Summer Mindfulness Meditation Retreat Day at Prairiewoods
- 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. -
- All Ages
“Dwelling in stillness and looking inward for some part of each day, we touch what is most real and reliable in ourselves and most easily overlooked and undeveloped,” writes Jon Kabat-Zinn in Wherever You Go, There You Are: Mindfulness Meditation in Everyday Life. “When we can be centered in ourselves, even for brief periods of time in the face of the pull of the outer world, not having to look elsewhere for something to fill us up or make us happy, we can be at home wherever we find ourselves, at peace with things as they are, moment by moment.” This retreat day at Prairiewoods (120 East Boyson Road in Hiawatha) is facilitated by Chris Klug. It will be spent in silence practicing mindfulness through sitting meditation, walking meditation, mindful movement and mindful eating. There will be time for sharing and questions during the final 30 minutes. Please bring your own lunch. The cost is $50 (but a reduced fee is available for those of limited means).
