Mindfulness Retreat: Coming home to our Body And Embodying Presence

A Residential Retreat


Mary O’Callaghan


Dunderry Park

May 31st to June 2nd 2013


When we take notice of how we are living our life we begin to recognise that we rarely inhabit the present moment, and that our mind is racing between past and future. The result is that we tend to go through life as if we are being chased and, even when we have the time, we find it difficult to slow down.

Fortunately we have all the resources we need to come back to the present moment, namely our body and our breath.  Unlike the mind which can flitter from place to place, the body is always in the present moment.  As we connect more deeply with the body we will begin to experience not only our own aliveness but also the vivid nature of life that is immediately around us.

During this weekend we will explore through practice and theory the gentle art and trainings of mindfulness.  The weekend will be a combination of mindfulness practices, talks, silence and sharing.
