What is Involved?
The intention of the one-day Mindfulness Network Community Friends (MNCF) silent retreat is to gently refreshen and deepen the practice of mindfulness exploring two valuable qualities: Wisdom and Compassion. The teachings and guided meditations are offered in a space of noble silence through sitting, lying and mindful movement.as taught in Mindfulness-Based Compassionate Living (MBCL). MBCL is recognised as a follow-on course following foundational mindfulness-based programmes (MBSR, MBCT or equivalent) by BAMBA and VMBN (the Netherlands based mindfulness teaching network).
The online silent retreat will include:
· periods of both guided and self-directed practice
· short talks
· periods of silence to enable you to connect more fully with your inner experience
· an encouragement to use the time in the morning and afternoon breaks and lunch break for self-care, and continued silent practice
