Come join us in the beautiful San Bernardino Mountains of Big Bear, CA and explore whatever internal or external life changes you might be considering, restoring balance to your life. We’ll be together in community for meditations, teachings and interactive exercises, healthy meals and plenty of downtime to enjoy the beauty of nature. More information below…
How well we navigate changes and transitions in our lives has a direct impact on the degree of well-being, purpose, and satisfaction we experience on a day-to-day basis. If you’re considering a big change, are in the midst of one now, or are still feeling the effects of past changes, this unique retreat offers you the personal understanding and tools to open to the next phase of your life with clarity, confidence, and deeper Insight.
Together in a supportive environment, we’ll be learning principles about the nature of change, adult stages of development, as well as time-tested mindfulness practices that can help you move through times of change with more balance and clear intention. Throughout the retreat, you will be offered a series of highly effective self-assessments and tools from the Life Balance Institute that are designed to give you clarity about your specific situation and support you in moving towards your next steps. These tools have helped countless individuals step into greater alignment with what they truly care about in life- to connect with what is truly meaningful. In addition, each day we’ll practice meditations together specifically designed to support you in meeting change more effectively and in coming home to yourself in daily life.
You will have the opportunity to:
- Discover a “Path to Well-being” that is beyond getting what you want and getting rid of what you don’t want in life.
- Use the “Journey through Change” as a map to locate yourself in the process of your current change
- Identify your values and intentions so you have a basis for making wise decisions.
- Recognize habits of mind that undermine you and learn practices to disengage from their influence.
- Explore which areas of your life need attention, gain insights about your strengths and challenges in dealing with change, and begin to strategize about next steps.
This work has had a deep impact on many Dharma and meditation students and has offered them the tools to really bring their practice into the very structure of their life, restoring meaning and a sense of empowerment to live aligned with what truly matters in life.
We hope you’ll join us!
