We are offering this unique opportunity to engage in a silent retreat, from the comfort of your own home. Beth Mulligan and David Spound, both Certified MSC Teachers & Teacher Trainers, will be holding the retreat virtually. They will guide you through the retreat just as they would in person, while you can stay healthy, safe and sleep in your own bed. There will be full days of mindfulness and compassion meditation practice, walking meditation, Mindful Movement, talks, teachings, and opportunities to meet in small groups once during the retreat

This silent retreat is for those already teaching or interested in teaching Mindful Self-Compassion, and other mindfulness-based programs (MBP) such as Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction.  In addition, it is open to any individuals who would like to further develop their mindfulness meditation practice.

Silent retreats allow participants to:

  • Feel more grounded and centered

  • Increase personal presence
  • Savor their authentic self

The Online Silent Retreat meets the pre-requisite requirements for MSC Teacher Training, as well as the requirements for teacher training  at the Mindfulness-Based Professional Training Institute, University of California at San Diego, and Brown University Center for Mindfulness.
