Mini Meditation Retreat
Sunday March 3rd 9am-1pm
Join Dallas for this four-hour introduction to the profound beauty of silence and meditation. This 4-hour mini retreat will be held at the Rise Yoga studio.
During the retreat Dallas will guide you through a series of meditation practices designed to guide the mind in slowing. She will teach you the art and support you in practicing seated meditation, walking meditation, a meditation technique called a body scan, and eating as a mindful practice (Please bring a brown bag lunch.) The day will also include a gentle yoga practice.
The retreat will be a mixture of Dallas verbally guiding you through the skills as well as plenty of space for silence where you’ll practice them independently. Being supported by and confident in silence is a skill. Slowing down the mind is a skill. Developing these skills is directly supporting to your mental and physical health. Meditation practices cultivate the ability to direct your attention, sustain your focus, and lessen your reactivity to world both around and within you.
Come practice these essential life skills with us.
This retreat will be suitable for a wide range of meditation practitioners. It’s suitable for folks brand new to meditation as Dallas will guide you through the practice. If you are a long time meditators you likely already know the value of silence within a group, it’s different than the silence of an individual. You’ll find plenty to draw from in this retreat. It’s suitable for folks with a wide range of physical abilities/mobilities. The yoga, seated, and walking portions of the practice are adaptable to your needs. We’ll have chairs and props available to you and Dallas will support you in finding a position where you will be able to comfortably slow down and connect to your inner voice through silence and meditation.
The cost of the retreat is $50 or $40 if you are a Rise Members (Members are those on the Monthly or Annual Membership Plans.)
