Morning Mindfulness Retreat

  • June 22, 2014 · 9:00 AM


Join us as we greet the start of summer with an extended morning of mindfulness practice. If you have been thinking or curious about what it would be like, but are not quite ready to commit to a full day, weekend or week long retreat, this might be a gentle way to "put your toe in the water" and give it a try.

The morning time together will involve immersing yourself in both guided and silent mindfulness meditations, gentle yoga, a bit of mindful eating, and reflective journaling. Use this time to go deeper with your practice or reconnect to one that may have been forgotten some time ago.

This opportunity is for adults who have some experience with meditation or who have taken or participated in an MBSR (Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction) program. So, if you have some familiarity with mindfulness, meditation or yoga practices, this might indeed be just the program for you. 

This retreat may be more challenging for those who have never meditated before, so you might prefer attending the "Taste of Mindfulness" classes I hold once a month at the same location to learn how to meditate prior to attending. (Sunday April 13th and Sunday May 18th 10AM to 11:15AM are the next two dates for the Taste of Mindfulness Practice)


TIME: 9AM to 12:30PM

COST: $25 fee per participant 

LOCATION: BYPC (Bedford Youth Performing Company) 155 Route 101 Bedford, NH

Please send me your contact information/email address so that I can send you a more detailed welcome letter to the retreat with information on what to bring along with you for your comfort.

Also, please plan on arriving 15 minutes prior to the start time to settle in, pay for the course, and make your self comfortable so we can start promptly at 9AM.

Thank you!

    Greetings! We have 21 participants. Please remember to arrive anytime after 8:30AM and be ready to start by 9AM. Bring yoga mats and any thing else for your comfort. Notebook and a pen, as well as a delicious snack for a mindful eating exercise. Please have your checks made out ahead of time if possible and you can pay cash, Visa or MasterCard as well. See you all tomorrow. Park out back, or out front, but the only door that you can access for class is the back door facing AWAY from Route 101. We are just inside.
