Awake in the New Year

Meditation and Conscious Intentions for 2018

1440 Multiversity 800 Bethany Drive Scotts Valley,CA 95066

Take a sacred pause as you prepare to transition to a new year and set the stage for transformation and new possibilities in 2018. Join meditation teacher Deborah Eden Tull in this retreat to deepen your practice of meditation and mindfulness and participate in the powerful process of setting conscious intentions.

This approach to setting New Year’s resolutions is not about creating a program of self-improvement—it’s about setting off on a course of self-acceptance and conscious choice. It’s a celebration of who you really are.

You will learn a number of conscious compassionate awareness techniques, including:

  • Sitting and walking meditation
  • How to engage in mindful inquiry, including mindful eating
  • Writing exercises to help you clarifying your goals
  • How to meditate in nature.

You will harvest the lessons of 2017, release limiting beliefs and obstacles, and connect on a deeper level with your inner life. As you do, you will fully align with your heart’s intentions for the year ahead and enter 2018 ready for growth and change.
