Event description

Description

The retreat is a blend of discussion, participation, academic reviews, movement, and meditation. Participants are organisational psychologists and others with an interest in using mindfulness in their own practice and in organisational contexts.

The theme this year is around re-invigorating our mindfulness practice.

On Friday night, we will introduce people to the principles of mindfulness and mediation and you will experience a mindfulness body scan.

Saturday begins with Tai Chi on the lawn. There will be a discussion on the impediments to meditation using a review of one piece of academic research and a discussion of hindrances. The day includes sitting mediations and 5 minute mindfulness practices. There is a yoga session after lunch and a World Café will give 15 minute overviews of some of the research on mindfulness. In the evening there will be a night time meditative walk for those who are interested.

Sunday has a similar rhythm, starting with Tai Chi on the lawn. There will be more meditations, discussions, free writing techniques, mindfulness of senses and movement, and 5 minute practices. We will end the retreat between 3 and 4 pm.

The retreat has an established practice of drawing on the experience of the group and so far we have eight different leaders for various sections.

By the end of the retreat you will have:

  • Renewed and refreshed your mindfulness and meditation practices
  • Understood why establishing a regular practice is hard and have some ideas for how you can embed the practices into your daily routine
  • Experienced a variety of sitting and walking meditations, guided and unguided meditations
  • A kete of 5 minute meditation practices to take home with you

The venue is the peaceful and comfortable St Francis Retreat Centre, 50 Hillsborough Rd. The food is excellent (and they can cater for vegetarians). If you want more details please contact Stewart (stewart@fxc.co.nz).
