A 2-day Online Mindfulness Retreat 2021

Friday evening 30th April – Sunday afternoon 2nd May

Led by Barbara Hussong and Chantek McNeilage

We have pleasure in announcing and inviting you to attend this 2-day online retreat, offering the opportunity to practice together, supported by guided meditations, movements, readings and sharing. Many of us will have experienced a lot of difficulties and challenges during the last months. It is time now, to come together for a renewal of our energies, our spirit and our practice. Spring is emerging, time now to tap into the rhythm of the changing seasons and transition out of winter, harnessing the forces of new growth and development, opening to renewal with courage and kindness.

Over these two days we will have time to deepen our practice and resource ourselves together, through a mix of practices supporting renewal and balance. The practices will be lightly guided allowing us to open into our own inner inquiry and embodied grounded connection. 

Each day there will be a talk or theme given by one of the facilitators and a time to share your experience. It is important to participate in the entire retreat. The retreat will be held on the Zoom platform and we encourage you to have your video camera on where possible. You will need enough space for movement, lying down, standing and sitting practices. Please consider that the home environment is conducive for you to settle into a retreat.

(For those, needing to fulfil the retreat requirements for the Good Practice Guidelines & BAMBA, these 2 days can count towards the 5-day retreat requirement.)

If you have any further questions, please do get in touch with either Barbara or Chantek ([email protected]) via email.

Fees: Between £80 – £120

Concessions available to those who have reduced funds at this time.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Biodynamic Psychotherapy

stimulates and activates the person’s physical and psychological self-healing potential, bringing about a greater integration of body and mind, for dealing with depression, anxiety, loss of meaning, psychosomatic problems, etc.


Biodynamic Massage

is used either separately or as an integral part of Biodynamic Psychotherapy. Specifically designed massage techniques help balance and harmonize your energy.


Therapeutic Massage

using oils, stimulates the circulation and releases tension in the affected areas e.g. pain arising from neck and shoulder stiffness, muscular backache and tension headaches.


Reiki Healing

the subtlest level of healing, balances the body-mind energy flow. During treatment (in which you remain fully clothed) the practitioner lays her hands on areas of the body to generate healing.
