A Weekend in the Country

A Weekend in the Country


Retreat Overview :

This non-residential rural retreat offers an ideal opportunity to step back from your regular daily routine and deepen and refresh your personal mindfulness practice. It is held in the beautiful and tranquil rural setting of Newton and Bywell Community Hall, near Stocksfield, just 15 miles from Newcastle.

A two day non-residential retreat is particularly suitable as an introduction for those who have never been on a retreat before and also for more experienced practitioners, whose home commitments make it difficult to go on residential retreat. The retreat is suitable for anyone who has attended an eight-week mindfulness-based course, or for those with equivalent experience of meditation.

Over the two days, we will practise together in silence, stillness and movement using the transitions of arriving and leaving, eating, and resting as part of the retreat, helping to bring practice right into the experience of everyday life. The retreat will include guided and silent practice, with periods of walking out in the beautiful rural surroundings of Newton and Bywell Community Hall. There will be sustained periods of silence to enable increased connection with inner experience. There will also be opportunities for group exchanges and the teachers will be available to talk to people individually.

Please note it is a requirement to attend both days of the retreat.
