"For me, travel has become a mindfulness practice like no other — a sensory immersion of the sights, smells, sounds and tastes of a world far beyond the confines of my own mini microcosm. Away from the frenetic pace of daily life, we can access parts of ourselves that have been repressed or denied for weeks, months or even years." - Lena

SErenbe Retreat

1pm - 4pm

$150 (Includes snacks + beverages)

Join me for this 3-hour meditation immersion that will journey you back home to the light of presence. Mindful presence is the true refuge of our existence and meditation is the portal through which we excavate our desired peace waiting within. Neuroscience now supports what ancient yogis have known for centuries ~ that psychological and spiritual healing happen from the bottom-up, through healthy amounts of stillness and silence. I extend a loving invite for you to join me at the beautiful Inn at Serenbe for this 3-hour meditation immersion where you'll learn how to ground your energy, cultivate a mindfulness meditation practice and take this presence off the cushion into your daily life. 


Featuring Special Guest Teacher: 
Heather Ayers Ruth, Thai Yoga Therapist

During this intensive, you'll learn:

  • The tenets of Buddhist Psychology and the philosophical foundations of mindfulness
  • How to cultivate a mindfulness meditation practice 
  • The utilization of stillness and silence in daily life
  • Grounding practices to manage your mood and energy
  • Yin Yoga practices as portals into the depth of meditation

BalI Mindfulness Retreat

SILENCE. The Art of Transformation- Sold out!

March 14th - 25th, 2018

Join me in Bali for the spiritual journey of a lifetime. I’ll be guiding a group to this sacred land for a mindfulness journey alongside Pravassa. Together, we’ll cultivate inner stillness and silence through Buddhist mindfulness meditation and yin yoga. This wellness vacation will help you realign mind, body and heart so you can begin living with boundless meaning, abundance and health.

Also called "Island of the Gods," Bali is an Eden of spiritual energy that provides fertile ground for your awakening. Stepping off the plane you’ll breathe in sweet air scented with frangipani, clove, and coffee, transported into the present moment through your senses. This mindfulness vacation is centered around NYEPI, the Balinese new year, and the only place in the world that observes a day of silent reflection.
