The Art of Slowing Down 

We’re so marinated in the culture of speed that we almost fail to notice the toll it takes on every aspect of our lives - on our health, our diet, our work, our relationships, the environment and our community.

Do you feel tired and depleted by life?

Do you want to be more in the driver seat in your own life?

Do you crave having the time and space to reconnect with yourself?

Do you want to feel more present in your life?

Do you want to feel like you have some control over the pace of your life?

Did you answer 'yes' to any of these questions? If so, this retreat could be for you...

About the retreat.

There is no doubt that we live in a busy and distracted world. Life moves quickly and it can feel challenging, if not impossible, to find the time and space needed to pause and rejuvenate ourselves. The Art of Slowing Down retreat is devoted to exploring and developing the skills needed to slow down and reconnect to what matters most. Participants will experience a blend of sessions that explore meditation, mindfulness, creativity and visualization with periods of silence and time immersed in nature.   There will also be a balance of organized sessions with free time to relax and rejuvenate in ways that meet your own personal needs. Like any art, slowing down takes practice and intention. On this weekend, you will learn tangible and sustainable ways to incorporate mindfulness and other 'slow strategies' into your day-to-day life.

Use this retreat as a kick start to accessing greater intentionality, joy, and fulfillment in life!
