POSTPONED: Mini Mindfulness Retreat: Quieting, Creating, Discovering
Facilitated by FEW member, Leigh Kennedy
Our first mindfulness retreat in November was so...mindful!...that participants agreed it would be a good thing to schedule semi-regularly. Repeaters and first-time joiners all welcome for our mini-mindfulness retreat #2.
Feeling busy lately? Lots to do and not a lot of time to slow down? Or if you do slow down is it still hard to relax? If any of this sounds familiar, join us for an afternoon of mindfulness! The focus of our time together will be on quieting our body and mind, being present in the moment, and enjoying simply be-ing, with ourselves and others. Our three hours together will include mindful breathing, gentle yoga, journaling, creative expression, sharing, and mindful eating. You will come away feeling relaxed and refreshed and more connected with your inner self.
