What is mindfulness? In this retreat, we will steep in the wisdom teachings of being‑ness … being present in the moment of now while engaging in a gentle and friendly quality of attention. Participants will experience mindfulness from a variety of perspectives including sitting with breath practices, guided meditations, and gentle movement. The wisdom practices of loving kindness will be explored as a meditative quality and also as an essential tool for living life from the heart.
