Quiet Reflective Space Mini-Retreat
Are you craving some quiet time to yourself before the new week starts? Do you want to start the week feeling relaxed, grounded and focused? On a late Sunday afternoon, these mindfulness-based sessions are a chance to come back to yourself, to take stock and orient yourself positively towards the week ahead. In an atmosphere of quiet relaxation, acceptance and ease, we can kick off our 'doing shoes' for a while, quieten the chatter of the mind and drop down into a deeper experience of ourselves. From this place, we can more easily tune into our natural wisdom, strength and capacities. We can then start the week with a clearer sense of how to support our positive intentions and personal wellbeing. Venue The sessions take place at Benslow Music, a beautiful and peaceful building with glorious gardens, being an additional element in creating a quiet space for calm reflection. What happens? This mindful meetup offers: a short introductory talk, a guided meditation, time for personal reflection, gentle movement (if you wish), mindful inquiry and support and intention setting. There will be no pressure to do anything that does not feel right for you. Everything is simply an invitation. This is time for you to relax and be with yourself and others with gentle kindness and curiosity. As well as periods of silence, in one of the spaces there will be a soundtrack of chilled music. If you sign up, you will be invited to suggest favourite tracks for the playlist.
