MINDFULNESS FOR AFFIRMING LIFE
Did you ever want to attend a retreat but were afraid to? So much sitting! How will I ever do that? I can’t sit still that long! This is a wonderful opportunity to experience what a partial day of mindfulness and meditation is all about. The purpose of this retreat is to start to develop a more concentrated mindfulness practice. It will consist of alternate sitting and walking meditation along with body scan, mindfulness, gratitude and eating meditation practices. There will be guided instructions to help you throughout the day.
If you are a less seasoned practitioner, the only requirement is a willingness to be present and be with what comes up. There is nothing you need to know ahead of time.
This is also a wonderful opportunity for experienced practitioners to help find a dedicated time for a more intense practice.
