“Be where you are; otherwise you will miss your life.”

- Buddha

I know it’s not just me — you too, feel the speed at which life is passing. It’s as if time has accelerated, and we’re in danger of falling behind in a culture obsessed with busyness and hurry. This very thought is capable of elevating one’s anxiety level. Is there an antidote? A way to s-l-o-w down time? Yes. And the way is through mindfulness. Mindfulness includes many practices that all have one purpose: to tap into the rarely encountered present moment. Our minds are very good at holding our attention in the past (rumination, reflection) and the future (worry, anticipation). In the present moment, a field of awareness opens and you are capable of observing without clinging, resisting or judging. In this retreat, Maddy and Kelley will serve as your guides to help you shift from auto-pilot to intentional presence. Individual and group practices include forest bathing, meditation, yoga, journaling and contemplation. You’ll be warmly welcomed into an intimate group of women, take adventurous hikes, flow on your yoga mat, and enjoy delicious food and soul stirring conversations. You will learn how to tap into a new way of being that reduces anxiety and overwhelm and returns you to a natural state of ease and inner peace. And, perhaps most importantly, you’ll be more present in your life and the beauty that already surrounds you.
