Relaxation Day Retreat

Take a break and join us for a refreshing and relaxing day retreat in West Wales.

Upon arrival at the retreat centre nestled in the Cambrian Mountains, you will enter into the first session of the day, which consists of an uplifting dharma talk and a guided meditation designed to calm the mind and help you de-stress. Following refreshments and a short interval will be another session, to be followed by our longer afternoon break where we will enjoy a delicious light lunch (vegan) and have an opportunity to take a walk down to the river, enjoy some contemplation, and get acquainted with new friends. Then, we will go into our third and final session of the day before concluding with discussion and a Q&A.

You will be guided in an array of deeply relaxing meditations which allow you to completely unwind and settle your body and mind in a state of relaxation, tranquillity, and clarity. The dharma talks will explore the inner causes of stress, anxiety, and provide you with tips and innovative ways of thinking to calm and de-stress at home.

Whether you are working too hard, dealing with stress, or simply need some time to pause from the pressures of everyday life, this soothing day retreat will help you on your way to developing exceptional mental health and wellbeing and experience the genuine wellbeing that comes from having a wonderfully balanced and healthy mind.

You’ll leave feeling refreshed, nourished, stress-free and ready for the weeks ahead – with new tools to reduce your daily stress and anxiety and to make you a more positive and peaceful person.

There is no need to wear anything special (just be comfortable!) or bring anything in particular, though you are welcome to bring your own cushion/mat if you wish.
