February saw us host our first Mindfulness Weekend and it is no exaggeration to say we were bowled over by the experience. We hosted 10 participants who came over from Ireland from Thursday until Sunday. Their feedback on the whole experience left us speechless – which is no mean feat! There was a huge amount of preparation in advance but we also had amazing support from Martin – the teacher – Gerard – our chef and Gerry – who set us up online and supported our baby steps into the daunting and ‘oh so time-consuming’ world of social media. And over the few days, things also flowed well. We were keen to evaluate the weekend and gather feedback from the participants and when we read the forms, we realised that whatever it was that we created over those few days, it was something very special and an experience on which we could build.
