Leap to Success

EMC has joined with Leap to Success, a women's empowerment and leadership training program to offer courageous and inspiring women who are working diligently to rebuild their lives, the opportunity to experience mindfulness practices in a one-day mindfulness retreat held each year since AUGUST, 2017 at Questhaven Retreat Center.  EMC and Diana Shimkus will offer this program to Leap's participants and staff again in the summer of 2019.  We look forward to this collaboration.  EMC board, sangha members and volunteers benefit from mindful/heartful practice together with the ladies of Leap to Success.  Click here to learn more about Leap to Success.
