This retreat offers innovative tools to thrive through change.  Together we will explore mindful drumming, photography and meditation to see life from different perspectives and to cultivate presence, resiliency and self-compassion.  With presence and self-compassion we can learn to develop greater trust in our ability to move through challenging transitions with greater ease, while feeling energized, calm, and centred.  Drumming increases vitality, connection, well-being and enhances positive relationships.  Photography, practices as mindful seeing, promotes attention regulation, perception of new perspectives and flexible responsiveness to ourselves and to others.  This retreat takes place in the magical Beaver Valley, where the beauty of nature can support our cultivation of presence, connection, and well-being.
