aspect of ourselves.The time we spend on retreat can help us reconnect with our true nature.
It also takes us out of our comfort zone and can therefore be challenging. It's a great opportunity to stretch yourself.

writing exercises, and free time to hike, walk the labyrinth, explore the grounds or use the pools. There will always be coffee,

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.
