Mindfulness and Trauma

December 2, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm PST

A Daylong Retreat with Pawan Bareja.

In this daylong, you will start to work with the traumatic responses in your body, which can inhibit your daily life through stress and anxiety. You will be empowered to hold your trauma responses using somatic (body-based) skills and mindfulness meditation tools. Specifically, the mindfulness practices of loving kindness, compassion, sympathetic joy and equanimity will be used to help you free up your energy so you feel more settled, grounded and calm in your everyday life. 

Open to all.

$100 Plus Monthly Supporters attend for no cost. TO RSVP AS A MONTHLY SUPPORTER, CLICK HERE.
