What impact do the undertones of racism, oppression and being classed as ‘other’ have on the BAME community? How does it affect our mind, body, and our confidence? Are we even fully aware of it?  Our families as well as ourselves may suffer but rarely discuss it. Why is this, and what would it look like if we could tackle these issues by bringing them to light through mindfulness? 

This is an opportunity to spend the day in a safe meditative space, addressing these situations relevant to our communities, and receiving support that is unique to MBBT.

We are a group of black and ethnic minority teachers addressing the lack of mindfulness-based services in our communities; and equipping those communities with tools to handle and alleviate the stresses unique to their background.

These retreat days will provide a meditative and unified space to speak our truths to enable us to release, heal and grow.  We invite you to come and share your stories, or just listen to those of others.

The day will include walking and sitting meditation, discussion, mindful movement and practicing noble silence.  Also mindful sitting, dharma reading and mindful movement. And will end with a peaceful and inspiring dedication ceremony for all participants to take part in.   

 

We are not affiliated with an institution, religion and have no funding .

Please bring food to share, personal cushions/mats etc

The New Forest is home to some of the UK’s most beautiful countryside. We are delighted to host the first annual people of colour retreat in the New Forest as part of the mindfulness network for people of colour.

We would like to provide this space to re-boot, rekindle our meditation practice and recharge. We are placing the emphasis on having a full 48 hours of being well-fed, getting good sleep, Live music,  good company, and enjoying meditation and walks.

Our aims and themes for this weekend will entail walking and practicing mindfulness amongst the tall trees and walks along the coastline. The New Forest is home to some of the UK’s most beautiful countryside; just 2 hours from Waterloo and 30 minutes from Southampton and Bournemouth.

We welcome members of the BAME communities to this not-for-profit event. All our teachers are volunteers and we do this because we love bringing meditation practice to our communities. Please pass on the word – only 19 spaces on the retreat!
