Course outline

This retreat is an opportunity to step out of the daily routine and be immersed in mindfulness practice. It aims to deepen our sense awareness of the mind/body, revive the intention and commitment to personal practice and orientate to a kinder way of relating to self, others and the world.

The retreat includes five full days of silence with a balance of guided practices in group, along with time each day for self-directed practice. Patricia and Vee will be available for one to one contact each afternoon should this be required. The intention is to provide a supportive holding of the silence, as well as spaciousness to experience the natural beauty and unique environment that the island has to offer.

This retreat is open to anyone who is experienced in Mindfulness practice and those who have attended an 8-week Mindfulness course with an extended period of time in silence. Also it is ideally suited to teachers and facilitators of Mindfulness courses as it meets the UK Network’s Good Practice Guidance requirement for a silent retreat. 

The facilitators, Patricia Taddei and Vee Freir, have a broad depth of personal mindfulness practice. They have previously held retreats on Holy Isle and are trained in mindfulness-based approaches including the MBSR, MBCT, MBLC and mindfulness-based psychotherapy.

The orientation of this course is entirely secular and is not affiliated to any faith tradition or religion. 

 This retreat will begin in the evening of Wednesday 25th July and depart on Wednesday 1st August in the morning.
