In our series on ritual and practices, we focus on making our activities in everyday life more meaningful when intention, attention, and manifestation are used. Mindfulness means paying attention to, and being in the present moment. In this workshop of Mindfulness in Everyday Life, we will experience and learn enjoyable and relaxing practices on a peaceful Saturday afternoon. We will learn how to take them home with us and allow them benefit us in everyday life.

Whether you are new to mindfulness or want to expand your practice, all will benefit from this workshop on mindfulness meditation and mindfulness in everyday life. Together we will learn and practice sitting meditation, walking meditation, and mindful eating amongst the beautiful natural setting at Surprise Farm Retreat Center.


The setting provides us with the opportunity to spend time in Mother Nature’s embrace to reflect and enrich our process. We practice letting nature heal us. 

This workshop includes the opportunity for fire-pit storytelling, spending the night in one of our accommodation options and a morning meditation.
