April 01 - April 03, 2022

Paula Evans

Mindful self compassion allows us to build a greater sense of our own self worth and awareness, creating greater connection with our bodies and emotions and a stronger presence with all that surrounds us, right here, right now.Strengthen your ability to be present with yourself, just as you are, with loving kindness. Just imagine a life free of self judgement! We will plant the seeds....Through discussion, Dharma, gentle body movement, sitting and walking meditation, you will gain practical knowledge to help bring self compassion and care into your daily life, as well as trust in your own inner wisdom--all in the nurturing environment of Menla and under the care of a skilled mindfulness therapist.Mindful self compassion will be woven into the entire weekend.Be with yourself with greater love and ease - body, mind and spirit, and a new trust in the wisdom you hold deep within.
