We will have an opportunity to deepen the practices that we explored in the initial weekend retreat. Our time together will include community building and the practices of sitting and walking meditation, the body scan, mindful movement, and mindful communication. If weather permits, we will also spend some time outdoors on the beautiful property of the Tatamagouche Centre.
Program Cost: $360 (tuition, meals & accommodation)
