Embodying Presence: The Practice of Awakening
About This Event
Coming home to yourself is a process of daily awakening. In this day retreat, you are invited on a journey to deepen your self-understanding, self-care, compassion and happiness. With the practices of meditative movement, breathwork, and mindfulness meditation, we access the innate wisdom of the body to discover the path of awareness. Awareness cultivates the gifts of living in the present moment. Embodied practice invites us to draw our attention to habits and patterns of being — including reactivity, feelings of overwhelm, and fearfulness. Through guided explorations, we will learn about transforming these challenges, as well as honoring them. When we awaken to the present moment, fully and with self-compassion, we begin to transform difficulty into learning.
Throughout this retreat, we'll go deep into the process of unfolding presence within ourselves, and in the understanding that we are always connected to others. To observe our minds with kind attention and outside of judgment, we will build the shape of heartfulness. Presence is a potent path to clarity in mind and body, and with supported self-care, we'll walk this path to heartful awakening, together.
Come and enrich your practice of presence through awareness and discovery, unfolding the deepest layers of self-acceptance, choice, kindness and connection. No experience with movement or meditation is needed, and all are welcome. Please wear comfortable clothing to move in, and please bring a journal and pen.

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!
