Take a Leap into 2018: Establish Your Intention and Commitment
Shastri Jon Barbieri
December 29, 2017–January 1, 2018
Join us for this special retreat and allow your aspirations for the New Year to become clear, confident and committed through reflection and renewal. We will go beyond the usual goal focused resolutions and learn how to go deeper and reconnect with our innate insight and wisdom and see renewal as a further step in our life’s journey.
Our gathering will include guided mindfulness-awareness meditation, contemplative practices, and open time to rest and reflect.
On New Year’s Eve we will celebrate with a fabulous full course dinner.
NOTE: Update on registration/new year’s dinner. If you are thinking of attending, you are strongly encouraged to register by December 22nd in order for us to prepare for the incredible meal served for New Year’s.
