"We must always change, renew, rejuvenate ourselves, otherwise we harden." ~ Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
"For beginners, this is a great way to immerse yourself in the various practices of mindfulness as well as learn some of the science and history behind it. And if you are lucky, like we were, you become part of a sangha that is very special."

JOIN US LIVE ONLINE
The 5th Annual
Rejuvenate with Mindfulness Retreat
offered via the Zoom Online meeting platform.
Friday, January 15- Sunday, January 17, 2021
In partnership with the Scottsdale Institute for Health and Medicine.
Join us for a rejuvenating weekend retreat based on the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Program, created by Jon Kabat-Zinn, from the comfort of your own space.
This retreat held over 3 days and 2 nights, is an ideal way to renew your spirit and mind through the many practices of mindfulness, guided by your two expert teachers. Together, online, 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.

A note about attending a mindfulness retreat online.
You may be wondering whether it's possible to create the same sense of community and shared space online as is typically found on retreat in person. Well the short answer is emphatically YES!
Our experience in this unprecedented time is that our course participants do find that practicing online with a committed group is nourishing, supportive, and fulfilling.
Learning to bring mindfulness into our homes is an unexpected gift of this chaotic time. We find that the space to practice is within us always, wherever our physical seat may be.
