Day of Mindfulness: Setting Conscious Intentions for Our Lives in 2020 Through Mindfulness & Inquiry
With Deborah Eden Tull
Energy is our most precious resource, for it is the means by which we transform our creative potential into meaningful action." Tarthang Tulku
The new year is upon us. Join us for a transformative process for aligning your energy with your deepest intentions for 2020 through mindfulness and inquiry. This is a radically fresh approach to New Year's "resolutions" that will help you to identify and release limiting beliefs and bring deeper clarity and possibility to your life in the year ahead. This workshop is not about self-improvement. Instead, it is about self-acceptance, compassionate action, choice, and a celebration of who we really are. Awake in the New Year involves meditation, writing, awareness exercises, guided imagery, and facilitated group discussion. If you want to transition into 2020 with greater presence, peace, and empowerment, this workshop is not to be missed!
WHAT TO BRING: comfortable layered clothing, your lunch, water, and/or any beverages with you (e.g. coffee, tea)
