RETREAT PRACTICE offers increased stillness and silence within which greater insights, clarity, loving presence and compassion are discovered and grown. Practicing together for a whole day shifts our intention from one of daily tasks to the active and kind attention needed to turn awareness inward. As we move closer to ourselves, a day of mindfulness offers us the awakened heart/mind through which happiness and freedom are born.
A Day of Mindfulness is practice time purposefully removed from our daily routine and responsibilities, allowing for a rich and beneficial opportunity for continuous mindfdulness practice.
All are welcome to attend. You may choose to attend a half-day in AM or PM.
$35.00 suggested donation for the full-day retreat and $20 for the half-day for those not in a current mindfulness course

Our retreats are typically held at Questhaven Retreat Center which is nestled among chaparral-covered hills in northern San Diego County. The grounds encompass one square mile of coastal wilderness traversed by several miles of nature trails offering hilltop vistas, shaded oak sanctuaries, wayside shrines, seasonal streams, and a variety of wildflowers, birds and wildlife. Wandering these trails, we find release from the stress of outer lives, and come to the stillness and quiet necessary to awaken our inner lives.
