Spring Into Kindness: Body, Heart, and Mind

In person in Bellevue

1-day retreat

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

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