Mindfulness in Nature Weekend

September 13, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - September 15, 2019 @ 11:00 am


This weekend mindfulness meditation in nature retreat is designed to give you an opportunity to grow and deepen your experience of mindfulness meditation practice. Over the course of 3 days our teachers will guide you n a variety of meditations in nature and teachings on how to slow down, preserve energy, take joy in simplicity, unplug and recharge. There will be periods of silence and time for self-care. The teachers support by providing structure, teachings on meditation, meditation guidance, and personal support to help each participant move deeper into their own meditation practice. This retreat is held mostly in nature to support deepening the experience of mindfulness with the support of the natural environment. You have the opportunity to camp on the land- to experience more connection with nature, as well, indoor lodging options are available to support your needs.
