All-day Retreat: Saturday, November 12, 2022, 8:45am-4:30 pm More About Mindfulness: A common motivator for people coming to mindfulness is a feeling that your life isn't working in the ways you would like it to work. In one way or another, you are suffering. This desire for things to be different than they are is human. It is a feeling shared by most, especially during a pandemic. We are passionate about this work because it has helped us and those we serve to show up in the ways we most desire-living fuller, healthier, and more present lives. Throughout our weeks together, I will introduce you to several doors to the same place. All that is required is a willingness to show up and a desire to participate throughout the 8-week course.
To cancel or reschedule a 1-on-1 session, please contact me at least 24 hours in advance. Any appointment canceled less than 24 hours in advance will not be refunded. MBSR courses may be refunded up to 7 days after the orientation by written request. It is my sincere hope that my offerings will be of service to you and your family.
