Weekend (5pm Friday to 3pm Sunday - view arrival time options)
with Mellissa O'Brien
“Within you there is a stillness and a sanctuary to which you can retreat at any time and be yourself.” – Herman Hesse
‘Weekends of Mindfulness’ are an opportunity to spend the whole weekend practicing yoga, meditation and mindfulness with a community of like-minded people.
An immersion weekend like this is an opportunity to experience the life-enhancing benefits of living truly in the present and offers a quality of experience that deepens over time. When we allow ourselves this time, we gain insight into how we connect with life in the moment.
Over the course of the weekend you’ll experience a blend of mindfulness practices including yoga, pranayama, sitting meditation, walking meditation, body scan meditation, mindful eating, mindful listening, candle gazing, and more.
This semi-silent retreat is a nurturing, enlightening and rejuvenating weekend that will leave you feeling more conscious and connected when you return to daily life.
You will experience:
• A variety of mindfulness practices throughout the day
• A daily teaching to support practice
• Periods of silence
• Connecting with a community of like-minded people
This retreat is suitable for those who have had some exposure to meditation, mindfulness or yoga. If you have previously done a mindfulness course/retreat, are a yogi, meditator or mindfulness practitioner, you will particularly love this opportunity for pure practice.
“It is one thing to talk eloquently on the subject of mindfulness and it is another thing to actually practice mindfulness. Melli is one of those select few who walks her talk.”
