Learn To Meditate
October 4–6, 2019
Working with your mind is one of the most beneficial skills you can learn, yet most of us don’t even know where to start. Through the practice of meditation, it is possible to balance your thoughts and emotions, become less distracted and reactive, and be more engaged and responsive in your life. While meditation itself is simple, it is important to start with the right view, take the correct posture, and know how to work with common obstacles. During this immersive weekend, you’ll learn everything you need to know to jumpstart your personal meditation practice. Through learning contemplative practices, participating in group discussions and spending time in nature away from the speed and busyness of daily life, you will return home feeling focused and relaxed.
