AWAKE Experiene: ONE-DAY MINDFULNESS RETREAT
AWAKE is a day-long mindfulness experience including mindful meditation, dharma talks, qi gong/ti chi, music, chant, yoga nidra and more led by your favorite guides in your own back yard. AWAKE is chance to slow down and spend a day mindfully uncovering the true YOU. We are sure you will leave feeling embodied, radiant, peaceful, at ease and ready to connect more deeply with your life and the relationships within it. Enjoy this retreat from every day busyness to experience YOU. YOU are NOT the roles you play, the things you own or the emotions you have. YOU are limitless, pure, peaceful and powerful potential just waiting to be discovered.
How it works…
Mindfulness is present moment awareness. Without a mindfulness practice you most likely spend your days planning the future or worrying about the past. You may be busy trying to get happy by working hard to change external, worldly things like your roles, job, income, material items and relationships. At AWAKE you spend the day coming back again and again to presence. This is where you’ll discover everything you’ve always wanted is already within. You will see directly that you already are complete. Already one with source/God/peace. Throughout your day you’ll be guided by multiple masterful guides to return to your body, breath and peaceful mind. You’ll deeply feel the your sensations, you’ll tune into your mind, you’ll hear the music and see the beauty of your surroundings. You will AWAKE to the true YOU.
