Online Retreat for MA Members
“Listen to silence. It has so much to say.” — Rumi
Retreat offers a wonderful opportunity to deepen our mindfulness practice, step out of our daily routines, and recharge our batteries. This five-day retreat with lead tutor Jacky Seery will include guided practices and teachings on mindfulness, although the focus will be on our personal practice. It will be assumed that participants have some previous experience of mindfulness or meditation, so the retreat is not suitable for complete beginners.
We will be exploring inner space in our practice and keeping our practice fresh, so we don’t fall into a rut with it and allowing space for what is really here.
Silence can be a wonderful support to us settling our minds, and we will be incorporating periods of “noble silence” into the retreat, although the extent that we can engage with this will vary between us, depending on our personal circumstances. For mindfulness teachers, this retreat will meet BAMBA requirements for an annual retreat; in this case you should ensure that you maintain silence for a minimum of 50% of waking hours.
This retreat is open to all members of the Mindfulness Association and to join the MA Membership please click here. We will encompass sessions from the membership weekend beginning on the evening of Friday 10th March and continue from Sunday afternoon until Wednesday 15th March 2023 in the afternoon.
Participants wishing to make this their BAMBA CPD retreat are recommended to attend only three teaching sessions over the course of the weekend so as to focus more on practice and to maintain suggested periods of silence in order to meet BAMBA retreat requirements.
The retreat timings are as follows:
Friday 10th March – 7pm – 8:30pm
Saturday 11 March – Tuesday 14 March – 8am – 6pm.
Wednesday 15 March – 8am – 3pm.
