Background training in facilitating retreats

Alison is currently training with the Bodhi College on their retreat teacher training programme. This extensive three-year programme has been extended into 2022 due to the coronavirus pandemic. The training has included study, teacher led talks, peer discussion, peer practice and feedback and regular mentoring with faculty.  As part of the training Alison has been assisting/co-teaching and leading several retreats, particularly for teachers in contemporary mindfulness communities.


Online retreat for mindfulness-based supervisors: Drinking deeply from the well of mindfulness together.

This online retreat is held over five days. It offers a unique opportunity to deepen your personal mindfulness practice alongside other experienced supervisors, as well as exploring mindfulness-based supervision within a retreat context. There will be some interpersonal mindfulness practice, encouraging us to bring mindful awareness to our experience of interacting with one other, as we contemplate themes around mindfulness-based supervision.


Online retreat: Introducing the Foundations of Mindfulness

This online retreat offers the opportunity to deepen our personal and experiential engagement with the core meditation practices taught in courses such as mindfulness-based stress reduction and mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, alongside offering an introduction to theoretical understandings that underpin them.
