Come join us for a day of nourishing silence, mindful awareness practices, and reflection. Develop your capacity to be fully alive, to rest in your present moment experience with openness and kindness. You will be guided through a variety of mindful awareness practices including sitting and walking meditation, mindful eating, mindful movement, deep listening and mindful speech. There will be meditations for cultivating sensory clarity, focus, loving-kindness, and compassion. This day is for beginners as well as those with prior meditation experience.
