Silent Meditation Retreat, Sunday 12 June 2022
at Mindfulness Centrum Haarlem
[located in Haarlem city center, 8 min walk from train station]
Start a morning with slow yoga medidation and plenty of time with rest and peace for yourself. A morning of 'me time'.
Our silent meditation retreat lasts around 3.5 to 4 hours.
During these 3.5 hours we practice various meditation exercises in silence. All exercises are guided by the trainer (who is talking for the instructions).
The idea of a mindful silent retreat is unplugging, slowing down and creating awareness from moment to moment, such as your movements, your wandering mind, your response.
Think about walking up or down the stairs, fully aware of all sensation while drinking a cup of tea or simply relax.
By embracing stillness, you will have the opportunity noticing better your state of mind, your bodily experiences or feelings.
HOW DOES A DAY LOOK LIKE?
We will start at 9.00 (walk-in time 8.45) am and end at 12.30/ 13.00h.
During the welcome, talking is still allowed.
First the trainer will outline the details of the program. As soon there are no more questions, the signal for silence follows.
8.45 am: Walk in
9.00 am: Welcome & Explanation
9.15 am: Start: various exercises, e.g.
- Slow easy Yoga
- Breathing meditation
- Meditation on seeing/ viewing, walking, listening,.... other techniques
12.30 pm: end of practices
12.30 pm: Optional Q&A
Every meditation exercise is followed up by a break. So you have time for simply doing nothing, enjoy the stillness, use it for reflection, walking around, enjoying our garden/courtyard, eating, drinking or writing down some notes.
Towards the end of the retreat around 12.30h there will be the option exchanging your experiences if you wish to do so.
But you also have the choice to leave in stillness at 12.30 and skip a Q&A session.
- Wear some comfortable clothing that doesn't pinch (layers).
- A pair of warm socks are always recommended.
- A notepad (in case you want to write something down).
- Bring your own lunch or snacks in case you get hungry.
We serve tea, water, coffee, cookies and fruit.
Yoga-mats, pillows, and blankets are available at our location.
