In-Person Retreat: We Are Connected

May 20, 2023 @ 9:30 am - May 21, 2023 @ 3:00 pm BST

£125 – £245


What is it to feel connected, to be in touch with ourselves and everything around us?

Andrea and Mj have created this special in-person retreat to meet a felt need for people to reconnect with their practice, intentions and other like-minded people in the mindfulness community.

As Breathworks’ longest standing trainers and much loved teachers, Andrea and Mj are known for their wise and kind approach, as well as their ability to create and hold a warm and welcoming space for meaningful experiences to unfold.

The weekend will be a celebration of the possibilities of shared practice. You will explore what connection really means in all its layers. This includes how to steady and anchor yourself, the relationship with your own internal experience, your sense of each other as fellow companions, as well as fragile relationships that exist in the wider community around us.

The retreat days will be well paced with guided meditations, practices, group discussion and opportunities to pause and reflect. The retreat will be limited to 20 people to foster a close-knit group environment.


– A weekend to pause and tune in across two days of intentional practice
– Meet and make meaningful connections with like-minded people in the mindfulness community
– Develop a deeper sense of connection, both to the present moment and those around you
– Benefit from the joys and deeper resonance of shared in-person practice
– A chance for those visiting to explore the historical and vibrant city of Manchester, with the flexibility of choosing your own accommodation


Ticket prices for this event range between £125 – £245. The Breathworks charity aims to make mindfulness accessible for everyone, which is why they offer multiple pricing options to those wishing to join us. They ask participants to pay the highest sustainable amount that they can, so that they can offer places at a reduced cost to those less able to afford a place.

A limited number of bursary places (£75 Bursary Rate) are reserved for individuals with significant financial barriers that limits them from affording the Concessionary Rate.
