Mindful Self-Compassion UK

Wise Nature – 2, 3 or 5-day MSC and Ecotherapy Retreat

When we are quiet and let our mind settle, and consciously spend time with nature, we create conditions in which ease and wellbeing can emerge.
Come and spend time on a beautiful meadow in North Norfolk with ancient trees and woodland.

In this safely held space we will:

Practise mindfulness and self-compassion to ease our minds
Engage in Ecotherapy activities to enhance and clarify our connection with ourselves, each other and the more-than-human world.
Share with each other to deepen our experience of community
Use creativity to explore and expand our understanding of our experience

Guest Teacher Katy Dunne
Monday, 10-12 noon – (like all sessions on the retreat, this session is optional)
Dance Artist and Dance Movement Psychotherapist Katy Dunne will facilitate a two hour workshop involving movement meditations, improvisation, authentic movement and creative dance. She will guide us to immerse ourselves in the more-than-human world and to be inspired by its form, shape, sounds, scents, textures and rhythms. As we move in and with the natural world, we will deepen our connection to it, to each other and to our authentic selves. No movement experience is necessary.
Facilities: There is a large rustic workshop space with a wood-burner where we can be if it is raining. We can also enjoy the lovely compost loos, hot showers and a sauna.
There is plenty of space for camping.
Busses are available to Aylsham and we can organise a lift from there.
Food: Participants are asked to bring their own food for breakfast and lunch. Those that decide to camp will share dinner together and cook on the open fire.
