Intensive Mindfulness Retreat: Australia

Deepen your personal practice and understanding of mindfulness meditation and its clinical implementation within MiCBT.

This retreat is an ideal training event to maintain yearly MiCBT professional development and a great opportunity to deepen your meditation skills. It is a near-silent retreat with a predominantly meditative content. 

The main purpose of the 5-day intensive retreat is to deepen the practice of mindfulness meditation and acquire further personal benefits for therapists who have attended an MiCBT Foundation or Applied Course. The retreat provides a more advanced understanding of mindfulness meditation and its fundamental purpose in the wider Buddhist teaching of the Eightfold Noble Path and its relevance to MiCBT. 

The venue is a traditional meditation centre (ashram) where every attendee participates in 30-minutes of daily service. The service activities of the centre can include gardening, picking vegetables and helping to cook a vegetarian lunch or making bread or goodies, office work and maintenance, sustainable building projects, environmental developments, library and other interesting creative projects and aspects of the ashram. The fee is kept purposefully low to facilitate frequent attendance for MiCBT clinicians and teachers. 


Participants must have successfully completed the MiCBT Foundation Course.

Learning objectives

You will develop greater levels of awareness and equanimity. You will learn the structure, content and purpose of the Eightfold Noble Path, of which mindfulness is a part. You will also learn to implement mindfulness meditation during MiCBT with greater knowledge and confidence.

The retreat must have helped me dissolve a layer of my 'ego' or two - because I am now effortlessly loving and patient, both inside and out.
