Mind into Matter Retreat
A Different Kind of Mindfulness Retreat
"Everything is created twice, first in the mind and then in reality.” -Robin S. Sharma
Join us for this two-day retreat which weaves personal and group training in the practice of mindfulness into a relate- able, creative, and effective experience. Whether you're interested in beginning a mindfulness practice for personal reasons, need help through a life or professional transition, or wish to apply the principles of mindfulness to your career, this retreat designed for you. Mindfulness is not something we strive for, it is the simple act of choosing to honestly notice where we are without judgement. It is the practice of accepting and cherishing what is. When you allow yourself to be where you are, you can create the moment, the life, that you want.
The Training: Throughout the weekend, you will learn to cultivate and experience the practice of mindfulness in a variety of different settings, allowing you to gain an understanding of how mindfulness is not simply something you do, it's a way to approach life. You'll move with your group and on your own through different elements of mindfulness practice including 1:1 personal coaching, guided meditation sessions, lectures on mindfulness integration, yoga, and meditation hikes. From 8am-6pm each day, you will be learning ways to become more present in what you do, and how to apply these skills to further your goals.

"My passion is simply helping people understand that they're already doing yoga perfectly," Anna says. "We teach exercises that create change and growth, but it's really allowing people to see yoga as an extension of themselves. A way to create joy, confidence, and that deeper sense of peace."
