In week 6, learn to shift into effortless, embodied mindfulness so you can more deeply enjoy every moment of your life with Loch Kelly.
Awakening is learnable and available as the next natural stage of human development. Discover how to access your effortless, awake nature and know the intelligence of your body from within. In this program with Loch Kelly, founder of the nonprofit Open-Hearted Awareness Institute, you learn how to flip the “off switch” of your chattering mind and find ways to liberate difficult mental and emotional states by accessing openhearted awareness through the practice of effortless mindfulness. You also practice moving from presence through gentle yoga, dance, and spontaneous qigong. This retreat will help you shift into effortless mindfulness, embodied to more deeply enjoy the beach, nature, and friendly community.
