Five-day Mindfulness Retreat:
A residential retreat providing space for deeper exploration of mindfulness practice

27-31 January 2018 at Trigonos

This five-day residential retreat at Trigonos in North Wales offers a safe framework for entering more deeply into a period of sustained mindfulness practice. Drawing on the familiar practices, including enquiry into experience, and on didactic input from the facilitators, participants can spend time in silence and begin to rely on their own skills as they become more self-supporting. Guidance and advice will be offered to support the unfolding of your practice. Facilitators will offer short talks to provide context and direction for practice.

The retreat programme will include time to enjoy the beautiful surrounding countryside in the afternoons.


Who is the retreat for?

This retreat is suitable for people who have participated in weekend retreats, who have a regular mindfulness practice and who are used to practising from time to time without guidance.
