InStill Mindfulness SWVA presents Self-Care through Mindfulness: A Daylong Retreat on Saturday, August 11, 2018 at Unitarian Universalist Congregation in Blacksburg, VA.

Mindfulness is a scientifically proven method of managing stress while also maximizing one’s efficacy.

InStill is holding a Self-Care through Mindfulness Daylong Retreat, an experiential retreat addressing themes including:
• Finding relief from burnout and fatigue;
• Recovering a sense of purpose, vitality and wellbeing;
• Learning new self-care and focusing tools;
• Learning to relax and manage stress;
• Settling a busy mind;
• Learning how to skillfully handle emotions and thoughts;
• Directing and sustaining attention;
• Cultivating compassion; and
• Developing listening and communication skills.

By integrating mindful awareness practices, fun workshop activities, and social-emotional intelligence exercises, retreat leaders Alan Forrest, Pat Shoemaker, and Lori Marsh will give participants tools to help develop balance and inner peace amidst daily stressors that impact us all.

“This has been the most peaceful day I have experienced in years!”
