8-10 Sept: Mindfulness Weekend Retreat

personal-growth-2268884_1920Spend the weekend in silent practice to look inward and practice mindfulness on the cushion, walking, eating, and in everything you do. There are many benefits to developing mindfulness, including more focus, pleasant physical states, and a calmer basis for emotions. Applied correctly, mindfulness is practiced as a basis for developing positive states of mind like loving kindness and compassion. Some previous experience with meditation is recommended even though this is a beginning level retreat. Led by Sarah Brooks.sarah-nz-headshot
