Time: All Day
Cost: Free

Retreat Overview:

The goal of mindfulness meditation is to learn to be present in every moment of your life, not just when you are sitting in meditation. There are many thing that can distract us from the here and now. This is why we need to practice mindfulness.

The retreat will begin and end with a group meditation on Zoom. Then, throughout the day you will receive private text message prompts (no group texts) to give you various techniques to be mindfully present during your day’s activities.

Apart from the morning and evening group mediations on Zoom, you do not need to change or modify your day.

The Art of Living

This retreat has been inspired by Thich Nhat Hanh’s book, “The Art of Living” but you do not need to have it to participate. Our goal is to simply practice being present in every moment of our normal everyday lives.
