"We must always change, renew, rejuvenate ourselves, otherwise we harden." ~ Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
Rejuvenate with Mindfulness
Franciscan Renewal Center in Scottsdale, Arizona
Friday, February 2- Sunday, February 4, 2018
In partnership with the Scottsdale Institute for Health and Medicine.
Join us at the beautiful Franciscan Renewal Center in Scottsdale, Arizona for a rejuvenating weekend retreat based on the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Program, created by Jon Kabat-Zinn.
This 3-day, 2-night retreat is an ideal way to renew your spirit and mind through the many practices of mindfulness, while enjoying the warm sunshine and serene beauty of the Southwest. We will experience various meditation practices, stretch our bodies with mindful movement and connect with each other, all while providing an open spaciousness to explore whatever arises. This is not a silent retreat, but rather we intend to use our time together to connect, learn and cultivate a sense of lightheartedness and ease in our practice and our lives.
This retreat is appropriate for all levels of practitioners, those new to the mindfulness as well as those who wish to renew and deepen their connection to the practice.
Just starting? Learn about mindfulness, how to practice and the many benefits you may experience
Been practicing awhile? Renew your knowledge and reenergize your practice.
Been practicing for a long time? Bring your beginner's mind and allow yourself to rediscover the practice all over again.
