About Me

Mindfulness Practice Day

 the first in-person since lockdown 


Saturday 28th May from 10 am - 4.30 pm


 Maidstone, ME16 0EY


This is a rare opportunity to come together and practice in a small group and reconnect with your Mindfulness practice and with others in the Mindfulness community, using both indoor and outdoor spaces.

We will still be careful, observing COVID precautions and I ask you to take a lateral flow test beforehand. The number of participants is also limited to 6. Therefore, if you are interested in joining us, don't delay in booking your place.


We will be exploring the theme throughout the day with formal, guided meditation, informal Mindfulness practice and dialogue. How do we keep our Mindfulness practice alive and fresh? How can we foster a way of being present in our body and mind, appreciating each moment and also linking into the space and connecting with people around us in everyday life?

We will have time to let the theme settle during sitting, walking and movement meditation.

Large parts of the day, including the lunch break, will be in silence in order to be able to focus on our experience from moment-to-moment. In the afternoon there will be an opportunity to have a private conversation with me about your Mindfulness practice and any related questions you might want to bring up.

Fee:  £60 (concs. available)

Stress Reduction through Mindful Awareness Course

Time to Be

A residential 3-Day Mindfulness Retreat

at Emerson College, East Sussex


April 28th – May 1st, 2022


With Barbara Hussong and Chantek McNeilage



We have great pleasure in finally being able to announce and invite you to attend this 3-day retreat in-person! We offer you the opportunity to practise together in a group, supported by guided meditations, movements, readings and sharing. Many of us will have experienced a lot of difficulties and challenges during the last months and years.

 

 Let us come together and immerse ourselves in practice with ‘Time to Be’. This will be an opportunity for 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 and restrictions.


Each day there will be lightly guided practices and a talk or theme given by one of the facilitators including time to share your experience. It is important to participate in the entire retreat.


Emerson College fulfil all the current precautions with regard to COVID regulations and offer single rooms. As it stands now, we would require that you to take a Lateral Flow Test before your arrival. The group room is spacious and allows for good ventilation. We will update you nearer the time with the current precautions according to guidelines.


These 3 days can count towards the 5-day retreat requirements for the Good Practice Guidelines & BAMBA,


Fee: £365



Fee includes all teaching, accommodation and meals. 

We are happy to offer some concessions for those who have reduced funds at this time.
