Bringing Mindful Speech to Life Retreat 2020

Ninthth annual weekend of mindfulness with Dharma Teacher Peggy Smith and Theodate Lawlor, Members of Thich Nhat Hanh’s Tiep Hien Order

A weekend of exploration in both the inner space of Mindful Meditation and the outer space of Mindful Relationship embodied in Nonviolent Communication (NVC). This time together will include experiences of mindful sitting, mindful walking, mindful eating and the deep realm of healing in noble silence. With this centeredness we will build capacity for heart-centered communication using the NVC process.

This weekend will offer nourishment for beginners and experienced practitioners alike. Space is limited and some scholarship assistance is available. Registration closes January 9, 2020
