This half day retreat is a chance to explore and integrate the practices of Mindful Self Compassion. We will come together for a morning of silent practice and experience gentle guidance in the core practices of Mindful Self Compassion.




  • Compassionate Relaxation/Body Scan

  • Simple body-based movement practices

  • Mindful activities away from the computer

  • Core MSC Meditations such as Affectionate Breathing, Loving Kindness and Giving and Receiving Compassion




This retreat is a perfect refresher for those who've already attended a Mindful Self-Compassion Course or Retreat. We will assume you are familiar with the practices and concepts of MSC but everyone is welcome to join.

















£10 for ages 18 - 24.


Please get in touch if you have any questions!
