Like painting or playing an instrument, releasing cumulative stress is a skill that can be honed through practice. This weekend retreat is an immersion into gentle mind-body practices to release muscular tension, calm the nervous system, digest emotional distress, and de-clutter the mind. Expect very gentle stretching and breath-based movement, guided progressive relaxations, personal journaling, mindful group sharing, and indoor/outdoor contemplative practices. Excerpts from the speeches of Martin Luther King Jr. will offer a reflection on the power of practicing care for ourselves as a skillful means to deepen our sensitivity and attentiveness to others and the world. Held at the beautiful Arboretum.
Limited to 12 participants. Advance registration required.
