Inseus Half-Day Mindfulness Retreat
July 16, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm CDT
On Saturday, July 16th, join us in-person at ALTAR Community—an urban oasis in Chicago’s lively Logan Square neighborhood—for this special half-day mindfulness retreat. Whether it’s your first introduction to mindfulness or part of your ongoing practice, you’ll come away refreshed and reenergized with greater clarity, a renewed sense of purpose, and a toolkit of practices to integrate into daily life.
Throughout our half-day retreat, you’ll experience:
–Various types of mindfulness meditations designed to increase focus & awareness and to connect with compassion & empathy.
–Mindful movement practices, including walking meditation and gentle hatha yoga, to help you stretch your body and mind.
–Various breathing and body awareness exercises to help you learn how to manipulate your nervous system in order to tame anxiety and reactivity.
–An experiential session of SoulCollage®—an expressive arts practice that develops creativity and intuition, encourages self-discovery, and provides personal guidance.
–A mindful eating session, featuring healthy lunch from a local favorite.
Our retreat will begin promptly at 9 AM. You’re also invited to join us at 8:30 AM for coffee & light breakfast and to socialize with everyone before our formal practice time gets underway.
Co-hosted by Inseus founder, Ashley Nelson, and ALTAR founder, Kathy Bresler.
