Mindful and therapeutic retreat for personal reflection and development
University of Cambridge
This “Spring Echoes” workshop is for anyone who craves or may benefit from time to recharge and reconnect with themselves, to deepen their self-awareness and plan their future.
You might be a busy professional or work with clients or customers. Perhaps you are a carer or someone who feels over-burdened at home or at work?
Maybe you’ve put others’ needs before your own? If so, then this workshop is for you!
Spring is the season of new possibilities and renewed energy. At this time, new desires and ideas can be revealed and these tender new shoots can help signpost us to areas where we most wish to place our attention. What new changes or ideas do you wish to nurture?
In this workshop, we focus on our senses, but with greatest attention on listening. We will take time to listen within to explore questions such as… 'how can we best tune in to ourselves?', 'what is our own inner voice saying to us?', 'when we are in nature, what do we hear?', 'what speaks to us?'.
Through nature, music, literature and words, this workshop will allow you to take a journey back to yourself and your own renewal. Our hearing can enable us to be truly present and deepen our connection with nature and our natural, true self.
Using Newnham College’s beautiful grounds and rooms, our venue provides the opportunity to work both in groups and as individuals, spending time outside, as well as indoors. Utilising coaching, counselling and mindfulness, this workshop aims to provide you with the space to refocus and consider what you would like to do to enrich your life during the year ahead.
