This day retreat is for MBSR graduates. If you haven't done the MBSR course yet, have a look at the MBSR page to find a course near you.

 

Every three months Openground hosts a Day of Mindfulness, which as well as being an integral part of the MBSR course each term, is also available for past participants.

The quarterly Day of Mindfulness is an opportunity for people who have done the course, and the teachers of the course, to come together to spend a day practicing meditation. Over the course of the day, we will spend most of the time in silence, and some time sharing our experience. You will be led through various meditations including sitting, walking, and stretching. There will also be time spent in the beautiful surrounds ... light, birds and trees.

This day of meditation training provides time and space for focused practice which can refresh mindfulness skills and strengthen ongoing practice at home.

Very grateful for it!

Why attend the Urban Retreat Day?

Refresh your mindfulness practice

Mindfulness is not a good idea; it is a practice.  And we all know it very easily slips away, without support. Sustained, restful practice over the day will deepen your sense of presence and focus and remind you what you got from the course.

Rest and restore

The space, quiet time and good company will enable you to dissolve stress and holding and restore your energy for life.  Unless we deliberately take time out, our lives can become filled with autopilot reactivity.

Take in the good

In any moment, there are good things to orient towards and experience, but these are so often missed in a busy and demanding life, with all the roles we fulfil.  During this day, let go of an orientation of 'doing' and 'managing' and embrace moments of ease, support, delight and stillness.
