THEME: This retreat in the spectacular Spanish mountains, will teach you the tools to gain more insight into yourself, and be more at ease and content through life's ups and downs. Mindfulness is about waking up to a new way of seeing things, and that’s not easy to do on your own. In this course, unlike when you study from a book or CD, you’ll be guided personally by an experienced teacher. The program is challenging and life-affirming.
MINDFULNESS: for stress, anxiety and depression. The programme we typically teach is an amalgamation of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn and his colleagues at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center and the Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) course, developed by Segal, Williams and Teasdale. It is designed to help participants learn new ways of handling difficult physical sensations, feelings and moods. The program consists of more than 30 hours of classes during the week. Highly participatory, supportive, and structured, this program will provide you with:
guided instruction in mindfulness meditation practices;
gentle stretching and mindful yoga;
morning practice sessions;
group dialogue and mindful communication exercises to enhance awareness in everyday life;
individually tailored instruction;
a workbook with daily assignments and home practice materials.
YOGA: will be suitable for all and is Mindful Yoga and Yin Yoga, aiming to empower individuals towards health and well-being. It will be focusing on optimizing health and well-being at every level of the body and mind. It blends the ancient wisdom of Hatha Yoga with mindfulness and modern mind-body techniques.
WALKS: We will be offering several walks into the spectacular mountains with views of the Costa Blanca coastline. All optional and lead by an experienced trainer. We have on our doorstep two spectacular walks: one down in to "Hells Gorge" and the other up onto the "Green Horse Mountain" suitable for all.
Take this opportunity to spend some uninterrupted time feeding your creative spirit with like-minded people in lovely surroundings. This will be a small, supportive group, with an experienced group facilitator and mindfulness teacher. Come and join us, you deserve it!
