Mindfulness is more necessary than ever right now. We all know that it’s good for our minds, and hearts, and communities, especially during this time of heightened anxiety, fear, and loss. And, we also need a foundation of ethical values to help us weather this storm and keep us connected to what is important, what we care about, and how we want to respond. In this online daylong retreat, we’ll explore how ethical conduct supports equanimity and compassion, and how we can draw inspiration from each other during these challenging times.
Guided practices will include mindfulness meditation, movement, and opportunities for connection with others. There will be breaks. No experience with mindfulness meditation or movement practice necessary.
In order to participate in this online event, you will need a computer or tablet with good internet connection. It will be helpful to find a space in your home where you can participate throughout the day with privacy, and minimal interruptions (as best you can!).
