Day-Retreat - Mindfully Preparing for the Holidays

What is mindfulness and how can it improve my life? There is no better time to find out than during the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. Mindfulness is sweeping western culture for one reason: it works!

Take a break from the hurry and worry and join us as we introduce you to a practice of mindfulness that will help you remain peaceful and responsive, rather than reactive, no matter what the holidays throw at you. Cultivate this practice during the winter months and prepare to experience an incredible spring.
