Our continued practice workshops are an ideal next step for those who have completed a mindfulness course, offering an opportunity to maintain, deepen or reconnect with your meditation practice, to dedicate time and to come to value simply ‘being’.

This day encourages you to tune into what you need for your own self-care. There will be guided meditations to breath kindness into yourself, to bring compassion to others and an opportunity to create our own wishes for wellbeing laying the ground for Loving Kindness.

Practice Day Overview

These days include a series of guided meditations, periods of silence and gentle exercises supported by an experienced facilitator. Gently guiding you through the day, time is allowed for discussion, relaxation and on-line connection with old and new friends. These practice days have a theme that focuses the day towards particular practices that nourish your inner being and inspire your continued journey.

Join us for the day and an opportunity to…

  • Relax, refresh and rejuvenate yourself
  • Learn and experience new meditations and mindfulness practices
  • Nourish, cultivate and develop your continued mindfulness practice
  • Deepen your meditation practice and strengthen the skills learnt during your course
  • Develop your mindfulness and compassion skills to use in your daily life helping you become and remain calm, relaxed, focused and present.

Who is this day for?

This practice day is designed to support our course participants and graduates, or those with an established meditation practice. Recommended for current course delegates as well as for past delegates whose practice has waned or as a way to nurture and support your ongoing journey.

This retreat is not suitable for beginners, but we do offer a range of alternative events (including taster sessions and introductory workshops) which are ideal for those exploring mindfulness for the first time. Please check out our eventbrite page for more details.

Please contact the course instructor to discuss any questions or concerns you may have regarding attendance on practice days. They will be happy to discuss your particular circumstances and how you may best be supported during the day. If a practice day is not felt to be suitable at this time alternatives suggestions will be offered to support your continued mindfulness practice.

Please note, certificates of attendance are available upon request.
