      Mindfulness Day Retreat for UoE Staff and Students.

      All Day Retreats for UoE Staff and Students are offered on every second Saturday of each month (except September one) throughout the academic year at the Chaplaincy Centre. Retreat is a wonderful opportunity for learning and directly experiencing mindfulness practices, consolidating your already established practices, cultivating shared understanding and wisdom from which we can all learn, grow and be nourished. Our retreats are for everyone, from complete beginner to advanced practitioner.  WHO IS IT FOR?   The Retreat is open for everyone at the UoE, interested in mindfulness training. You do not require any previous experience of mindfulness meditation to be on this retreat. They are for people who would like to be familiar with mindfulness and offer an opportunity to step aside from our everyday lives to: learn new mindfulness meditation practices, deepen our mindfulness practice as a way of life, connect with others who practice mindfulness, nourish ourselves and taking time to be with ourselves.  FOR ALL DAY LONG RETREATS: Arrive well before the start time (11 am) Most of the retreat will be in Silence with the space towards the end to speak from the silence. Bring vegetarian lunch (extra portions) to share. (No Meat/Fish)  Bring your own meditation gear (if you have one) however we do provide some.
