Mindfulness as Survival Equipment: A Day of Mindfulness for Activists and Changemakers


October 22, 9 AM-5 PM

The Whidbey Institute 6449 Old Pietila Rd, Clinton, WA 98236

We are living through a time of wrenching changes, culturally, politically and ecologically. At times like this we need to re-establish our connection to what is most essential and enduring about our lives.

We need to reconnect with our own inner depth, vitality and resilience. Our capacity to be agents of healing, for ourselves and others, depends on our ability to navigate these challenges with skill and with heart. Mindfulness gives us the practical tools for doing this. Held amidst the beauty and solitude of the Whidbey Institute, this day of mindfulness retreat is an opportunity to unplug from the stresses of daily life and work, and to enter into a deep period of solitude and “inner habitat restoration.” The day will be a blending of guided mindfulness practices with exercises and dialogue geared for people involved in any kind of activist or social change work. You can register online here. Cost is $105. If you have questions about the event or about scholarship possibilities, email info@cascadiamindfulness.com.
