Silent Sunday Retreat
August 23, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm UTC+0
What does the day consist of?
The day will comprise of several guided mindfulness practices flowing gently into one another, including sitting practices, body scanning, mindful walking, stretching, and mindful eating. I will read a few inspiring poems in between. At the beginning of the day, we will spend a bit of time setting the intentions for the day, and at the end of the day, there will be time for reflections and sharing for those who feel like it. Other parts of the day will be silent to facilitate a deepening of our meditation practice and taking a real break from the business of everyday life, which can stop us from really connecting with our inner self.
Who is this day for?
Everyone is welcome – Those who have an interest in mindfulness and would like to try it out before booking a place on the mindfulness course or those who have already completed some mindfulness courses or workshops or already have a regular mindfulness practice and want to experience a deeper level of meditation through a continuous few hours-long practice. So, if you have no prior mindfulness experience it’s not a problem, just let me know in case you may need additional instructions.
How to prepare?
Inform your family or flatmates that you will be in silence for a few hours and ask them to leave you in peace and not ask questions throughout the day. Make sure you are comfortable and have somewhere to sit and lay down for different practices. It is best to wear comfortable clothing and some layers nearby to satisfy your personal needs for warmth or coolness as these may be changing throughout the day.
