OVERVIEW

We now provide a Youth Mindfulness Retreat along with our traditional day-long Mindfulness Retreat for adults. While adults participate in their own day of retreat, our Mindful Family teacher, will take the youth through fun and calming Mindfulness activities.

Our children are the most precious things /beings we have in our lives. We often wish that we had the opportunity as a kid to practice Mindfulness so we wouldn’t be nervous, anxious, worry and fearful when things go wrong. Well, here is an opportunity for both you and your children to learn these techniques. Most importantly, learning how to love oneself, be compassionate and connected with the family, community and support system.

During the Youth Mindfulness Retreat, they will practice to have a present mind to take actions through clarity and calm. At this day-long Mindfulness Retreat, everything is taken care of for you and your family to practice in a peaceful environment away from the grudge of the daily life. We offer a home cooked vegetarian soup for the day-long retreats, tea, drinking water and other snacks. Please feel free to provide other food more suitable for your child.

On the agenda is a Mindfulness talk/ discussion, Mindful eating and engaging in yogi jobs, light Mindful stretching, walking meditation, napping meditation, Mindful activities in a natural setting.  The retreat is held at a peaceful and beautiful private home in a relaxing and spacious environment. Join us with your kids to grow and deepen peacefulness, mindful communication, Loving/Kindness, attentiveness, focus and mutual respect.

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)
