Description

The Embodied Narrative “Moving out of the past into the present”
Daylong Workshop: Saturday Sept. 14th 10:00am – 5:00pm

"As long as you make an identity for yourself out of pain, you cannot be free of it.” ~ Eckhart Tolle.

We each can carry a variety of narratives/emotional stories, some of which often run our lives with an adverse negative effect. In this daylong retreat we will unfold and begin to dis-assemble the parts of our story that are not useful (and not us) and yet we cling to them because we feel may lost without them.

LOCATION: 2041 Larkin Street at Vallejo on Russian Hill in San Francisco, faciliated through the Mindfulness Care Center. The Mindfulness Care Center was recognized by San Francisco Magazine and Voted The Best Of 2018 in "Mindfulness and Meditation."

In this workshop Perry & Rik will offer various exercises and teachings that enables attendees to feel and see more clearly the benefit of releasing old painful worn-out narratives we say about ourselves and move forward into new possibilities of calm and joy.

"We can't create a new past though we can create a new future, and it begins by being in the present" ~Rik Center.

The daylong workshop is offered on a dana/donation basis. No one turned away due to lack of funds. Suggested donation $30-$60. Mindfulness Care Center programs are for everyone to gain new insights into life, themselves and inner healing.

Please bring a lunch or there are lot's of nice restaurants in the Upper Polk area.
