Unguided Silent Retreat Day


This Unguided Silent Retreat Day is suitable for those who already practise mindfulness or meditation. The gong will be rung at intervals throughout the day. You can alternate your sitting practise with walking practise in the garden or inside. You will be encouraged in your breaks to try and be mindful with eating and drinking, and also to be mindful in silence. It is a precious opportunity to have this time for you and your mind, as normally we can get caught up in the busy humdrum of life.


If you would like to arrive early it will give you time to have refreshments in the tea room and have time to chat with others before the retreat starts.


“The retreat day was amazing! Having the opportunity to consolidate all I have learned in a compassionate, supportive environment has given me the confidence to maintain my practice.” (Retreat participant)


All retreat days are held at our dedicated mindfulness centre in Cardiff from 10 am until 4 pm. There is hot food available to purchase in the Mugs & Mo Mos tea room for as little as £3.50 for a hot potato curry. 


To reserve your place, and for further details and available dates please click ‘Details & Book’. We look forward to welcoming you to the centre.



We run regular mindfulness retreat days as part of our Mindful Friends scheme which offer you further opportunity to enhance and nourish your mindfulness practice.

Each retreat day is available individually, or to subscribers to the Mindful Friends scheme.

They are followed by a group chat in the evening which is exclusive to subscribers to Mindful Friends.
