Moving Meditation Retreat with Elizabeth Lewis:
Move Your Body, Still Your Mind
September 30-October 1, 2017 | Cost: $100
Moving meditation is any type of meditation in which we are in motion or active.
In this workshop you will discover how deep intention and attention can turn any form of conscious movement into a sacred body prayer to help us better understand the nature and sanctity of this world.
With St. Anthony’s tranquil wooded forest, hiking trails and labyrinth as inspiration, you will experience various forms of walking meditation, as well as standing and nature meditations. Other meditative practices will also be explored.
There will be plenty of time for private contemplation and discussion on how any movement-based daily task (dish meditation!) can be a way to still the mind and renew the soul.
This retreat will begin with check-in and continental breakfast at 9 a.m. on Saturday and will conclude with the noon meal on Sunday. Overnight accommodations are available Friday night for those with a long distance to travel for an additional $45.
Presented by Elizabeth Lewis, certified stress management, meditation and mindfulness-based stress reduction teacher.
