Happy – Not Stressed – Holidays 2020
November 20, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - November 21, 2020 @ 4:00 pm UTC+0TBA
the holiday season can be a whirlwind of shopping, gift-giving, family gatherings, and parties and activities, beginning right after Halloween and lasting through the end of the year. While this season is meant to – and can bring a feelings of spiritual renewal, love and cheer, it can also herald a season of stress, sadness, and a sense of being unable to cope. Indeed, the American Institute of Stress indicates that 80% of us feel overwhelmed, depleted and “blue” during the holiday season.
Through the exploration of tools for spiritual and physical renewal that are both easy to learn and easy to use, this retreat will prepare you to let go of stress so that you can more fully experience the love, joy and renewal of the holidays. We’ll focus on intentionally relaxing, slowing down and quieting the body and mind! And we’ll learn techniques for navigating holiday activities and family gatherings with spiritual light, grace and inner ease. Retreat activities will include a guided mindful eating meditation of an entire meal (including desert!) to help you learn to skillfully avoid holiday stress-eating, as well as the opportunity to make blessing beads to remind you of the light you want to embody and shine forth during the holiday season and throughout the year!
