Saturday, January 27, 2018
9am-3pm
Trustees Pavilion, Ramapo College of New Jersey

Join us for a mindfulness meditation retreat on Saturday, January 27 from 9-3pm. This retreat is for those interested in learning the basics of how to meditate, or for more experienced meditators looking for a beginner’s mind approach. Pause, quiet your mind and body and cultivate the balance we all need in these stressful times.

Learn how mindfulness meditation can help us be more present in all of the moments of our lives. Together we will explore mindfulness meditation practices that can help us relate to every moment in our lives with compassion and kindness.

Learn how meditation is different from relaxation and the power of mindfulness meditation in building awareness, focus and concentration.

We will alternate periods of meditation, mindful walking, gentle movement, mindful eating with time for Q & A.

Please bring a yoga mat if you have one and dress in layers as the rooms can sometimes get cool.  Please bring your own lunch and drink.

Cost: $40 Community, $15 Ramapo Faculty, Staff & Students
