Befriending the World through Mindfulness: Insight Meditation Retreat

Registration for this retreat is closed

Registration is closed for this retreat.
February 04 - February 11, 2023 (Saturday to Saturday)

As we bring awareness to our body, feelings, thoughts and emotions, and whatever is arising in each moment, we gain insight into the ever-changing stream of our experience. With guided meditation and instructions, we will sit, stand, lie down and walk with silent meditative presence. Through these practices we can reduce stress, open to wellbeing, and investigate our unconscious biases. As we gain benevolence and cultivate non-harming in this way, we can befriend ourselves and the world around us. This retreat is open to all.

An optional daily period of mindful movement will be offered by Éowyn Ahlstrom.

12.5 continuing education credits are available for psychologists, social workers and nurses. Please check our CE page for more information.

All Hemera Contemplative Fellowships have been awarded for 2023. Please feel free to check back in 2023 for any updates.
