    Setting Intention For 2019!

    A Day-Long Mindfulness Retreat:

    Sunday, January 20, 2019

    10:30 am – 5:30 pm


    Setting Intention is our traditional day-long Mindfulness Retreat to start the new year. At this retreat we glance over the year past and reflect on the year to come. We refresh our vision for health and well-being, for new goals and accomplishments. Perhaps, we aim for doing less.

    We continue to learn to be present so we may take actions through clarity. At this day-long Mindfully setting intention retreat, everything is taken care of for you to practice in a peaceful environment away from the grudge of your daily life. There will be a home cooked vegetarian soup, tea and other snacks.  On the agenda is a Mindfulness talk/ discussion, Mindfully eating and engaging in yogi jobs, light Mindful stretching, walking meditation, lying meditation, sitting meditation and more.  It’s held at a peaceful beautiful home in Calabasas in a relaxing and spacious environment. Join us to set a Mindful and present tone for the year to come.

    Although we will be looking at the past and the future, we practice to know that,

    It is all right here, right now.

    Only if I could be with whatever is present with me,
    Only if I could sit and not resist,
    Only if I would not take anything personal,
    Only if I could resort to my own inner joy,
    Only if I knew how nothing is for sure,
    Only if I were here now……

    Perfectly Here, with no clinging or conflict.
    Peacefully here now…..


    Must be at least 16 years of age.  No prior classes or experience with meditation is necessary.


    This retreat does NOT take place at the Perfectly Here center, it’s at a private residence in Calabasas. This retreat will take place at 24232 Dry Canyon Cold Creek Rd. Calabasas, CA 91302.
