Sunday, September 24th, 2017: 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

 

Location: Beaver Valley in Grey Highlands - Northeast of Flesherton

This retreat offers innovative tools to thrive through change.  Together we will explore mindful drumming, photography and meditation to see life from different perspectives and to cultivate presence, resiliency and self-compassion. With presence and self-compassion we can learn to develop greater trust in our ability to move through challenging transitions with greater ease, while feeling energized, calm, and centered. Drumming increases vitality, connection, well being and enhances positive relationships. Photography, practiced as mindful seeing, promotes attention regulation, perception of new perspectives and flexible responsiveness to ourselves and to others. This retreat takes place in the magical Beaver Valley, where the beauty of nature can support our cultivation of presence, connection, and wellbeing.

IDEAL FOR PEOPLE AT A BEGINNER OR EXPERIENCED LEVEL OF PRACTICE WITH MEDITATION, DRUMMING OR PHOTOGRAPHY

What others have said about Shari's Mindful Drumming and Photography Workshop:

"The workshop was a pretty unique and exciting experience for me."

"Incredible"   "(The) experience of various sounds helping me be more in touch with myself, and to “stay with myself” moment by moment."  

 "I’m still thinking about the workshop every day.  I’m making a bigger effort to be mindful. "

" (An) experience of fun and playfulness and enjoyment throughout the whole workshop, while also experiencing community with others and a deepening and healing within myself."

" (The) photography process helped me notice much more of the “right now”; to see what I would otherwise have completely “not seen”; to experience “being very present” and feeling “oneness” with what I was observing
