Life only happens in this moment. Are you available for the full experience every moment has to offer? Even the seemingly small everyday moments? Mindfulness is a basic human capacity for non-judgmental awareness of experiencing the present moment. In this mostly silent, intensive mindfulness meditation retreat, we will investigate the natural ease and impact moment-by-moment awareness can have- to promote insight, to nurture resilience and joy, and to transform the experience and activity of daily life.
We will offer instructions and guidance for practicing a variety of mindfulness meditation methods, as well as providing some opportunities for discussion and questions. The majority of the retreat will consist of silent meditation periods involving sitting, walking, or gentle movement.
No previous mindfulness experience is required and the retreat is open to those new to meditation as well as to experienced practitioners.
