Dewdrop on the Grass: A Zen Retreat at Grailville
- Religion & Spirituality
- Grailville Retreat and Program Center, Loveland OH
Where do you go to find a moment’s peace, patience and forgiveness? To calm your mind, reclaim your focus, and restore faith in yourself, your relationships, your work and your life? The Plunge offers you the place and time to find everything you might have thought you’d lost.
During the Plunge, you'll access the source of your own deep insight and compassion. While the ground we cover is helpful to parents, you needn't be a parent to benefit. All are welcome: mothers, fathers, grandparents, men, women, couples, singles and friends. The day lasts from 9:00 a.m. to 4 p.m. and includes morning coffee and lunch, personal encouragement, spiritual refreshment, easy laughter, and good company. During the day, we travel from stillness to motion, examining the portals of love – attention, breath, faith, patience, forgiveness and peace – through beginning mindfulness practices such as seated and walking meditation and gentle yoga. It’s a perfect day to share with friends or family.
Together, we realize the loving power of our own attention and the calming company of our own presence. Please join me.
I have never done meditation or yoga. Is this workshop OK for me?
All practices will be simple and appropriate for beginners.
Who qualifies for the couples discount?

Can you accommodate dietary restrictions?

Are tickets refundable?
Tickets are fully refundable until two weeks prior to the event.
