Hands holding flower petals Find Space, Breathe & Reconnect: a 1/2 day Silent Retreat
December 3, 2023

Taking time for retreat offers us the opportunity to step out of our daily routines to reconnect with and care for our innermost selves. Together we will meet and settle into our circle and ourselves.  We will guide you with meditations and practices that can help you to reconnect with your breath, your body and your innate self-compassion.
