SERIES OF ONGOING ONE-DAY SILENT RETREATS organised by Newron Medical Services in collaboration with Janki Foundation


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.


The focus of the retreats is on silence The retreats are guided, with an inspirational talk by the lead speaker at the beginning of the day followed by silence (no talking) for 3.5 hours, 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.


‘Peace after Lockdown’ led by Rev Lizzie Hopthrow, Director of The Quiet View 


Who can come?  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.

There are only places for 12 to enable social distancing, and it will be outside under the shelter, with up to 5 max only at any time in the yurt for reflection.

Social Media Survey

Dear All,


Hope you have had an enjoyable summer. 


We are in the process of reviewing the Janki Foundation's social media content, which includes our website. 


Studies have indicated that different healthcare professionals have variable use of social media platforms, and they will make recommendations to patients or colleagues based on their confidence and reliability of information. In the current climate of healthcare crisis and information overload, we would benefit from an understanding on how spirituality-related information is accessed by healthcare professionals. This will enable us to focus our messages, events and outreach. 


We would greatly welcome your valuable thoughts through this survey. It is anonymous and will take less than 10 minutes to complete. 


Thank you.

Best wishes, 

JF Social Media Review Group
