One of of the most difficult things we can do in life is to be fully awake and fully present for ourselves and for the people we love and care about. Mindfulness is the energy of being aware and awake to the present moment. It is the continuous practice of touching life deeply in every moment of daily life. To be mindful is to be truly alive, fully present, and at one with those around you and with what you are doing.
Join us for a weekend of yoga, meditation, and mindfulness practices that will help bring your body, mind, and heart into harmony. This weekend will offer you an introduction to inner peace and stillness, or it can provide insight and enrichment of your already ongoing meditation practice. You will learn and practice specific techniques that will help you slow down, embrace mindfulness, and enter the peace of the present moment. You don’t have to be a teacher, or even desire to become a teacher to attend this course.
Come prepared to learn:
• How to sit comfortably for meditation
• How to achieve a state of deep stillness/calm through mindful breathing
• How to work with thoughts as they arise while meditating
• How to access greater peace and joy throughout your day
• How to be more compassionate with yourself and others
• How to integrate specific meditation techniques into your daily life that help you live from a place of intention
