We offer mindfulness meditation retreats based on the practices associated with Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), a programme for reducing stress developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center. Our retreats are residential and in the UK. They are suitable for those coming to mindfulness practice for the first time, as well as providing space for practitioners who'd like to deepen their meditation experience. We also offer non-residential 8-week mindfulness courses and workshops in London and Sussex.
Please note: Our upcoming 2014 retreats are fully booked but places do sometimes become available and you can join the waiting list via our booking page. Our 2015 dates will be published shortly. Join our mailing list to receive further information.
