Graduate Day Retreats
Graduate retreats are led by Ed Halliwell and offer those who already have a mindfulness practice a chance to reconnect with and explore them more deeply. We'll share experiences with others who've completed the course, looking at the obstacles to practise and ways to integrate it into daily life. We'll explore some of the emotions and themes that can arise in meditation, such as kindness to ourselves, and facing our fears. Step out of the 'doing' mode for a day, and remember what it's like to just 'be'.
Who is this for?
This retreat day is for those who already have a mindfulness practice and have completed a teacher led 8-week mindfulness course. If you are unsure whether this is right for you please do not hesistate to contact us.

We hold our day retreats in the spacious Jacobean Hall with views overlooking Cuckfield's stunning 13th Century Church and the South Downs. Parking is available.

This is a non-residential day retreat, however there is a variety of accomodation nearby some within a short walking distance.
