Retreats: Harmony Hill and Spain in 2017
4:00 Friday, September 22 - 1:30 Sunday September 24, 2017
"Well-being is a learned skill" - Richard Davidson
There is a growing body of scientific evidence that mindfulness is a powerful pathway for developing that skill. Through ancient practices like mindful walking; sitting meditation; lovingkindness and equanimity meditation; and slow mindful yoga we systematically build our capacity to be more present in each moment in an open, receptive way.
Part of this retreat will be held in the tradition of noble silence as a way to conserve energy and encourage introspection. There will also be opportunities to meet in small groups with teachers to receive individualized instruction.
Harmony Hill offers the unique advantage of natural beauty, labyrinths and walking trails; cozy, inviting accommodations and scrumptious food. You feel nurtured and cared for by the staff and the surroundings as you experience your own deep self care. Filling your own well in this way allows you to go back into your regular life able to be more of a benefit (and less of a bother) to those you serve at work and at home.
