On the 15th June 2014 in Northfield Meeting House – a beautiful historical building we engaged in the first guided Mindfulness and Meditation Day Retreat in Birmingham.
People from across Birmingham, Solihull and Shropshire came to the event. One lady travelled down from Nottingham to gain insight into how she could improve her practice.
During the day we looked at techniques to help bring us into the present moment.
Mindful Listening, Body & Breathing.
There was opportunity for plenty of discussion and Q&A’s to clarify our practice, so everyone could go home with a renewed, refreshed experience and feel confident in engaging in a regular daily practice.
Here are the thoughts of some those of those who attended.
