Need a break? Need to decompress and reconnect with nature?
Mindfulness is a path to balance and well-being. To be mindful is to be truly alive. This retreat offers a bespoke personal practice experience, as well as a breathing space where you can simply be. Combining Mindfulness meditation, yoga, outdoors experience and time to just relax, our team of qualified teachers will guide you through five days tailored to your individual needs. Whether you are new to Mindfulness or wish to take your next steps, this programme supports you in cultivating presence, inner resilience and joy.
Daily one-to-one Mindfulness sessions include meditations, exercises and reflections. We work with the core practices of sitting and walking meditation, encouraging kindness and self-compassion. You learn how to bring Mindfulness into every-day life, and a personalised practice plan will be developed to support your ongoing practice at home. Yoga sessions are aimed at strengthening your mindfulness of the breath and body and clarity of mind, guiding you into deeper embodiment. And finally, enjoy going wild with a guided outdoors experience in Scotland’s fine scenery.
There will be plenty of time to relax and unwind and to go for strolls through the fields and woods on our doorstep. Enjoy the nourishing environment and warm, friendly atmosphere of Newbold House as well as lovingly home-made, wholesome food.
Mindfulness retreats are available all throughout the year based on the availability of accommodation and teachers.
