Meditation & Contemplative Practice Retreat
For traumatically bereaved individuals or couples who have previously
attended a Selah Carefarm program and for MISS Foundation volunteers.
Meditation provides the foundation for contemplative practices. We will provide plainspoken and practical instruction about the body, breath, and mind for meditation and guide you a way to settle down with yourself exactly the way you are now. We will engage in movement and embodiment exercises that help to calm down and be more present. We will use a council practice to check in with ourselves and others and have a daily period of contemplative work practice. Parts of the retreat will be held in active silence.
