Within you is a stillness and
a sanctuary that you can retreat to any time and be yourself.
Meditation can involve focusing, relaxing, reflecting. One thing at a time. Mindfulness is the non-judgmental focus on our present emotions, thoughts and sensations. It’s the power to engage with the present to prevent worrying about the future or stressing over the past. Meditation is focusing on one thing.
Whether you are by yourself, a couple, or with friends, some incredible retreat are not too far. These meditation retreats designed to help you recenter, decompress, focus, and connect with yourself and the natural world.
