About this event

Meditation and mindfulness are everywhere these days, but the transition from meditating at home with an app to going on a meditation retreat can be intimidating. In this workshop, Rachel and Roxanne will review meditation postures including walking meditation, teach practices for mindful eating, review general retreat etiquette, and introduce the practice of dana. We will alternate between instructions, formal practice, and mindful movement.

You'll get an email with the Zoom link when you register, as well as a reminder before the event starts.

This workshop is aimed at people who have tried meditation but are still new to practice.

The registration fee for this event includes teacher compensation and admin costs. We're happy to waive it on request--email rachel@bcims.org to make that happen.
