SILENT RETREAT

We often live in our heads. Always thinking, planning. Join me for a Silent Retreat to gather the scattered mind and find peace and calm. We will do mindfulness meditation, light stretching and movements, and poetry reading. Optional for you to read a poem or an excerpt from a book that you find meaningful.
