Participating in an extended silent retreat is an invaluable way of deepening the personal practice of mindfulness meditation and is viewed as an indispensable step to becoming an instructor in mindfulness-based approaches including Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT).

It represents an opportunity for practitioners with an established meditation practice to deepen their personal experience of mindfulness meditation and to explore its roots in the Buddhist tradition as a foundation for teaching others.
