     How does Compassion enable transformation? Where does suffering come from? What is it that makes us happy? How can we live ethically in a way that supports personal and collective well-being?

    During this Silent Retreat, we will be exploring the theme of "Mindfulness and Compassion" and practicing the foundational teachings of Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction (MBSR) including Mindful Movement in a 6 night silent residential retreat format. 

    Retreat practice is a vital way to nourish our personal meditation practice, which is life enhancing for everyone, and particularly important for those who work with mindfulness-based interventions.

    The Retreat is an opportunity to renew and deepen your practice of Mindfulness meditation and living fully in each moment in an area of outstanding natural beauty. The Retreat also meets the CPD requirements of the Best Practice Guidelines for MBSR Teachers and is appropriate for anyone on a Mindfulness Teacher Training Pathway, as well as active Mindfulness Teachers. 

    Retreat details and Schedule -

    The Retreat will emphasize quieting the mind, opening the heart, and developing clarity and depth of practice within a supportive community. We will be engaging in times of guided silent practice - sitting and walking meditations with sessions of Mindful Movement, combined with a spirit of Kindly Awareness.

    This will be interwoven with time during the afternoon/eveninges when we will have short study groups looking at "Mindfulness and Compassion"

    Compassion

    What is compassion, and why do we need it? How can we develop compassion for ourselves, for others and the wider world? What gets in the way? Some writers claim that a lack of compassion is the cause of humankind’s greatest challenges. This CPD programme explores the idea that the cultivation of compassion for self, others and society are interconnected and integral to the health of people and planet.  Over three afternoon sessions we will explore:

    Self- Compassion

    Understanding where suffering comes from, and how life is shaped by inner and outer challenges and vulnerabilities. Cultivating mindfulness of emotions, honouring pain, and dealing with difficult emotions. Developing interior resources, and practising self-compassion and loving-kindness, helping to transform difficulties into lasting strengths.

    Compassion for Others

    Becoming centred in your own being and establishing healthy boundaries. Recognizing our interdependence with others, and feeling already connected. Exploring the generous heart. Understanding neuronal mechanisms of empathy and compassion and the differences between them. Giving and receiving compassion.  Developing empathy and compassion skills. 

    Compassion for Wider World / Planet 

    Understanding our relationships with the wider world / system. Developing equanimity and compassion without getting burned out.  Feeling a profound sense of interconnectedness and oneness with people and nature. Developing an increasingly unconditional love for all beings. Compassion as service for a caring economy and putting values into action. 

    Sharing Circles

    We will also facilitate sharing circles, where you will have the opportunity to connect with others who are committed to mindfulness in their personal and professional lives, so that we can draw support, inspiration and encouragement from each other. Individual meetings will also be available, enabling you to check in with the teacher, discuss your practice and ask any questions you may have.. 

    We will also be practicing silence during meals and informal periods.
