mind-body healing mindfulness course
In this 3-day residential mindfulness secular retreat, participants will deepen the awareness of the link between the body and the mind. The retreat will focus on applying mindfulness and wisdom to heal both the Mind (thoughts and emotions) and the Body (Aches, pain and lethargy). The retreat facilitates an examination and reflection on the patterns of our own mind, emotions, feelings, thoughts and actions. This awareness enables us to gently interrupt patterns of self-criticism, unhelpful thoughts and actions.
Duration: 3 Days (Overseas Residential)
- Deeper levels of self-acceptance
