Feeling frazzled?  Suffering from information overload? Need space to just be?

This resourcing mindfulness retreat is an opportunity to "wake up" out of automatic habits and reactions, to savour the present moment and enjoy life more. It will reignite your practice and is a place to cultivate personal wellbeing, to help you face any potential events or challenges in the months ahead.  

We will provide you with a weekend immersion into mindful practice with periods of silence (you could call this a personal MOT or service) to

  • substantially deepen your own practice
  • enable you to connect with a personal vision of your purpose and how you wish to live your own life.

You will be able to consciously reset your inner speed limit to ensure this is sustainable; you will also experience a variety of mindfulness practices (formal and informal) including mindful movement and yoga.

The retreat will take place from 19-21 October 2018 (starting on the evening of 19th) at Bore Place near Sevenoaks in Kent.  This is a peaceful and inspiring organic farm, retreat and conference centre, within easy reach of London (30 minutes by train).  We will spend our time in the beautiful and relaxing Tudor manor house and grounds. The food is amazing – you will eat well and sleep well!

As we will be spending some extended periods in silence, this retreat is not suitable for those who have not practicised mindfulness before. It is a pre-requisite that you have already participated in formal mindfulness training.

This event will be delivered by Damion Wonfor and Tessa McEwan. Both are experienced mindfulness teachers and follow the Good Practice Guidelines for UK mindfulness teachers.

Damion and Tessa have a brilliant dynamic and work very well together. The retreat gave me time to contemplate how I’m living my life. There was a great atmosphere throughout the course – it felt like we were in a peaceful “bubble”, particularly in the sitting room around the fire.  This was helped by the lovely mix of people – I enjoyed my conversations with all the other attendees. The early morning Tai Chi and yoga sessions were a highlight. There was an arc to the weekend - I enjoyed being more present, and learnt to be less judgmental of myself and my thoughts.
