In this short retreat, we will use mindfulness practices to explore beginnings and endings. It has been a difficult 18 months, and we will explore how mindfulness practice can enhance our sense of connection at a time when life seems fragile.

The programme includes group discussions, mindfulness practices of various sorts and time for relaxation. The programme is suitable for those who are new to mindfulness practice or those with experience.

The feedback we get from our mindfulness retreats is always good and many people return regularly. However, it is a completely open group and new faces are always welcome. Both Emma and Gwen are doctors in psychiatric practice and mindfulness practitioners.

Gwen Adshead is a Forensic Psychiatrist and Psychotherapist. She trained in mindfulness based cognitive therapy in Oxford and has been interested in doctors’ wellbeing for several years. She writes on different topics in psychiatry, especially therapy with offenders and ethics in mental health.

Emma Went, is also a Forensic Psychiatrist and Psychotherapist. She is based in Norwich where she has a private psychiatry and psychotherapy practice and provides expert opinions to the courts.
