with Susan C. Stone, Ph.D.
Registration begins Friday 4:00 PM, Program begins Friday 8:00 PM and ends on Sunday at 12:00 PM
As long as we are locked into stress, we cannot live fully. Take a break from stress and join us for this experiential workshop-retreat where you will:
- Practice powerful mindfulness techniques to reduce stress, gain greater clarity, and achieve peace
- Explore the transformative connection between mindfulness and the heart’s opening in loving kindness
- Be guided in establishing a personal mindfulness program for dealing with obstacles or problems
- Explore mindfulness as a path supporting your highest spiritual aspiration
There will be opportunity for individual conferences with the teacher. This program is designed for people new to mindfulness practice as well as seasoned practitioners.
Anxious thoughts and emotional reactions prevent us from truly experiencing the richness of the moment. Mindfulness is a way to free our lives.
This practice works, as a growing body of scientific research and the testimony of practitioners from a wide range of religious backgrounds affirm.
Susan has an easy way of presenting difficult material.
All of Susan’s meditations, insight, and information were wonderful, enlightening and affirming!
