RETREAT INTO PEACE – a Day for Reflection



  • Event Date

    15, Oct 2011
    @ 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM

  • Event Location

    The Quiet View, 146 The Street, Kingston, Canterbury, Kent, CT4 6JQ

  • Event Organizer

    The Janki Foundation

The day aims to provide time out, and to create space for reflection. The sessions will be facilitated by experienced ‘Values in Healthcare’ facilitators and will introduce tools such as meditation and visualisation. The day will allow participants to develop personal wellbeing.

The Values in Healthcare programme uses simple yet powerful methods to rediscover inner peace. Practising peacefulness helps to build self-respect and contentment. Peacefulness is the antidote to ‘stress’.

All of the facilitators leading the sessions have experience in delivering Values in Healthcare sessions in many NHS, charitable and independent healthcare settings, helping staff become aware of, and reconnecting with their own resources.
