Nourishing Inner Wisdom, Joy, and Beloved Community in a Polarized World
at Wellspring Conference Center in Germantown, MD
Presented by Opening Heart Mindfulness Community of Washington, D.C.
April 5-7, 2019
In a safe and joyful environment, this weekend retreat offers mindfulness practices in the Plum Village tradition, including rest, reflection, and renewal. Participants will explore ways to cultivate inner wisdom and joy for greater healing and transformation, individually and collectively. During these times of intense divisiveness, there is also intense change. How do we hold this with understanding and love?
The retreat includes mindfulness practices: mindful breathing, mindful sitting, mindful walking, mindful eating (with some of the meal eaten in silence) mindful speaking and listening, ceremonies and rituals of healing, mindful movement, deep relaxation, quietude, small and large group reflection and dialogue.
Nestled in two-acres of natural woods just north of Washington, D.C. and close to Baltimore, Maryland, Wellspring Conference Center offers a rustic, simple, and sustainable natural environment, with delicious home-cooked meals.
