I often get asked if we recommend any meditation groups and courses in the UK and so, on the back of those requests, I decided to put together a list of people who run 8 week Meditation and Mindfulness for Wellbeing or Insight courses and/or those who have regular sitting groups. Enjoy!
Feel free to get in touch with these people! I know all of them personally and wouldn't hesitate in recommending that you spend some time with them :)
We've had our first mention in the Sunday Telegraph Travel Section this April!
"For a beach holiday that is also a retreat, head for the island of Lefkada in Greece where Serenity Retreat offers just that: guided walks, qigong and meditation. It's geared towards solo travellers and you can do as little or as much as you want- and I'd say the place is tranquil rather than silent. Should you want to try complete silence, the company offer weekend silent retreats in Yorkshire as well".
"It’s great for solo travellers interested in spirituality and personal growth or just pure relaxation, and tends to attract people who have started to question their lives and who want to live more meaningfully".
Queen of Retreats reviewed us too! Check out our page.
Metro had this to say:
Set up by Zen meditation teacher Kim Bennett, Serenity Retreats are aimed at solo travellers looking for self development. The week long retreat has an easy-breezy approach and while there are mindfulness walks, guided meditations and excursions on offer, nothing is compulsory. "Our emphasis is on giving our guests space", Bennett says. "Our accommodation is on the beach and we encourage guests do nothing other than watch the sea and the mountain for a restorative effect".
