ABUNDANT LIVING MEDITATION RETREAT AT SERENBE 

Cultivate abundance within relationships, career and moment-to-moment living.

$650 (2-Day Program, Room not included)
Contact Guest Services to reserve your room at the Inn.

Through the portal of presence, we begin to journey back home to our innate capacity for Abundant Living. When we immerse ourselves in nature, we reclaim the truth of our inner wholeness. It’s through the practice of mindfulness that we begin to wake up to this new way of living without fear. Through the ancient and sacred practice of mindfulness, we can become liberated from an inner sense of perpetual busyness, stress and imbalance. It’s our human capacity to cultivate a different relationship with our lives that becomes the wellspring of our truest interconnected abundance with the Universe.

During this meditation immersion, you’ll learn:

  • How to cultivate a Mindfulness Meditation practice to align with abundance

  • The Art of Mindful Eating

  • Walking Meditation

  • How to release energies and thought patterns that aren’t serving you

  • Healing yogic practices

  • Labyrinth philosophy and the practice of labyrinth meditation

  • The alchemical practices of Compassion & Lovingkindness

This intensive workshop will outline recent findings in neuroscience and tie them to attachment and interpersonal theories in order to support the use of these transformative mind / body / spirit approaches to therapy. The workshop will be an integration of lecture and experiential exercises, utilizing the wisdom traditions of Buddhist psychology and yogic philosophy integrated with western neuroscience to ground the practices. You’ll walk away knowing how, when and why to use these mind / body / spirit approaches in clinical settings.

 

This day of retreat-style learning will include:

  • Teachings on the neuroscience, attachment theories, interpersonal psychology and Buddhist psychology to ground the practices and create a container for healing

  • Various meditations from both the yoga and Buddhist traditions
