A silent day of continuous practice at the beautiful Brightwater Environmental Education Center.
  

A silent day of continuous practice in Woodinville at the beautiful Brightwater Environmental Education and Community Center. This new facility, situated on the edge of a hill with spacious views across the valley, is located roughly 20-25 minutes from Bellevue.

This day-long retreat will be led by Mindfulness Northwest senior teacher Karen Schwisow who will guide us in a sequence of meditation and mindfulness practices including: sitting meditation, the body scan, walking meditation (indoors and out!), gentle mindful yoga, and contemplative practices like the loving-kindness meditation.

The retreat is designed especially for those who have taken Mindfulness Northwest classes. A day to gather, see old friends, and reinvigorate our practice together. Others with teacher-led meditation experience or a background in contemplative practice are invited to join as well. If you are totally new to meditation this day may be a challenge but you're welcome to inquire; and, for some, "jumping in" is a great way to start.

Schedule:
Saturday October 28th, 9:00am - 4:00pm.

Location:
Brightwater Environmental Education Center
22505 State Route 9 SE
