Mindful Self Care for Stress - 1 Day Meditation Retreat
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 day of mindfulness and meditation is all about. The purpose of this retreat is to develop a greater degree of awareness and a new relationship of equanimity with the present moment. It will allow for investigation into how our minds work and the true nature of reality. It will consist of alternate sitting and walking meditation along with body scan and eating meditation. There will be guided instructions to help you throughout the day. A talk on MINDFULNESS and COMPASSION will also be part of the program.
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 find a dedicated time for a more intense practice.
