FULLY ALIVE IN THE HERE AND NOW: A SPRING STRESS CLEANSE-May 2015

Sundays May 31 – June 21
2:00pm to 4:00pm

There’s nothing like life in the present moment! When our minds are at peace and our bodies are free from tension we see others and ourselves in the light of love and understanding and we feel in tune with ourselves and the world. This is our natural state, yet, over time, the stresses and pressures of daily life take their toll, leaving us depleted and disconnected.

In this four-week workshop, you will learn mindfulness and embodiment practices that will cleanse the clutter of everyday life and restore your vitality and resilience. Together we will practice stress-relieving meditations, guided visualizations, and meditative yoga that will reconnect you to your deepest self, the core of your being. We will also discuss how to integrate these practices into daily life.

Investment: $180 for all four weeks

  1. Very good article. I certainly love this site.

  2. A fascinating discussion is worth comment. I do think that you should publish more about this topic, it might
    not be a taboo matter but typically folks don’t speak about such
    topics. To the next! Best wishes!!
