Luxury Mindfulness Weekend

Unwind and connect with your deeper self as you learn to practice mindfulness in the beautiful and peaceful surroundings of Temple Lodge Spa. With all the ingredients for a fantastic getaway to awaken the heart, relax the mind, restore and rejuvenate the body.

Mindfulness has been known to increase a sense of slowing down, becoming present and peacefulness. Research shows that over time and with practice this becomes prevalent.  This helps balance the stresses and anxieties that we feel in a stressful life.  This creates a space that allows emotions to become manageable rather than overwhelming.

On this course you will learn how to be mindful in everyday life as well as how to maintain the benefits you get from this course. There will be opportunities to learn mindful movement, mindful breathing, mindful eating and also some yoga for anyone interested.  There will be group discussion on how to use mindfulness, how to sit and how to focus the breath.

Mindfulness is a state of active, open attention on the present. When you’re mindful, you observe your thoughts and feelings from a distance, without judging. We focus on a practice of compassion based mindfulness.

The Temple Lodge Spa has beautiful bedrooms, a relaxing vitality suite, gym, ten treatment rooms and a state of the art yoga & meditation studio.  All the rooms look over the vast countryside, giving you a sense of being away from it all, immersed in nature.  It has all the ingredients for a fantastic getaway to awaken the heart, relax the mind, restore and rejuvenate the body.

So forget the outside stresses and strains and immerse yourself in a retreat to reconnect the body and mind and rediscover yourself.

The retreat will run from 3rd to 5th March, 2017
