Nourishing Winter Day Retreat
“From time to time, to remind ourselves to relax and be peaceful, we may wish to set aside some time for a retreat, a day of mindfulness, when we can walk slowly, smile, drink tea with a friend, enjoy being together as if we are the happiest people on Earth.” Thich Nhat Hanh
Join us on Saturday 9 December 2023 from 9:30am for tea, coffee and scones a full day of self-care and self-compassion.
Our retreat will be held in the Dunadry Hotel’s ‘Garden Room’ which as the name suggests is in the beautiful gardens of the hotel, which has its own set of peacocks roaming about!
Especially in December – things can get hectic for all of us, as much as it is the season of joy and good will very frequently we can all get so busy and caught up that we have no time to reflect on where we are, what we’re doing, and where we are going. We need to take time out. Preferably in a peaceful beautiful place, like the Dunadry Hotel where all our needs will be catered for.
This will be a true day of rest. We will be served hot soup, sandwiches and wraps (all vegetarian) for lunch. There will be lots of space, time, and silence with guided self-compassion practices to support your restoration. And we will end the day with a nice cup of tea/coffee and some gratitude practice.
Throughout the day, Bridgeen will guide you through various mindfulness and self-compassion practices and exercises that will help you cultivate a deeper sense of self-awareness and self-acceptance. You’ll learn how to be kinder to yourself, and how to let go of negative self-talk.
It’s a real chance to deepen your practice. The schedule includes meditation, a mindful sense and savour outdoor walks and deep relaxation practices incorporating self-compassion and mindfulness.
Some experience in meditation, mindfulness, and/or yoga is desirable.
Please get in touch if you have any questions.
Don’t miss out on this opportunity to connect with yourself and others in a supportive and nurturing environment. Sign up now to reserve your spot!
