A silent day of continuous practice at the beautiful Tacoma Nature Center

         

During this day-long retreat we will be guided 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:
Sunday, February 24,  9 AM - 4 PM

Instructor: Karen Schwisow, E-RYT, Mindfulness Northwest Senior Instructor. Karen is certified to teach MBSR by the Center for Mindfulness at the University of Massachusetts.

Please bring:

  • Your lunch
  • Layered clothing (including rain gear) as we often do walking meditation outside when possible.
  • A blanket for keeping warm during times of stillness or lying down.
  • An exercise or yoga mat if you have one.

Please see the MBSR page to review details about the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction program. This Day of Mindfulness is based on the MBSR principles and practices. MBSR is a well-researched class designed by Jon Kabat-Zinn and the Center for Mindfulness at the Univ. of Massachusetts. It has proven very effective in helping with many stress-related issues.
