A therapeutic retreat combining Sound Therapy, Meditation, Mindfulness, for individuals seeking to immerse themselves in a supportive retreat during a time of deep personal reflection and growth.
Every day is organised around four hours duration on our variety of activities which include:
Daily one-to-one therapeutic talking and processing sessions with your counselling psychotherapist.
Daily sound therapy meditations with a certified sound therapist. "Music expresses feeling and thought, without language; it was below and before speech, and it is above and beyond all words." Robert G. Ingersoll -
One workshop teaching you the techniques of how to use Tibetan Singing Bowls at home for your continued Mindfulness and Meditation self-care practice.
Daily activities including Mindful Awareness Nature Photography and nature walking.
You will be subtly immersed in the practice of mindfulness throughout your time with us.
Throughout the programme at your Serenity Wellness Retreat all conversations are therapeutic in nature, skilfully guided during your time with Theresa, a qualified counselling psychotherapist. She is always aware of the subtlety required between times for speaking, listening and being in silence, in the company of others and time spent alone.
We will also enjoy personal free time, a self-guided local itinerary to local historical monastic sights is available, affording you the opportunity to walk mindfully 'in the present,' amongst natures splendour, whilst retracing ancient pilgrim paths.
You will be able to enjoy spending time in nature during your mindfulness walks and guided mindful photography activities.
You will have ample time to wind down, which will enable you to process, reflect and rejuvenate your body, mind and spirit throughout your day because our programme is guided at a leisurely, relaxed yet progressive pace.
