what will we do?
We will do deep relaxation, awareness of breath meditation, mindful movement and other practices in joy and share our experiences. When we do these practices regularly, we could meet life’s challenges and stress in a calmer way and renew ourselves whenever we feel the need to do so.
You could complete this retreat as Fortbildung (Professional Development Training) and receive a
