Deepening your practice
Special 1 day retreat training course to deepen your mindfulness practice and knowledge
1 day mindfulness retreat with Dr. Walsh
CANCELLED due to COVID-19
This 1 day retreat is designed for people who have some experience of mindfulness and want a deepening experience (for example, people who have completed at least one level of Mindfulness with Dr. Walsh short course or an equivalent). It aims to enhance your ability to apply mindfulness to the challenges of your daily life.
This workshop will use action methods of learning. These methods create an immediate live experience of some of the more difficult-to-grasp concepts that are so important for an effective mindfulness practice. Some of these methods will be derived from Dr Walsh's many years of experience running family constellation workshops (read more about Dr. Walsh's work in constellation here).
The retreat will focus on:
How acceptance and a nonjudgmental stance can make you more effective in the world
How to approach difficult feelings and experiences without being overwhelmed by them
Precise tuning in to body sensations
Developing genuine compassion for yourself and others without increasing your vulnerability to abuse.
Requirement: completion of at least 1 level of Mindfulness with Dr. Walsh short course or equivalent training elsewhere (e.g. MBSR, MBCR or MiCBT course, or 10 day Vipassana retreat).
