    OVERVIEW

    Setting Intention is our traditional day-long Mindfulness Retreat to start the new year with clear intentions, goals and aspirations. At this retreat we glance over the past year and reflect on the year to come. We refresh our vision for health and well-being, for what’s important to accomplish. Perhaps, we aim for doing less. You may bring your children or tell a friend to bring their children to share this wonderful experience as well. While you are participating in your own day of retreat, our Mindful Family teacher, will be taking the youth through fun and calming Mindfulness activities.

    We practice to have a present mind so we may take actions through clarity. At this day-long Mindfulness Retreat for setting great intentions, 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, drinking water and other snacks. On the agenda is a Mindfulness talk/ discussion, Mindful eating and engaging in yogi jobs, light Mindful stretching, walking meditation, lying meditation, sitting meditation and more.  It’s held at a peaceful and beautiful private home in a relaxing and spacious environment. Join us to set a Mindful and present tone for the year to come.

    WE PRACTICE:

    Although we will be looking at the past and the future, at this Mindfulness Retreat, 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…..(poem by Manijeh Motaghy)
