ZOOM VIDEO CONFERENCE LIVE,

SERIES OF ONGOING ONE-DAY SILENT RETREATS organised by Newron Medical Services in collaboration with Janki Foundation
Due to the lockdown, we are not able to host this silent retreat at The Quiet View itself, but Dr Julia Ronder with co-host Renee van der Vloodt will be running this online via Zoom for the shorter time of 10.30 to 1.00pm on Friday 24th April.
The focus of this half-day retreat is on silence – The retreat will be guided, with an inspirational talk by the lead speaker at the beginning of the day followed by silence (no talking) for 1 hour, and ending the day with sharing of reflections and insights. Participants are able to walk, rest, meditate, pray, read, draw and paint, amongst other possibilities. Each person has a unique experience of the retreat according to their needs and priorities.
These retreats allow us to physically and mentally get away from our daily roles and routines, literally have a ‘re-treat’, a break”. They are an opportunity to have space and time to recharge our batteries, away from the busyness and our usual distractions, in a supportive and beautiful environment. We have time to reflect and focus on ourselves, our thoughts, and feelings which can then help us to regain perspective on our lives and give clarity to make day to day decisions. The experience can empower and inspire us to gain new ideas to practise or to think about in order to reconnect to our inner selves and our spiritual lives bringing more calm and fulfilment.
TITLE: HOLDING ON TO PEACE – led by Dr Julia Ronder, Consultant Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist, Certified Mindful Self-Compassion Teacher and Renee van der Vloodt, Psychotherapist, Trainer and Coach
Who can join? The retreats are designed for healthcare professionals, but as everyone cares for another, those from all professional and spiritual backgrounds are welcome. The days are ideally aimed at those already experienced and comfortable with silence.
The retreats are organised on a non-profit basis with the generosity of hearts. Newron Medical Services organise the retreats free of charge and the lead facilitators also kindly offer their time and expertise free of charge to run the retreats.
