Event description

Description

DESCRIPTION

A day away in mindful silence is a beautiful gift to yourself! Please come to our Half Day of Mindfulness, three hours of guided meditation and gentle mindful body movement.

Dates in 2019: Saturdays (Jan 19, Feb 16, April 13, and May 25).

Time: 9:30-12:30

Location: St. Andrew's Heights Community Association, 2504 13 Ave NW

Description

Please arrive around 9:15 so we can start promptly at 9:30am. We will be spending 3-hours together in silence – however the facilitators will be guiding the retreat, so we won’t be silent! There is a cloakroom to your right as you enter so you can leave your overcoat and shoes there. Washrooms are nearby. Someone will direct you to the meditation space we are using, which will be ready for you when you arrive, so please allow yourself in, find a spot, roll out your mat, turn off your cell phone, and relax.

Bring a cushion or bench for meditation if you have one. We will be doing gentle mindful yoga, so wear loose comfortable clothing, whatever else you need to be cozy (an extra mat, extra pillows, blanket) and bring a water bottle. If you have your own yoga mat and props like a strap, bolster, etc. please feel free to bring them with you.

Please refrain from bringing reading materials (and electronics) so as to keep your mindful awareness on your interior experience of arising sensations and ‘events’. You may wish to bring slippers or an extra pair of socks and a blanket as the floor may be cool – although it’s hard to predict! Layered clothing is always a good idea. Please remember to arrive as ‘scent-free’ as possible.

Suggested donation is $10 per person, or pay-what-you-can for those with low or no income. An anonymous option to donate at the door will be made available. Your generosity helps us cover the rental costs, plus a little something for our teachers. Due to limited space, please register to reserve your spot.
