Copper Beech Fall Day of Mindfulness: Making Peace with Life – 2018

About This Event

At Copper Beech Institute, we believe that mindfulness practice and contemplative wisdom can awaken our full potential for compassionate action and encourage a healing shift in how we relate to one another and our interconnected world. Days of mindfulness at Copper Beech Institute provide space and time for practitioners with prior meditation experience to deepen their practice in a warm and supportive community. The day includes periods of mindfulness practice, teaching, conversation, periods of silence, and a nourishing lunch.

Days of Mindfulness are held seasonally throughout the year and follow this typical schedule:

10:00 Arrival Practice and Welcome

10:30 Sitting and Walking Meditation

11:30 Dharma Talk and Sharing

12:30 Lunch and Free Time

2:00 Walking Meditation at the Labyrinth and Sharing

3:00 Sitting and Lovingkindness Meditation

4:00 Departure

      Harvest Dinner Dueling Pianos.

    As always Holy Family/ Copper Beach ALWAYS exceeds my expectations. Do yourself a favor, ATTEND a RETREAT, you will be hooked.

      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!

      Skilled and compassionate

    Kate is everything you would want in a mindfulness/yoga teacher. Her years of training and experience shine through, as well as her heartfelt approach. You will not regret any class or retreat you take with Kate!

      Memorable

    I've been on retreat twice now with Kate as the leader, coordinator, and Mindfullness Instructor. Both locations thoughtfully selected - serene, beautiful - with good optional excursions providing a full, balanced experience. Food good, healthy, plentiful! The groups are 20 or less folks, mostly women but men too. Kate has years of experience as health care provider, yoga and mindfulness instructor and is attune to the needs of the group so can adjust as necessary. Likes to laugh (even at herself), has good sense of humor, and goes with what the universe presents! I often return in my mind to our retreats, and use the lessons in my daily life. Another bonus is her yoga colleague providing anatomy, balls, and philosophy for all levels of practitioners. Everything is provided lightly, with good humor and gratitude for the shared experience. Memorable!!!

      You Will Love Her!

    I have both co-taught with, and been a student of, Kate Mitcheom. I loved doing both. She brings all the wisdom, savvy, humor, integrity, energy, enthusiasm, and open-heartedness that allowed her to steadfastly bring both mindfulness and excellent prenatal care to inner city teen girls for many years, to her mindfulness classes and retreats. She makes me laugh, she makes me think, she inspires me. I love spending time with her, and learning from her, and I bet you will, too.

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:

Having our beautiful baby boy 3 months ago gave me a new perspective and outlook moving forward. Liana
