A Weekend of Mindfulness: Cultivating Balance and Harmony within Ourselves and with Others
with Jerry Silbert and Roberta Silbert
Join us for a weekend of mindfulness — an opportunity to log onto your “inner net.” This is a time to pause for mindfulness practice with a small group in a beautiful and peaceful setting on the Long Island Sound.
A variety of mindfulness and meditation practices will be introduced in a safe and relaxed atmosphere. There will be poetry, reflections, mindful dialogue, guided kindness and compassion practices, periods of silence, and listening deeply to the wisdom in the room. No experience necessary. This retreat is open to anyone who would like to experience and practice mindfulness over a sustained period of time.
The weekend begins on Friday, April 20, 4:00 p.m. and concludes on Sunday, April 22, at 2 p.m. The fee for a single room with private bath is $350; a double room is $320 per person. When registering for a double room, please make sure to include the name of the person with whom you’ll be sharing the room.
