Inviting Fluidity of Being
Online Intensive Mindfulness Meditation Retreat - led by Stephanie Nash, Bonnie Colby, and Campbell Miller - Feb. 7-11, 2024
Due to Stephanie's spinal surgery, this retreat has been postponed until Feb. 7-11. If you have registered, your registration will be applied to the new date, but if the new date does not work for you we will provide a full refund.
For this unique offering, we will co-create an experience that employs healing movement, touch, & play into the fabric of this mindfulness retreat. Unlike traditional meditation retreats, there will be emphasis on fluidity in content, form & structure that will hopefully lead to insight, purification, and present-moment awareness & appreciation. Good stuff! Join us for this one-of-a-kind event.
The structure of the retreat will support a more intensive meditation retreat schedule for those who want to dive deep, with the option for taking a less intense route - as serves you best. Everything is optional. In any event, this is an opportunity to deepen your meditation practice from your own home while exploring the above themes.
The retreat will have silent sits in the online meditation hall from 5:30 am through 10:00 pm. Even though we are in an online environment, you will have the presence and support of other meditators. You may choose which of these sits to attend in order to optimize your meditation practice.
The retreat will consist of guided Unified Mindfulness meditation instruction, guided embodiment practices, a daily talk on a related topic, and an opportunity for Q&A.
Special Guest Co-teachers: We are also fortunate to have two special guest teachers, in addition to Stephanie. Bonnie Colby Ph.D. and Campbell Miller. Stephanie, Bonnie & Campbell are coordinating their teachings at this retreat for optimal effective support.
When: The retreat will begin in the evening on Wed. Feb. 7 and end by lunch on Sun. Feb. 11
Fee: The cost of this 5 day (four night) virtual retreat is $150. You will also have the opportunity to offer Dana (donation) to the teachers to help support their teaching. Scholarships are available and no one will be turned away due to inability to pay. You may apply for a scholarship during the registration process.
