Mindfulness practice helps us welcome each moment of our experience with kindness, balance, and discernment. In this way, we learn to make friends with our own minds, open our hearts to the fullness of life, and show up more lovingly and wisely in relationships. On retreat, these new ways of being with our experience are facilitated by periods of silent sitting meditation, walking meditation, mindful eating, and soulful communal prayer.
