About Mindfulness Half Day Retreat

This mini retreat is designed to open up our awareness of our body, mind and selves, and immerse into our present moment experience. Sessions are suitable for anyone who is looking to engage in meditation and mindfulness, and who wishes to spend a little time out their busy weeks opening up their awareness to the here and now.

Practicing mindfulness meditations can be extremely beneficial in reducing stress, building resilience, and gaining a sense of balance.

What to expect?
• A very short introduction to mindfulness
• Practicing a variety of meditations and mindful movements including QiGong and walking
• Embracing periods of quite to savour the present moment and focus
• Meeting like-minded people and practicing mindfulness together

For testimonials and photos of previous retreats, please visit www.kay-young.co.uk

I’ll be there from 8:30am to set up and the mini-retreat will begin at 9am.

The venue is Young Enterprise Scotland and directions to the venue will be given by email prior to the retreat.

The retreat will take place indoors and outdoors – all depending on the weather and what best suits the practices. The lovely venue has central heating and is nice and cosy if it’s cold or wet out. They also have a fantastic area outside which is covered if warm but raining. We’ll certainly try to do the mindful movements - Qi Gong and walking - outdoors at least …weather permitting!

If this event is sold out but you would like to be added to the reserve list, please email - info@kay-young.co.uk

Why is this event free? (other than booking free)
This workshop is part of the Knows No Bounds social enterprise initiative and runs on a Pay It Forward System.

That means:

Your place has been paid for by someone who’s taking part in a previous session

To book your place, all you need to pay is a small booking fee

There’s an opportunity for you to donate money on the day in cash into a donation box

This is to ‘pay it forward’ to someone else - give them the opportunity to take part in future

This will allow the event to go to other areas and spread this further and wider

The amount is up to you – please pay what you can, and what you are able to.

A recommended amount is £20.00, but for guidance only – more or less is fine.
