Diving into Mindfulness

A five hour workshop and retreat

Saturday, January 7, 2023

9am - 2pm Central Time

In-Person @ Casa de Luz

In the midst of our busy lives, we can easily forget to make time to be present for ourselves and for each other. This is why intentionally carving out time in our busy lives to care for the health of our mind, body, and heart is essential for personal and professional development.  

In this five hour workshop/retreat, you will have plenty of opportunities to formally practice various mindfulness techniques, while also learning a mindfulness approach rooted in the science of the mind, body, and brain. 
 

If you are a therapist, a teacher, a mother, a father, a working professional, or anyone curious to learn how to be more at ease with themselves, this workshop/retreat is perfect for you!

Program Overview

During our time together, you will progress through an intensive study and embodied practice of mindfulness meditation: what it is, what it isn’t, and how to integrate it into your daily life to reduce stress and optimize health, healing, and wellbeing.

 

The workshop will be educational and experiential, introducing participants to various forms of mindfulness practice, including various forms of breathing meditations, a choiceless awareness meditation, body scan meditation, walking meditation, eating meditation; and informal practices, such as dropping into the Body, reconnecting with the Senses, 1 minute to arrive, and many more.

By the end of the day, most participants are walking away with feeling of calm and rest, while also carrying with them a functional understanding of mindfulness, and the strategies necessary to build a consistent practice at home, work, and life.

 

All teachings are non-religious, and rooted in the science of the mind, body, and brain.
