The Mindful Awareness Retreat: The Pathway to Happiness: Join Diana Winston, Director of Mindfulness Education and Grove Burnett, guiding teacher of Vallecitos, for a 5-day silent mindfulness retreat. During this retreat we will practice sitting and walking meditation throughout the day, with daily lectures and group meetings exploring the science behind mindfulness, how to deepen our mindfulness practice, how to work with challenging emotions, and how to develop more self-compassion and kindness.
The extraordinary Vallecitos wilderness, with its towering stands of old growth forest, lush meadows, alpine lakes and exquisite Vallecitos River, greatly enhances and deepens our meditation practice. The daily schedule will include mindful walks into the majestic woods and landscape surrounding the ranch.
This is an excellent next steps for those who have completed MAPs classes and want to deepen their practice. Date: July 5-10 Venue: Mount Vallecitos Ranch Cost: Sliding Scale $560-$750
