"Relational Mindfulness: Cultivating Freedom and Authenticity in How We Relate"

$20 suggested donation (drop in, no pre-registration)

Relational Mindfulness helps us to bring presence,
compassion, investigation, and clear-seeing, to how
we relate — whether we are at work, with family, in
conflict, on a date, or engaging with world issues. We
can erase the myth of separation. And we can
remember the intrinsic interconnection that is who
we really are. This transformative practice is a means
for remembering that the quality of every
relationship we will ever have stems from the quality
of our relationship with ourselves.
Based on Eden’s newest book, this restorative and
experiential retreat offers illuminating and heart-
opening practices that can be integrated into every
moment of life.

Friday will be an introduction and Saturday a more
in-depth exploration. The Saturday program will
involve meditation, relational practices, writing, and
facilitated group discussion. With Eden and others,
return to a simple understanding—that the subtlest
form of love is attention—something we can only
remember when we are present.

Please wear comfortable clothing for meditation and
bring a journal.

Deborah Eden Tull, founder of Mindful Living Revolution, is
