Mindfulness Retreat

UPDATE 6/5/14: There are 18 participants registered for the retreat, and I have room for 2 more. So, if you are thinking about joining us please email cbhoward@mac.com or call 603-801-8945 to reserve your spot soon.


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 and Bell Hill Road Bedford, NH

Please call or email me (see contact information above) to register for the retreat. Space is limited and to insure adequate room is given for all particpants, I suggest signing up early.

No fee is required until the date of the event. I accept cash, check, Visa or MasterCard. Once you register, you will receive a detailed letter explaining what to bring, wear and more.

I look forward to hearing from you. It is my pleasure to continue to provide opportunities like this to everyone as long as the interest is there. Ideally, I am hoping to offer this opportunity 2 or 3 times per year.
