Mindfulness In Every Day Life Retreat – Saturday, March 30, 2019

Staff and faculty are invited (along with your friends or family members) to a morning of slowing down, self care and kind exploration. This half day retreat is open to everyone, whether you are experienced in meditation practice or are new to mindfulness.  We will explore mindfulness practices that encourage our hearts and minds to be present in ways that are relaxed, kind and compassionate.  When we connect to the present moment, we are able to see more clearly the patterns that create stress in our lives and we discover that each moment offers an opportunity to nurture our innate capacity for kindness and wisdom.  Register here.

Saturday, March 30th from 9:00 a.m. to noon in the 4th floor lounge of Old Main.  The cost is $25 and a minimum of 8 participants are needed.  Wear comfortable clothing, and bring a yoga mat and a water bottle.
Instructor: Jane Rauenhorst
