In this retreat we will cover the 8 sessions of the Mindfulness MBSR course and practise gentle Yoga every day. So the retreat is suitable for everyone and will also include optional guided walks into the mountains. Come and enjoy our little oasis hidden in the sunny mountains amidst cherry orchards and almond groves, midway between Valencia and Alicante. In a welcoming group atmosphere you will experience a week full of guided activities and a lovely vegetarian Mediterranean cuisine.


THEME: This retreat in the spectacular Spanish mountains, will teach you the tools to gain more insight into yourself, and be more at ease and content through life's ups and downs. Mindfulness is about waking up to a new way of seeing things, and that’s not easy to do on your own. In this course, unlike when you study from a book or CD, you’ll be guided personally by an experienced teacher. The program is challenging and life-affirming.

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR). The programme we will be teaching is the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn and his colleagues at the University of Massachusetts Medical Centre. It is designed to help participants learn new ways of handling difficult physical sensations, feelings and moods. The program consists of more than 30 hours of classes during the week. Highly participatory, supportive, and structured, this program will provide you with:

  • guided instruction in mindfulness meditation practices;
  • gentle stretching and mindful yoga;
  • morning practice sessions;
  • group dialogue and mindful communication
  • exercises to enhance awareness in everyday life;
  • individually tailored instruction;
  • a workbook with daily assignments and home practice materials.

A set of Guided Meditations will be sent to the participants after the retreat, so that they can practise at home once a day, six days a week, to fully embed the learning and new patterns of behaviour. Participants will receive a Certificate of Participation and Attendance. For those seeking to become mindfulness teachers in the future, this certificate will support your application. 

YOGA: will be suitable for all and is Mindful Yoga and Yin Yoga, aiming to empower individuals towards health and well-being. It will be focusing on optimising health and well-being at every level of the body and mind. It blends the ancient wisdom of Hatha Yoga with mindfulness and modern mind-body techniques.

WALKS: We will be offering several walks into the spectacular mountains with views of the Costa Blanca coastline. All optional and lead by an experienced trainer. We have on our doorstep two spectacular walks: one down in to "Hells Gorge" and the other up onto the "Green Horse Mountain" suitable for all.

Extras:
Massage  1h. 40€
Reiki      1h. 30€

This will be a small, supportive group, max 12, with an experienced group facilitator and mindfulness teacher. Take this opportunity to spend some uninterrupted time feeding your creative spirit with like-minded people in lovely surroundings. Come and join us, you deserve it!
