca

Warm regards,

Angie and Gaye
