Breathing Space runs a two-day retreat in the countryside teaching Mindfulness Based Approaches (MBAs) for preventing relapse into depression or addiction. These retreats are suitable both for newcomers to MBAs and for people who have completed a Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) course or Mindfulness Based Addiction recovery (MBAR) course. They can help you learn in a more intensive way the practices and techniques taught on the courses - and function as a good refresher if you have done a course - helping you to stay well.

What happens at Breathing Space retreats
Breathing Space retreats are held at our beautiful retreat centre in the Suffolk countryside. They are for two days and two nights. There will be a balanced programme of activities including led meditation, teachings on mindfulness, group discussions, as well as time to relax, go for walks in the countryside, and get to know people.
Travel, accommodation and food
We will provide transport to and from our retreat centre. The retreat centre is in a very quiet part of rural Suffolk, surrounded by gently rolling countryside. Accommodation is in shared rooms. The retreat centre has pleasant gardens, a pond and a purpose built meditation hall. All the rooms are centrally heated. All the food on the retreat is tasty vegetarian food prepared by the retreat team cook.
