Becoming Present: From Auto-Pilot to Aware

About This Event

Becoming Present: From Auto-Pilot to Aware is a foundational experience of mindfulness. During your time in this online course, you’ll be introduced to practices, a primer in mindfulness, and invitations to learn in the moment. Mindfulness is an experiential process that unfolds gradually and is highly individual. This course is created with all of this in mind. With several learning formats in the mix, you’ll explore this practice of presence and awareness, through a guided journey with Copper Beech Institute facilitator, Sandrine.

Whether you are looking to reduce stress, create a better team dynamic at work, communicate more effectively, or are just curious about what mindfulness is and how it might benefit you … this course is for you!

No prior experience is needed, and this course is designed to be accessible to people from all walks of life, and also for those for whom English is a second language.

Tuition for this course is $25.

      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 :)
