Mini Retreat Series


January the 12th will be the second mini retreat in the biggertable retreat series.

On Wednesday January 12th 2011 we are offering the second in the biggertable mini retreat series to be held in London.

Continuing to build on the retreats aims to offer the opportunity of a single day to experience something away from the normal routine of the workplace and daily schedule, we are introducing the new class of Mindful Therapy alongside Creative Journal Writing. The mini retreat day is not only for those who have been before and who are building on their experience with us, but it is for newcomers who also wish to take the opportunity to introduce something that could make a difference to their daily lives.

The Mindful Therapy class is to be given by Pam Powers and in it she observes stress and the body’s response to it. Pam teaches practical technique’s for use in times of stress and strong emotion through a mindfulness approach within daily life which calls on such concepts as diaphragmatic breathing, staying focused in the present and defusing unhelpful thoughts.

Lunch will be in the Slow Food style where all the ingredients are seasonal and locally sourced.

The afternoon class of Creative Journal Writing given by Beverly Frydman will be continuing from the last mini retreat to explore and appreciate the value of writing out our thoughts and ideas. Journal writing is always an on going experience and those starting out can drop straight into the class and begin a journal at anytime.

The last biggertable mini retreat was such a positive day for all of us and with such enthusiastic responses that we are very much looking forward to the January 12th. The day costs £100 and includes the lunch. It runs from 9.30 to 3.30 and will be held in a private home in London W9. If you would like any further information, or would like to book a place, please contact Alistair or Tessa at

A Tuscan Retreat

Hey! STOP! Here’s an idea! Lets take a week away from the usual, a sabbatical, and try to get reacquainted with some of life’s pleasures and enjoy some investment in our selves. Let’s spend these days with some talented people who will re-kindle our interest in some basic skills and endeavours; to put back what everyday life should include. The interesting things that we have forgotten to do. Those pastimes that have passed us by.
