MINDFULNESS Retreat New Forest National Park, England

New Forest Mindfulness Retreat & Anxiety Treatment Rooms and Offers

Can we avoid being influenced by external conditions?

CBT and Buddhism Philosophy both provide us with the same answer.


We should use attentiveness to watch our thoughts and use mindfulness to act constructively. With these two we have the means to annihilate adverse conditions.

Human beings have experienced many emergencies and catastrophes in the past. Yet, we have survived and prospered despite of all catastrophic events.

We should not let our guards down, but we do not need to get panic. Instead, we need to continue moving forward by acting in a calm and correct manner.


Each year in Winter, The Rufus House offers special Mindfulness Retreat & Short Breaks,  as our Direct Booking Special Offers.   Offer valid End of February 2024.

Treat yourself with time of relaxation



Away from the hectic schedule of everyday life, with this short break in the country, you will experience true relaxation with nature in this beautiful part of England.

With our Mindfulness Short Break, you will experience communication with your body sensations.  Your day starts with Shower meditation, morning Mindful yoga practice, Walking meditation in the forest, and Mindful eating.  Guided meditation practice, breathing exercises and Mindful Yoga practices, alongside silence practice and Dialogue in the group.

If you have lived your life a short distance from your body, then it is high time you started living with your body.  If you are recovering from illness or injury, this short break could especially be beneficial.

Be aware of your body sensations, and knowing your limits at this given moment is the key to improving your well-being. By recognising and then not exceeding your limits, you will prevent injury and illness caused by stress and over work.

Winter in the New Forest

Winter Special Offers New Forest

The winter months are a great time of year to attend Retreat programme. Tranquility and clear energy in the forest would be beneficial in practicing Mindfulness.

Being with nature looking up the sky, you might notice merlin, peregrine falcon and short eared owl making regular appearances on the heathland just in front of The Rufus House.

Winter Solstice this year is Wednesday 21st of December,  walk up Bolton’s Bench or top of the hill just in front of The Rufus House to take in the magnificent site of the sun rising on the shortest day of the year in The New Forest area, which is also the first official day of winter.

If the sky is dark and clear, one evening, we recommend a short walk in front of the Rufus House to the top of the hill where you can enjoy 360 degree views. As New Forest has some of the UK’s darkest skies in the relatively light-polluted south-east.
