One-day Silent Retreat – Micro-dosing on Joy & Nurturing Inner Happiness

One-day Silent Retreat – Micro-dosing on Joy & Nurturing Inner Happiness

ONE DAY SILENT RETREATS for those working in Health & Social Care – organised by the Kent Group of the Janki Foundation for Spirituality in Healthcare.


They provide an opportunity to spend time with yourself, to care for yourself, and to spiritually recharge. There is an hour’s talk with suggested guided practices/exercises followed by 3 and 1/2 hours of silence. You can walk in the beautiful Quiet View Gardens, spend time in the yurt, on the labyrinth, under the shelter, or reflecting in any of the meditation spaces. The time is yours. We will then come out of silence for the last half hour of the retreat day.

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
