The Mindful Path Retreat
Are you wanting to go deeper in your meditation practice?
Do you have trouble quieting your mind?
Led by Scott L. Treatman, DO, MPH and Joy Melton MA, EdS, CHC
This 4-hour retreat is an opportunity for meditators and spiritual seekers to experience a variety of formal practices of mindfulness meditation. Except for a closing conversation, the retreat is held in noble silence with leaders Scott & Joy guiding the meditations. If you already have a practice this is an opportunity to have a deeper immersion. Beginners or sporadic meditators are welcome to join us as a springboard to a more regular practice. Please register, wear comfortable layers, bring a mat or blanket and silence cellphones. Emphasis is on cultivating focus, concentration, insight and compassion which will benefit participants and their families. The personal benefits of this retreat include:
