The Mindful Path of Self-Compassion
Winter workshop in the Forest
Winter is a time to slow down and reflect, to rejuvenate, and to take it easy on ourselves. During these colder months we pause to turn inwards, seeking reflection, rest and insight. Mindfulness can be a very useful tool for expanding our self-awareness as well as developing self-compassion, a skill that adds comfort and warmth to the short introspective days of winter. Mindfulness can also lead us to the joyous discovery of simple pleasures, golden gifts of life to help get us through the cold, dark days.
The forest in winter is a mystical place. Experience the crisp winter air that invigorates and inspires us with its expansiveness and impermanence. Discover a forest filled with winter fungi and resilient native wildflowers. Warm up by the campfire, rug up in a blanket, sip a hot cacao and enjoy our guided meditations and workshop offerings.
2021 unfortunately cancelled. Stay tuned for 2022 dates.
