About This Event
Recent research says that most of us spend nearly 50 percent of our time thinking about something other than what we’re doing, usually replaying events of the past or worrying about an imagined future, both contributing to stress and unhappiness. Mindfulness is the practice of cultivating present moment awareness by paying attention on purpose, with a sense of openness, curiosity, and patience. Through this lens, we are able to tap inner resources for greater clarity, ease, compassion, and resilience.
This half-day experiential retreat blends an introduction to the principles of mindfulness with periods of practice, including guided sitting and walking meditation, body scan and mindful communication. We will explore simple opportunities to bring mindful practice into daily life, and you will learn tips and resources for continued practice.

As always, a delightful evening!. Thoughts: 1. May want to publish an agenda in future. Not wise to be fashionably late. Reports were that the event was in full swing at 6:30 PM and 6:45 arrival felt like we were catching up. 2. Would be wise to provide the wifi information so everyone could connect for the text fundraiser. Verizon worked but several people near me said that they could not connect using ATT. The wifi would allow everyone to connect See you next year!!

The Copper Beech Institute offers a wide variety of courses, meditations, workshops and is housed on a beautiful peace of property. I enjoy the Wednesday Candlelight Meditation as a group or 30-40 of us meet to share this mindful experience and are led by the incredible Miranda who always gives a talk that seems to hit home. This place is filled with such love and kindness. Go check it out!
