Living Presence: An Mindfulness & Resilience Immersion – July 2019

About This Event

Life can present us with incredible challenges and hardships; life is also filled with breathtaking beauty and joy. Built upon the core contemplative values of Copper Beech Institute, Living Presence provides an experiential course of study and practice to cultivate equanimity, healing and resilience.

No matter the circumstance, presence is the most powerful resource we have that can be harnessed in the service of connection, compassion, and deep joy. This course will offer opportunities to discover the natural calm and stability living within all of us. Through mindfulness and contemplative practices that can help us live more fully within the present moment, we will explore how to ease suffering and cultivate lasting contentment while working within the ordinary routines, stressors, and triggers of daily life.

With simple practice, it is possible to live more resiliently and radiantly and with greater ease, acceptance, gratitude, and compassion for ourselves and others. Whether we encounter minor disappointments, moderate hardships or significant trauma, growth is always possible. This gentle immersion in mindfulness will awaken in us a deepening awareness in mind, body, heart and spirit.

Class Dates: Monday’s July 15, 22, 29, August 5, 12, 19 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

      Harvest Celebration 2018

    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!!

      A Magical Place

    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!

Thank you!

We're glad you've joined our retreat community. See you around :)

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

After participating in more yoga classes and events this year than in my entire life, I am yearning for the opportunity to attend a professional retreat. The opportunity to grow my practice, learn from talented students and teachers, and immerse myself in this gorgeous Red Feather Lakes sanctuary is the dream of a lifetime! Sara

Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
