One Day Silent Retreat with Kathryn O’Halloran
Suitable as a Renewal Day for past participants of MBSR/MBCT courses & to others with mindfulness experience
This one day silent retreat will be fully guided and include a variety of mindfulness practices such as sitting meditation, lying down body scan, gentle yoga style stretching and mindful walking.
DATE: Sunday 12th July 2015
VENUE: Novara Centre, 11 Fitzwilliam Terrace, Strand Road, Bray Co Wicklow
TIME: 10am – 4pm
Silence is observed by participants for most of the day and each practice will be fully guided by me. The silence is not intended to be punitive or serious but to be peaceful. In this silent and mindful environment awareness sharpens and we can really get to know ourselves. We will come out of silence about an hour before the end of the day and people can take some time to share their experience if they so wish.
