Twelve-Step Recovery and Mindfulness Meditation Retreat

These four hours without distractions provide a unique opportunity for self-discovery and seeing, through mindfulness meditation, how we contribute to our own suffering. We will have periods of sitting meditation, gentle stretching, group discussions, a short talk, and a mid-day break for tea and walking outdoors. The environment will be informal and the instructions simple. This will be a unique experience for many of us that will provide a more in-depth 11th step practice. If you have a yoga mat, please bring it for the gentle stretching exercises. No previous meditation retreat experience necessary. Led by Anita R.
