MBSR Retreat on Crete (Greece)

8 days: 30 June - 7 July or 1 - 8 September 2019

6 days: 30 June - 5 July or 1 - 6 September 2019

MBSR (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction) is a simple yet highly effective way to deal more effectively with stress, illness, and the demands of daily life, and to improve physical and emotional well-being. The program consists of practical exercises: body awareness (BodyScan), mindful yoga, sitting and walking meditation, and mindfulness in everyday life. The course focuses on personal practice and experience. No prior experience is necessary.

This 8-day or 6-day MBSR teacher-led retreat gives participants a special opportunity to devote real time to themselves, a different kind of vacation for relaxation and regeneration. It is particularly conceived for those who would like a relaxed yet concentrated introduction to MBSR, as well as for those who already have MBSR experience and would like to refresh and deepen their personal MBSR practice.

We begin each day with standing yoga practice on the beach. After breakfast, we continue in our seminar room practicing the bodyscan, yoga, sitting and walking meditation - all in silence, with instruction. In the afternoon there's plenty of time and space for individual (mindfulness in daily life) practice while eating, shopping, conversing, actively non-doing under a beach umbrella, swimming, walking on the beach, enjoying freshly squeezed orange juice or a Greek coffee at one of the tavernas, etc. In the early evening additional practice and discussion sessions are offered, with practical information about mindfulness and stress reduction.

We begin in the late afternoon on the first day, and end in the morning on the last day.

At the end of this retreat, you can extend your stay and continue practicing what you've learned under guidance.
