This kind of ‘home retreat’ is a new innovation and is designed to meet the needs of these challenging times. We are trying out a new form and hope that it will provide a powerful way to integrate retreat and daily life.

We propose to complete the Retreat in 3 live sessions per day online, live and interactive, via the Zoom platform. You will need a stable internet connection and flexibility to create the space you need to engage fully with the programme.

Online Participation 

Online participation shares much of the same conventions as ‘in-person’ participation: You are joining an immersive retreat and you will be as visible in the virtual classroom as you would be in-person. Our virtual classroom will use Zoom, a free video-conferencing tool that is the platform of choice for courses like this one. Zoom is very user friendly whatever your level of experience or comfort. Be assured – if you can click on a link then you can use this tool. Just as we have preparations to make to attend in-person retreats, there are preparations that we need to make in order to ensure we can maximise the immersive experience of this Retreat.

SILENCE:

Silence is a main supportive feature of the retreat and we will be practising a warm friendly silence and, at all times, there will be the possibility to speak to the retreat leader or organisers should this be needed. There will also be an option to talk briefly with the retreat leader about your practice. The first evening we will be talking and getting to know each other, outlining the program etc. The last evening we will be breaking the silence and sharing aspects of the experience if we wish to.

A TYPICAL DAY’S PROGRAMME MIGHT BE AS FOLLOWS:

8.00 Guided Mindfulness practice

9.00 Personal time for preparing and eating breakfast

10.30 Morning of guided Mindfulness practices, sitting meditations, mindful movement, body scan, mindful walking.

13.00 Time to prepare and have lunch followed by free time to rest

16.30 Gentle Mindful Yoga

18.00 Further Teacher Guided Mindfulness practice

20.00 Finish

THESE RETREATS WILL OFTEN INCLUDE:

  • Periods of both guided and self-directed practice
  • Sustained periods of silence to enable participants to connect more fully with their inner experience
  • Time to practice mindfulness informally between the scheduled sessions
  • The teachers will be available to talk to people individually.
  • A core teaching intention for this retreat is to offer a structure and atmosphere within which we can deeply look into the experience with the freshness of beginner’s mind, enabling new insights and perspectives to emerge.

TESTIMONIAL

ONLINE SILENT RETREAT MAY 2020

Overall really positive experience, especially considering the initial hesitation about doing it online. While I have loved coming to Solterreno with all that it offers (the nature, the food, and of course the incredible teaching), I truly enjoyed doing the online version of the silent retreat. It was an excellent opportunity to slow down and turn inward in the comfort of my own home, under the guidance of excellent and lovely teachers. It was very helpful in continuing to deepen my practice and to support my overall well-being. Highly recommended!

Valeria, ONLINE Silent retreat

The Retreat was a really unique combination of being within and without. I feel it like a wonderful co-journey and also like the opportunity to stop, turn inward, tune in, work with interest and enjoy a lot. The guidance of professional teachers provides safety and wise foundation for practice, supports curiousity and inspiration to explore, invites to go deeper within. I am very grateful for the individual support available as well. The topic of Compassion is so much relevant and significant now, having deep interconnection with mindfulness. It was an important step to deepen my practice during this challenging time of pandemic. Really appreciate and enjoy this time in Solterreno virtual space.

Aparna Shukla, Testimonial

MBSR TT1 has been the most experiential and active learning course for me. I feel this programme includes ancient wisdom in scientific format and highly recommend to anyone looking to teach MBSR. Bodhin is a very dedicated teacher and his presence was felt throughout.

I have been teaching mindfulness-based practices for 20 years, and have been running teacher training courses in Italy. I found that Bodhin and the staff at Solterreno are highly prepared and competent. I participated in TT1 and it was a really superb experience and I highly recommend it to anyone looking to deepen into their mindfulness practice and learning the MBSR program. I will continue training here.
