About The Event
Silent Mindfulness Online Day Retreat
Oxford Brookes Business School invites you to register for this online day retreat, to be offered Sunday 28th February 2021 (from £20-£25 per person).
Relax and listen to teachings on mindfulness and silence – and practise mindfulness techniques that nurture tranquillity, serenity, equanimity, and insight in these challenging times.
This online day retreat is based on published research on mindfulness and silence conducted by Jeff Waistell of Oxford Brookes Business School. Jeff was presented with the ‘Innovative Paper Award’ for his article on the salience of silence at the prestigious Academy of Management in Boston, and he has published journal articles and presented papers on mindfulness at several United Nations conferences. For nearly half-a-century, Jeff has committed himself to his daily practice of meditation.
This silent online day retreat is particularly suitable for those who want to nurture tranquillity, serenity, equanimity, and insight in these challenging times. You don’t need to have previous experience of mindfulness, but you do need to be committed to embracing what the full day has to offer. Resolutions to improve diet and exercise require positive intention and patient perseverance, with the result that life improves slowly but surely: the same applies to mindfulness.
The retreat will take place via a webinar, with teachings interspersed with periods of guided meditation. You will need to commit yourself to blocking out the whole day (9am to 5pm) in your chosen quiet place, where you will be entirely undisturbed.* This is a retreat (a treat) for yourself, so you need time out from your normal tasks and busy life, without any interruptions whatsoever.
