Relational Mindfulness: Reclaiming Our Shared Power in an Age of Disconnect
A Daylong Retreat with Deborah Eden Tull
Saturday August 12, 2017
10am-4pm; San Francisco

If we live as if the purpose of every encounter is to affirm wholeness and awakening, we give ourselves permission to let down our guard and go beyond the conditioned mind to our own true essence – to who we really are. The more we learn to interact with our world through presence and vulnerability, the more ease, freedom and intimacy we find. Relational mindfulness is a practice that allows us to express, listen, sense, see, and be seen. It requires openness, willingness, courage, and curiosity. It allows us to share truth, compassion, vulnerability, and insight. We receive the gift of connection more deeply within ourselves and with others that we can carry into every aspect of our lives. Relational mindfulness impacts how we relate with ourselves, with one another, and with our planet.

Some of the practices we will explore are:

-Deep Listening
-Inquiry and Clear Seeing
-Turning Towards, Rather Than Away
-Taking Responsibility
-Not Taking Personally
-Compassionate Action

This restorative and experiential retreat is appropriate both for experienced meditators and for those who are new to meditation and mindfulness. It offers heart-opening practices and teachings that can be integrated into every moment of daily life. This retreat is based on Eden’s newest book, Relational Mindfulness: Reclaiming Our Shared Power in an Age of Disconnect (Wisdom Publications 2018)

Open to all.
