Mindful Friends Retreat Days

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. 

These retreat days are not suitable for beginners as they are held in silence. If you have completed an 8 Week Mindfulness course you can attend the retreat days attached to those, which are a more suitable entry point for people who have not been on retreat before. 


“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.” (Course participant)


All retreat days are held at our dedicated mindfulness centre in Cardiff from 10 am until 4 pm. We encourage you to bring along a vegetarian lunch suitable for sharing. If you have special dietary requirements please bring along a suitable lunch.


Please note that silent retreat days are not suitable for a first experience of mindfulness. If you have not tried mindfulness before you are welcome to try one of our ‘Introduction to Mindfulness’ workshops or an 8 Week Mindfulness course.
