The Nottingham Mindfulness Centre runs retreats periodically. Our retreats are suitable for people who have attended an 8 week mindfulness based cognitive therapy course, or similar. They are also relevant for those training to be mindfulness teachers, as well as more experienced teachers.
Nottingham Centre for mindfulness offers Retreat Days throughout the year. These are an opportunity to connect and spend time with other mindfulness practitioners and teachers both within and outside of the Trust.
Retreat days offer an invaluable way of deepening your own personal practice. Through standing back from your everyday routine you have an opportunity to experience more fully the potential for mindfulness practice. Time spent in silent practice has the potential to lead to a greater awareness of yourself in all sorts of ways and enable you to see more closely what is essential in your life.
Running from 9.30 am to 3.30pm the day begins with an introduction and an opportunity to ask questions followed by a series of guided mediation practices including sitting, gentle movement and walking practices. There is time to share experiences at the end of the day.
