Event Details

Sliding Scale: $75 – 200. Code SP5D18.

The ancient technique of mindfulness as taught by the Buddha wakes us up to the deep mystery of life. Mindfulness moves us out of the pain of repetitive regrets and anxieties. With mindfulness, we notice things we’ve long taken for granted such as the delights of Thanksgiving leftovers! Mindfulness leads to a sense of spaciousness, helping us deal with troubling situations and navigate through the complexities of life.

This special day retreat on the day after Thanksgiving will introduce mindfulness through yoga and mindfulness meditation. The yoga asana will be focused on mindfulness rather than athletic performance. Come prepared to explore the present moment!

Young Adults (18-26) and Seniors (65+ with limited income) are invited to attend this day for $45.
