A Guided Mindfulness Retreat

A Weekend Event at The OPAL Centre, Donamon, Co. Roscommon, Ireland

18th - 19th September 2021 (Arrive for 10am start on Saturday & depart from 4pm on Sunday)

This Guided Mindful Retreat is a Weekend Event being run by  Ray James (OPAL’s founder).  No prior experience or knowledge of Mindfulness is required and all are welcome.

On this relaxing and re-energising retreat we will look at the benefits of using Mindfulness in our daily lives and how to live in harmony with life - whatever life brings. You will be introduced to, and have the opportunity to practice, both formal and informal Mindfulness processes including Mindfulness Meditation, Mindful Eating, Mindful Walking and 'Being' fully connected in the moment.


The retreat will combine guided sessions of teachings and practice along with periods of stillness for personal reflection. Whether you are new to Mindfulness, have never previously been on a retreat or someone who is more experienced, this weekend retreat is designed to accommodate your requirements.

Using a range of creative mindfulness processes plus guided meditation, instructional teaching sessions and periods of silent reflection, we will develop our ability to live in harmony with life – whatever life brings. No previous experience of Mindfulness or any other activities is required.

Although there will be periods of silence, this is not a totally silent retreat. Please contact OPAL for information on full Silent Retreats.
