Adult - Calm in the Storm: A Mini-Retreat

"Be the Calm One on the Boat" (a poem by Thich Nhat Hanh)
"When the crowded refugee boats met with storms or pirates, if every one panicked, all would be lost.
But if even one person stayed calm, it was enough. It showed the way for everyone to survive."

Join us to restore, reflect, and invite calm into your life as we navigate through this challenging time. You will experience guided and walking meditation, mindful movement, breath practices and self reflection that will leave you feeling more grounded, present and relaxed. The retreat is being held in a beautiful, serene outdoor setting that will nourish your entire being.

Thanks to the Mershad Family Foundation for their partnership and support in providing this morning retreat!

A few things to note:
- Attendees should bring their own yoga mats and a blanket/towel
- Retreat will be outdoors at the Mershad's beautiful retreat location on Avis Rd.
