Meditation Retreats 

Suryacitta has been leading meditation retreats for over 25 years and Gaynor for over 10 years. At Mindfulness CIC, we offer one day, weekend and week long silent mindfulness retreats throughout the UK, Italy and Spain, including the beautiful town of Newtown Linford, Leicestershire. These silent retreats allow you time to focus and deepen your mindfulness and compassion practice. 
Weekend Meditation Retreats UK 
On our weekend meditation retreats we cater for both the general public and corporate teams. These retreats normally run from 10.00am till 4:00pm on Saturday and Sunday. If you are travelling from afar, there are local hotels and B & Bs two nights. We will provide accommodation details on receipt of booking. Beautiful Bradgate Deer Park is just three minutes walk away so come and enjoy a relaxing weekend.  
These meditation retreats are suitable for all, from those new to mindfulness meditation and those who want to expand and refresh their practice. We offer something to suit everyone. 
Longer Silent Meditation Retreats 
Our longer residential Mindfulness retreats are located either in sunny Spain and Italy or the UK. These retreats are suitable for you if you want to experience deeper meditation away from your normal every day life. 
These silent meditation retreats Suryacitta leads are also suitable for teachers of mindfulness to both deepen their practice and their teaching skills.

Meditation Retreats - What people say from weekend retreats 

"This weekend surprised me – I was expecting a usual two days to Silence and instead I got an intensive retreat. Marvellous!!! Sorry I, I never tire of listening to you – you’re a great teacher. Even when I’ve heard it before it’s always fresh and often funny which I love. Thank you again and to Gaynor for making everything in the background always run smoothly." Sue 
“It exceeded my expectations, Suryacitta always keeps the content simple and understandable” Colin 
"Thank you! I have enjoyed the retreat. It’s a little like stepping out of reality for two days (which feels like a week!). I’ve never experienced anything to compare it with but I’m really happy and chilled with some refreshed strategies for life." Kerry 
"Simple, transformative and profound. What a pleasure to sit quietly for two days with other people and meditate. Wonderful!" Louise 
"Thank you. I have enjoyed every minute, very beneficial and this helped me understand the challenges in my own practice." Freddie 
"Have enjoyed popping my balloons! The teachings have brought me down to earth again, which is what I needed. Lovely weekend." Penny 
"I really like the pace of the retreats the meditations are a good length and having regular breaks this useful thanks so very much. Thanks both, kind, passionate, humanity your best qualities." Rosella (Verona Italy) 
“Hello Suryacitta, This email brings HUGE THANKS for your presence and teachings last weekend. I could include a long shopping list of the items which worked for me really well, , , , , , ,!! Sam 
"I found your teaching straight forward, down to earth, enjoyed all the metaphors. SOOOO elegant, simple and profound at the same time. Of course much of the dharma is, however you are able to touch the heart of it without an hour long discourse. Cherly  
"I had not heard of you before. A friend posted about the retreat & 
I was in need of some silent time with the collective energy of awareness. 
So I signed up, , , , very happy I did, a powerful retreat for me. Scientists tell us that the sense of smell can trigger very early memories. I am wondering now what the influence of a home town accent is? from one Smoggy to another" K bob 

Meditation Retreats - What people say from longer retreats 

"I said at the beginning of the Retreat last week, that the Nanpantan Retreat in 2017 had been the highlight of my life. Is it possible , do you think, to have 2 highlights in your life 🤣? I hope so because last week was my second👍 It would be so lovely to acquire a third highlight of my life. I be there next year!" Judy 
"As always Surya teaching is a perfectly placed filled with wisdom, clarity and humour. The retreat was brilliant, the team allowing the space for people to meet themselves with love, honesty and openness. I was able to spend time deepening my practice in a supportive environment with kindred souls." Sarah 
"I started the retreat looking into pool A soaking up the rich natural surroundings, and found the space to work at a much deeper level withtpool B." Anne 
"I’ve come to the retreat in a bit of a confused state amidst a lot of upheaval happening in my life. I’m still in the same state but I feel a lot of softness, openness and acceptance of how things are. This is what I want to work on. I thought the group was wonderful, the teaching insightful and spot-on to where I needed to go. The retreat was beautifully put together. The rooms, the food, all very thoughtful and caring." Thank you 
"Last year I commented that I’d found more questions and answers and I worked on some of the more important ones over the year. This year I simply found the stillness and the sitting very beneficial and powerful. As a result I now view the questions as simply heightened curiosity and issues make more sence from this perspective and from a puzzled “must work this out“ perspective. I’ve rediscovered that keeping my meditation more simple is more effective than if I overcomplicate it. So thanks a million for another stimulating and transformative week." Peter 
"I feel the benefits of the retreat every day. The concentrated practice boosts my awareness, I would like one a month, ha ha! I can see why people attend longer retreats, the difference with practice and general living is quite pronounced." Penny 
"I found the simplicity of practice we experienced helped me to stay balanced through the following weeks." Kirsty
