 Marie likes to call Mindful Communication ‘Heart to Heart’.   It’s perfect because Mindful Communication is speaking and listening, in the moment, from your heart.  It’s having a discussion with someone noticing your feelings and then creating dialogue through love.

Mindfulness is about being in the moment and in touch with your inner self.  Mindful communication is being able to open up those channels of communication and be truly honest with yourself. Being honest with yourself is hard to do, often times it’s hard for us to face the truth. This class will teach you how to open communication channels, of the moment you are in, with others and with yourself.  Experience communication in a totally different way with Love.


 Mindfulness  means being present in each moment, exactly the way it is, without  judging the experience but rather investigating it with curiosity.

This Day Apart Retreat is offered at a lower registration fee than that of the on-site retreats.  Registration fee: $35

In this Mindfulness online retreat, we will dive deeper into the understanding of habitual life patterns, how they are formed and why they arise. We will notice communication breakdown due to habitual reactions of speaking and “not really listening”.
 
Bringing attention to these practices helps us slow down and become filled with gratitude for the action we are doing rather than the emotional experience.  These practices are just some of many ways to bring Mindfulness into our daily lives and it’s more important to practice embodying them rather than just “doing” them.  During this online retreat, you will learn to notice when  you are living on auto pilot and when you’re really living in the moment. You will discover the difference in living fully and uncover what is hindering “real life experiences”.
