Being Present to Life -- A One-day Retreat (in person)

Most of us would like to be more present in life.  We experience more joy and connection when we are right here.  We have access to more wisdom when we aren't caught up in a squirrel-cage mind.  But it seems to be difficult to stay present -- it can be exhausting to even try!

Being more present can start with exploring in a deeper way -- why aren't we present?  Why is it so hard?  Join us for a day looking at obstacles to being open, at ease, right here -- and what we can do to shift those obstacles. Program consists of meditation instruction, meditation, talks and discussion.

Date:  October 28, 2023 -- 9:30am to 4:30pm  Lunch, tea and coffee, beverages and snacks will be provided as part of the day.  We will organize a pay-your-own-way dinner afterwards for those who wish to attend.

Location:  Oakville/Mississauga near 401 highway -- exact location to be determined

Cost:  Ranges from $50 to $120 depending on your ability to pay -- you choose -- includes venue cost, lunch and incidentals.
