Mindfulness Health & Healing Retreat

With Shastri Mary Campbell

September 21 - 23, 2018

Mindfulness is an unconditional way of being, a way to connect with intrinsic health and strengthen the human capacities for awareness, wisdom, compassion and skilful action. The practice of mindfulness has been recognized as an effective approach to health promotion and stress management. Mindfulness-based interventions have been found to be effective in reducing physical and psychological distress and improving quality of life for individuals with a wide range of health related issues, as well as, reducing the risk for burnout in care providers.

This weekend retreat will include instruction in mindfulness and contemplation practices. There will be opportunities for dialogue and discussion. We will explore the meaning of health and healing and the various ways that mindfulness has been applied. No prior experience with mindfulness is necessary.

The Retreat will be led by Shastri Mary Campbell, a senior teacher within the Shambhala-Buddhist tradition and a mental health Clinical Nurse Specialist. Mary has extensive experience teaching mindfulness within in a health care context, to people experiencing illness, family members and health care providers.
