Falling Into Kindness: Body, Heart, and Mind

In person in Blaine (Semiahmoo)

1-day retreat

As the season turns, let’s renew our commitment to deep self-care, rooted in mindful self-compassion with the support of gentle and accessible body-based practices.

At this quiet day of practice, look forward to meditations to ground and center, self-compassion exercises to explore emotional wellness, and gentle yoga, self-massage, and self-acupressure.
