A Day of Mindfulness
With the ClearLight Faculty
Saturday November 3 | 9:00 AM – 3:30 PM
This is a special opportunity to Immerse yourself in the practice of mindfulness with expert mindfulness teachers Scott and Nancy McBride and the ClearLight Faculty. You will be guided in sitting meditation, walking meditation, mindful yoga, the body scan, self-compassion practice and more. In the last hour there will be an opportunity to share with others and ask questions of the Directors. The benefit of spending longer time in the practice of mindfulness is forging the new neural networks that bring about the peace, happiness, and well-being we are seeking.
Seating options include cushions and chairs. Please bring a yoga mat, a water bottle and a bag lunch to eat mindfully together at mid-day. There will be no time to go out for lunch. Dress comfortably in layers and be prepared to go outside rain or shine.
This retreat is designed for anyone with an existing mindfulness meditation practice. It is also offered as a companion program to the ClearLight Beginners Meditation Course and all our Foundations Courses. The day is a wonderful and supportive entry into extended meditation practice and a chance to interact with our teachers. Please join us!
The flow of the day was perfect. Sitting meditations broken up with active meditations was an ideal set up. It wasn’t daunting at all.First time retreat participant
This day was much more than I anticipated. You start being mindful as soon as you walk in the door….Eating mindfully – it can be done and is amazing! Who knew? … I know it is hard to set aside time but it was well worth it!Andrea Maier, first time retreat participant
The programs are run by people who practice what they “preach.” Extremely knowledgeable and seem to exude kindness.First time retreat participant
