Description:
We all want to have a calm and peaceful mind. Much of our restlessness and agitation stems from an untrained mind and lack of clear awareness of what’s happening in our mind and body, moment by moment. Innocently trying to alleviate our stress by dwelling in the past and planning the future, we fail to notice what is happening in the present and compound our stress. During this insight meditation day retreat, we will explore ways to train our hearts and minds to find a calm abiding in the present moment.

All levels of experience welcome!


Continuing Education (CE) credit available. Teachings are appropriate for health care professionals as well as the general public. Health care professionals will be able to incorporate the tools and practices offered in this program in ways beneficial to clients or patients. Learning through direct experience can dramatically increase the prospects of being more successful with others.
