COME HOME TO YOURSELF: A weekend retreat


"Go back and take care of yourself. Your body needs you, your feelings need you, your perceptions need you...Go home and be there for all these things." - Thich Nhat Hanh

In this weekend retreat “Come Home to Yourself,” we will learn to apply mindfulness to ourselves, our intimate relationships, workplaces and communities. Together we will practice group sharing, nature-based activities, InterPlay, along with periods of noble silence that will nourish our happiness, gratitude, and serenity in our daily life.

Each day there will be sessions of yoga, meditation, sitting and walking meditation, group discussions, eating mindfully (with some part of the meal in silence) and deep relaxation. We will also learn InterPlay, a powerful mindfulness tool to grow ease, connection, and wisdom through play.

This retreat will be offered on a sliding scale.  Please pay as much as you can afford so that everyone who wants to attend is able to.
