Mindful Self-Compassion UK

5-day silent MSC retreat, In-person, Iceland, with Ali Lambie

Our next 5-day silent retreat will be held at the gorgeous Solheimar retreat centre in Iceland from Sunday 12th to Thursday 16th June 2022.

The venue

The retreat will be held at Sólheimar in Grímsnesi, Iceland. Solheimar is a world renowned sustainable community known for its artistic and ecological atmosphere. It is a small village set out in the countryside, characterized by vegetation, open common spaces and buildings that nicely co-exist with the landscape.

The teachers

The retreat will be taught by Vanessa Hope & Ali Lambie who are both Certified Teachers and Teacher Trainers of Mindful Self-Compassion and regularly teach MSC courses and retreats in the UK and further afield.


£1,145.00 which includes double en suite room and all meals.

The retreat meets the requirement to have sat a five-day, silent, teacher-led retreat.

Who is the retreat for?

The retreat is for those who want to develop or deepen their capacity to relate more kindly to themselves and their experience, through immersing themselves in continuity of practice in the retreat setting.

It would be helpful if you have already experienced a silent retreat of at least one day (or the half-day mindful self-compassion retreat), but if not, please apply, and we’ll discuss your application with you.

The retreat meets the requirement to have sat a five-day, silent, teacher-led retreat.

This retreat is an opportunity to deepen your experience of both Mindfulness and Self-Compassion. It meets the requirements to have sat a five-day teacher led silent retreat.
After an orientation session the retreat will be held largely in silence and will consist of a range of guided sitting, lying, movement and walking practices both in and out of doors, organised around the themes of Mindfulness, Equanimity, Loving-Kindness, Compassion and Joy. There will be plenty of time for self-care in between the group sessions. In the evenings the teachers will offer some reflections on the theme for the following day and at the start of each day there will be an optional early morning practice session. There will be two opportunities to meet in small groups for a time of guided reflection on your experience.

How will this retreat help to deepen self-compassion?

The emphasis of the retreat will be on looking after ourselves, and on nourishing our compassion both through our practice, and through time for relaxation. We will be spending plenty of practice time outside.
