Deep Listening

This is an invitation to deeply listen to what it is that we need and want for ourselves. A time to take stock, re-calibrate and uncover what stillness has to show us. Learning to be guided by our own inner wisdom.

We'll create an environment of grounding to facilitate that, as well as making time for some self compassion and honing our skills of deep listening, both to ourselves and others through exercises and meditation. Let's discover what it means to truly listen to ourselves without demands, or threats, or the push me/pull me habitual ways of thinking that guide so many of our decisions.

Let's feel into the privilege of truly listening to another (whether or not they're speaking!) without needing to fix them or make them happy or give them solutions and in that way we also expand the ability to do the same for ourselves.

We'll also incorporate some self compassion into this week.

We can make contact with the part of ourselves that has answers, has wisdom and simply knows, as well as improving our ability to listen to others whether or not they're speaking.

How much does it cost and how long is it?

This course takes place over four mornings (normally Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday) and for about an hour and a half per session.
The cost is £120 and there are ten spaces.


Kim founded Serenity Retreat back in 2010. She is a trained Zenways Meditation and Mindfulness Teacher with over twelve years experience and has also trained in Self Compassion with Kristen Neff and Chris Germer. Most recently, Kim became a Kiloby Inquiries Facilitator in January 2022.

Her passion is to discover what really lies beneath, both for herself and others, and to encourage open-heartedness and fearlessness to the adventure of life. She's straightforward, no nonsense, and has an earthy sense of humour.

'Kim is an exceptional teacher; courageous , authentic, wise and compassionate She brings real humility and appropriate humour to her sessions and has an impressive ability to relate to everyone within diverse groups; there’s no sense of needing to be “one of us”. I have experienced Kim’s meditations, group discussion and exploration sessions and also one-to-one work and I am stuck by her ability to express and share the depth of her knowledge and insight in such an enjoyable, informative and impactful way. Oh and she’s a really lovely soul as well!' - Sarah

'My perception of you as a mentor/teacher/deliverer of content is that you are extremely intuitive and I notice you often see beyond just the words that someone may be saying, and are really good at peeling back the layers (gently and comfortably). In addition it is the raw honesty that ultimately enables a trusting relationship.' - Pankti
