It also takes us out of our comfort zone and can therefore be challenging. It's a great opportunity to stretch yourself. There will be plenty of support for you from the leaders of the retreat.

The program will include periods of meditation, Body awareness practice including 3 Yoga sessions, walking meditation, writing exercises, and free time to hike, walk the labyrinth, explore the grounds or use the pools.

Our Guest Teachers

Yoga with Nicole Wakim MD

From our first experience of Nicole Wakim leading yoga during a day of Mindfulness retreat we knew she was going to be part of the Mindful-Way team. The seamless flow of more than 20 years of yoga practice combined with the attention of working mindfully, safely and painlessly while challenging and supporting students of every level to deepen their experience of yoga were exactly what you would hope to get from a mindful yoga teacher. Especially one who also happens to be a board certified anesthesiologist with her own pain management and sports injury clinic.

In these busy times it is easy to lose sight of what is most meaningful in our lives, sometimes taking for granted so much of this precious life. The practice of Mindfulness Meditation in a silent day long format with the support of community and experienced teachers, allows us to cultivate our true and natural compassionate presence. This presence then becomes a gift to all whose lives we touch. You are invited to join us for a day of practice, to clear our minds and open our hearts.
"Enter the Now from wherever you are."
-Eckhart Tolle
