A daylong retreat to explore mindful living and find ways of staying resourced in our busy or stressful lives.
Join us for an exploration of the core foundations of Mindfulness that inform how we relate to our body, feelings, thoughts, and engagements in the world with greater awareness and self-care.
Mindfulness is far more than a quick fix tool to reduce stress, but a living practice and art that can support the growth of greater resilience, emotional balance, and wellbeing in several areas of our lives. Most importantly, it is a practice that allows us the potential to live our lives more fully and deeply
Through accessible practices, creative exercises and reflections, we will explore how we can bring mindfulness to our own unique life situations, to create more balance, kindness and sustainable wellbeing in our lives and our relationship with the world.
ACTIVITIES WILL INCLUDE...
Mindfulness meditation practices
Simple body-based movement practices
Compassion and kindness practices
Time in nature
