Event description

Description

In this Weekend retreat for people in recovery, which includes AA, NA, Al-Anon, ACA, and their friends, we will investigate mindfulness meditation and contemplative prayer. Coming from many perspectives, we will talk about surrender, love, and compassion. Together we will strengthen our meditation and prayer foundations and find refuge in our spiritual practice so we can live a healthy, connected, and inspired life.

Meditation allows anyone who practices it, to tap into an experience of openness and expansiveness. That broader frame of reference and heightened consciousness enables us to engage more deliberately, be more present, be driven less by negative self-talk and unexamined emotion, respond less reactively and take greater control of our actions, emotions, connections, and environment. The retreat will include silent meditation sits, guided meditations, walking meditations, individual coaching, dharma talks, Q&A, and groups discussions.

Anahita Holden will be guiding us in mindful movement (gentle yoga) on Saturday.

In order to nurture a sense of stillness and deep listening, silence will be maintained throughout the retreat.

Held at the beautiful Mount Calvary Monastery Guest House, set in the hills of Santa Barbara, the grounds offer a large terrace overlooking Mission Canyon and landscaped grounds including a labyrinth. The accommodation is mostly in double rooms with shared baths for a maximum of 24 guests.
