Mindful Kindful YOUniversity Retreats

Join our Mindful Exploration mini-Retreats (“ME-Treats”) in beautiful locations around the inspiring Central Coast region of CA. It’s a perfect opportunity to cultivate and sharpen your mindfulness skills in the company of others while diving deeply into yourself. Experience the blending of silence with contemplative conversation (share questions, insights, and wisdom); be open, drop expectations, be willing, invite curiosity, and prepare to slow yourself wayyy down, leaving your troubles behind, to nourish and replenish yourself while supported by beautiful like-minded folks from all walks of life.  We even add a little fun to the mix, bringing mindfulness awareness of the present moment, experiencing life as it is, no matter what is happening! It’s irresistibly YOUnique!

YOU are INvited!!!!

Our next retreat is TBA ~ late April or early May. 

Don’t miss our announcements of what’s coming!

What some participants shared afterwards:

Some “I enjoyed learning some new tools to encourage mindfulness through movement- small simple movements that should be easy to remember at home. Quiet meditation with option to spread out really made it easier for everyone to find their comfortable spot. The guided meditation was lovely and left me feeling more aware of how sending love to others can also help myself.”

“I found it beneficial to set apart a block of time to learn and practice mindfulness. The retreat was relaxing & enjoyable. I liked that different activities were incorporated ad we learned how to bring mindfulness into our daily lives.”

“This was a well-planned, well researched presentation. I have heard most of these things before, but not as well organized and at the same time as this was.”

“Thanks for taking us through the movement exercises. That is a new addition for me to a mindfulness practice. I also really enjoyed the guided loving kindness meditation. Your home is so welcoming and comfortable- a really great spot for a retreat like this. You created a very accepting and nurturing morning for us. Thank you!!!”

Mindful Moments Tribute ~ My Training Retreat:

This video, “Mindful Moments”,  is dedicated to my amazing Mindful Schools “family” following a retreat at the Earthrise Retreat Center in Petaluma, CA. It holds sacred memories of our two retreats that began and ended our year-long certification journey. This video project is something I wanted to offer from my heart to all the beautiful people who are planting seeds around the globe to contribute to a more mindful, kindful, compassionate world. What a privilege to journey together. Although most of the pics are my photos, other beautiful photos were contributed by other friends at the retreat who also have a mindful eye and heart. Photography has really helped me to see things in a unique way and stay mindful in the moment. It truly brings me joy. There are a few editing glitches but I decided to “let it go”.
