Women’s Mindfulness Retreat:
Mindfulness – Body, Mind & Spirit
Relax and rejuvenate in the beautiful natural surroundings of the Warm Beach Conference Center for a weekend of self care and personal exploration. Join me for the Edmonds United Methodist Church’s annual women’s retreat. I have been invited as Keynote speaker all day Saturday to present a day of mindfulness. Together we will explore mindfulness of the body, mindfulness and mental health and the spirituality of mindfulness. There will be additional breakout sessions and options for yoga and massage.
This retreat is open to all women. You do not need to be a member of the church to attend but please be know that, being that it is hosted by a church organization, prayer opportunities and a Christian perspective on the material will be presented. This denomination is very open and affirming (solidly anchored in the ethics of equality and inclusiveness for women, racial/cultural diversity and the LGBTQ community).

Deeper Cravings Inspiration & Support Circles
The Deeper Cravings Inspiration & Support Circle is an in person gathering of people interested in deepening their experience of peace and joy through learning how to engage a ‘practice of presence’ and align their lives with their Authentic Self. This group is open to anyone but especially suits people who are spiritually curious, self-aware and open hearted. Topics vary from meeting to meeting. The evening is broken up into 2 segments:
Inspiration: Peggy Farah, Psychotherapist, Meditation teacher and Food/Body Issue expert presents on various topics related to health, psychology & spirituality. In this portion of the evening she will be teaching from latest information & research and sharing helpful practices to integrate into daily life. Peggy’s talk will often include an experiential component such as a meditation, journal assignment or art based activity to deepen your understanding of how the subject manifests in your own life circumstance.
Support: This will be a facilitated sharing of experiences and an opportunity for the group to explore successes, struggles and questions related to the topic. This will also be a time for specific Q&A with Peggy related to the topic. The sharing portion of the evening is presented as an optional invitation for those willing. For those that are less comfortable speaking, much can be gained from sitting and listening to the experiences and wisdom of others in the circle.
