What are their mindfulness weekends about?

It’s great to learn mindfulness from books or lectures, but in truth mindfulness is an experience, and books and lectures can only point you in the right direction.

Mindfulness can’t be grasped intellectually because mindfulness isn’t a theory, or a belief, or anything to do with mental gymnastics. Mindfulness is a state of being. It’s a heightened state of alert awareness that allows your mind to go quiet. Then you can rest from the constant mental chatter, your problems, worries, and head dramas and get on with the really important issue of enjoying your life.

The basic principles of mindfulness are really simple and there really isn’t much to understand. Mindfulness is all about practice and direct experience. And that is what their Summer of Love weekends are about.

They’ll teach you everything that you need to know to practice mindfulness, but more importantly you’ll get to experience mindfulness for real and live it for an extended period.

From the outset, they’ll help you to achieve a deep state of mindfulness and the retreat is designed to help you maintain your mindfulness for much of the weekend. And that will teach you more about mindfulness than any book, lecture, or smart phone app ever can.

They have a team of really experienced mindfulness practitioners who can hold a high degree of mindfulness and they will help to keep you mindful in between the classes, teaching you mindfulness, and advancing your practice to a new level.

They won’t make you dress in robes or sit facing a wall for hours, there’s nothing wrong with that, but it’s just not their style. They prefer to teach mindfulness their own way. They have a modern, plain-talking approach to mindfulness, the teaching is no less profound but they want to make it accessible relaxed and fun. It is a holiday after all.

Go on, treat yourself, book yourself on their mindfulness retreat weekend everyone deserves a holiday from their head – even you!
