Mindful Self-Compassion UK

5 Day Silent MSC Retreat in Person, with Zoe Shobbrook-Fisher and Colette Power

An in person retreat, set in the beautiful North Warwickshire countryside. It’s an opportunity to explore and deepen into Mindfulness and Self-Compassion (MSC) practice. The emphasis will be on developing the resource of self-kindness and self-care through an exploration of mindfulness, loving-kindness, compassion, joy and equanimity.

Within a container of mostly silent retreat there will be guided practices as well as ample opportunity for you to deepen into your own experience within the supportive context of the group. The first evening will be an orientation session. Days 1 to 4 of the retreat include early morning practice before breakfast followed by morning, afternoon and evening sessions with a spacious lunch period. The retreat will include gentle movement, outdoor time and time to connect in smaller groups. There will also be free time to rest and relax. Zoe and Colette are highly experienced retreat leaders and teacher trainers.

This retreat is for those who have either completed a Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) or an 8 week Mindfulness course (e.g MBSR, MBCT, MBCT-L). You may have completed the MSC course over eight weeks or in an intensive (usually five-day) format.  This retreat is equally open to practitioners and mindfulness or MSC teachers.

The retreat meets the requirement to have sat a five-day, silent, teacher-led retreat before taking the MSC Teacher Training course AND meets BAMBA requirements for an annual retreat. 

It would be helpful if you have a regular practice of mindfulness and/or loving-kindness/self-compassion meditation. Previous retreat experience of at least one day is required but, if not, please apply and we’ll discuss your application with you.
