Mindful MenLiving Retreat – The Path to Conscious Living

June 7 @ 4:30 pm - June 9 @ 2:00 pm CDT

Too often, we go through life on autopilot, automatically reacting to people and events around us instead of responding mindfully, consciously to life as it is. Learning to live consciously is both the first of MenLiving Five Suggestions and the great benefit of the ancient practice of Mindfulness.  Please join us for the next Mindful MenLiving retreat in which we will focus on the deep, quiet introspection of meditation and Mindfulness as we walk the path to living more consciously as men.

Please join us as we continue to evolve  “Mindful MenLiving.” A hybrid between Mindful Man of the past and MenLiving, a unique men’s organization whose vision is a world of healthy, intentional, connected men. During this weekend retreat, we will explore how Mindfulness helps us shine the light of awareness both on the forces that have shaped us as men and how those forces live on within us to this day. Only when we do that can we begin to let go of the hurtful parts of the past that can bind us to those beliefs.

As always, we will explore our topic by practicing mindful meditation and movement in a caring, safe, and supportive environment conducted largely in noble silence. In addition, Tony Schmidt will bring his experience as a facilitator and organizer in MenLiving to incorporate processes that support connection, healing, and growth as men in our modern society. We will conclude each evening with a men’s circle to share experiences. Throughout the weekend, we will include other facilitated processes that encourage authentic self-reflection and connection in alignment with MenLiving’s 5 suggestions for living fully.

About the Retreat cost: The prices for this retreat cover only the expenses of putting on this retreat and do NOT provide compensation for the teachers. Following the ancient tradition of Mindfulness teachers, David and MenLiving gratefully accept dana (the Pali word for generosity) as a free-will offering from those who attend the retreat. Please consider offering Dana at the end of the retreat if you find the teachings helpful.

This retreat is appropriate both for men who are new to Mindfulness and meditation and for experienced practitioners.
