Mindful Self-Compassion Retreat: envision 2020

Start the new year with a clear vision of how you want really live your ‘one wild and precious’ life. Sometimes we get so busy and caught up that we have no time to reflect on where we are and where we are going, we need to take time out. Preferably in a peaceful beautiful place, like Drumalis Retreat Centre, Larne, Co. Antrim.

For our 2020 Mindful Self Compassion (MSC) retreat we will devote time to kind and compassionate mindfulness practices, relaxation, movement, good food, timeout in the beautiful outdoors and time indoors to reflect and plan for the coming year.

It’s hard to believe that two days in Larne can reset your life for the year ahead but it really is possible, please read what people said about previous retreats, here at the end of this retreat description.

Arrive 10am on Saturday morning for home made scones and tea. All refreshments, vegetarian lunches and dinner and bread and breakfast in comfortable, clean, hotel-like accomodation provided.

All rooms are single and ensuite – however it is possible to request a double or twin to share with a partner or friend. Just let me know when booking and I will allocate appropriate room for you.

On the saturday night on these visioning retreats I usually show an inspiring movie, yet to be determined, watch this space.

Our thoughts become our reality – let’s take time to choose them carefully this year. It’s going to be a fun and special weekend, don’t miss it. : )

Check out the at the location here: http://www.drumalis.co.uk

It is possible to stay on the Friday night B&B if you wish.

What people said about my previous MSC retreats: “Great experience! Peaceful setting, couldn’t have been better! You really helped me understand mindfulness and ‘come home’. Edith Doran
“It was really lovely, I genuinely enjoyed all of it. It helped me relax completely. I want to explore this way of being more. My room was beautiful. The views over the garden were stunning.” Melissa Joyce
“Really appreciated the whole experience which was very calming and meditative. I liked the peaceful room, gardens and staff.” Eric Morrison
“I liked the mixture of style of meditaion/mindful practice, the permission to opt out, no pressure, no judgement. Loved the whole programme options and choices. Private room, very clean, lovely location. It was wonderful nuturing and supportive, thank you Bridgeen.” Julie
“I loved all of it. It came at really opportune time in my life, the loving kindess was especially great. The rooms were well appointed and comfortable. The surroundings very beautiful.” Terri
“I liked the space and time to stop and be and to remember who I am and what I have.Beautiful setting, calm and peaceful. It was wonderful, calming, steading, space, time, self-care, lovely group, lots of variety and chance to come home.” Pauline

“I enjoyed the guided meditations as it helped me to ‘switch off’, it has inspired me to get back to this practice. The setting and grounds were beautiful. The rooms were very comfortable.” Clare

“I liked all of the program, loved the time given to walking and private time. I found the silence difficult at the start during meals but felt it was beneficial. I liked the food and the clean tidy room and peaceful ambiance. Enjoyed the experience, it helped me to relax and taught me to love and be kind to myself so I can do this for others.” Tracey Sproule.

You can start collecting images and magazines now for your vision board (though I will also supply these!).

We also do a really cool fire ceremony so you are advised to bring warm outdoor clothing!

July Mindful Self-Compassion Workshop

Give yourself a mental holiday come along to this lovely July afternoon workshop.

Mindful self-compassion is the foundation of emotional healing—being aware in the present moment when we’re struggling with feelings of inadequacy, despair, confusion, and other forms of stress (mindfulness) and responding with kindness and understanding (self-compassion). Mindful self-compassion also means holding difficult emotions—fear, anger, sadness, shame and self-doubt—and ourselves, in loving awareness, leading to greater ease and well-being in our daily lives.

Mindful self-compassion can be learned by anyone. It’s the practice of repeatedly evoking good will toward ourselves especially when we’re suffering—cultivating the same desire that all living beings have to live happily and free from suffering. And as the Dalai Lama says, self-compassion is the first step toward compassion for others.

The workshop is suitable for everyone from complete beginners to experienced practitioners. It fun, practical and experiential. I’ve been running this workshop for five years and people regularly re-attend. 🙂

Sometimes it will be possible to transfer your ticket – subject to availability. Workshops in Winter months tend to sell out so transfer is limited, summer workshops usually have more availability.

It is possible to buy a ticket as a gift, the person just needs to give the name the ticket was booked under when they check in with me on the day.

Thank you, I look forward to seeing you! XX
