Mindfulness can be demystified, practised and realized. When we understand that mindfulness means "to remember," returning our attention to the present moment, we see this is possible for us. It is a training.

This present moment awareness and cultivation is not just for the purpose of developing calmness and concentration. It's for the purpose of awakening. When this kind attention and presence is cultivated, we gain access to liberating insights. Peace is possible for us.

This retreat will include optional yoga sessions twice a day.
