A Serenity Pause in the Busyness of your Life:
Relax Deeply, Balance your Mind & Emotions, Replenish your Energy
This Daylong Retreat allows you to step out of the complexity and busyness of your life and to listen deeply to your body, heart and mind. The central practice on our retreat will be mindfulness, a time for reflection, a time to witness what is going on inside you, a time to experience the present moment with no judgment, accepting what is. In this silent and mindful environment, the body quiets, awareness sharpens, the mind clears, and space opens for insight and understanding to develop.
This retreat offers an opportunity for practicing mindfulness and meditation which will open our hearts and minds to see the ways in which we create unnecessary worries and challenges in our lives, and it will help us discover the freedom we can all experience when we let go of our habitual thinking patterns. There will be training on how to work with what we are experiencing. We will bring loving kindness and self-compassion to our experience through guided meditations, and we may discover a way to be in harmony with the realities of life.
