Mindfulness New Year Retreat Mindful Living and Wise Attention, a year of living mindfully.
This one day reflective workshop draws upon the world's great meditative and wisdom traditions to present an engaging and practical programme with the invitation to wake up wholeheartedly to the abundantly, richly textured fabric of everyday life as our primary spiritual teacher. Following the age-old tradition of taking time at the beginning of a new year and reflect on what really matters, this workshop is about starting anew and moving into the New Year with vision, focus and intention. The facilitator skilfully blends the meditative traditions into an easy and humours programme through mindfulness, the practice of seeing every action as an invitation to awaken meditative inquiry, wise attention, intention and resolution. The participants on this retreat will receive monthly newsletters to help sustain the practice of living mindfully throughout the year with inspirational daily quotations, tips and recommendations to live life with full intention, self-compassion and wise attention.
