Mindfulness and Self-Compassion Weekend Retreat
6 Sept 2019 – 8 Sept 2019
The Fintry Trust, Brook, near Godalming in Surrey
with Zoe Shobbrook-Fisher
What to expect
This weekend retreat provides a rare opportunity to take yourself away from your daily setting and really give yourself being nourished and refreshed in a supported and kindly environment. The retreat offers a blend of guided mindfulness and self-compassion practices which support participants in learning to relate more skillfully and wholeheartedly to their experience – whatever may be going on in life. Periods of silent practice and times to share reflections with others are woven into the retreat timetable. The spacious weekend format also incorporates opportunities to take advantage of the natural environment, which lends itself to relaxing in the beautiful setting of Fintry.
“I really found the way you taught to be very easy to understand – things that I’ve known or tried before have not ‘gone in’ like they have this time – thank you so much!“ retreat participant July 2018
Who is the retreat for?
Participants are likely to have completed an 8-week mindfulness course (eg MBSR, MBCT, Breathworks) and / or practice mindfulness on a regular basis. They may also have taken a Mindful Self-Compassion course (either over 8-weeks or in the 5-day residential format), though this is not a pre-requisite to participating in the retreat. Please get in touch if you are unsure whether this retreat is right for you.
