Most of the stress that we experience today is generated by our own thoughts and beliefs. In addition to the suffering it generates, chronic stress prevents us from accessing our inner wisdom and compassion.
Ancient teachings propose that most of the uneasiness and stress we suffer can be released gently and wisely through practice.
In this retreat, we will examine the main layers of thoughts and beliefs that generate stress, and facilitate their release with a combination of right understanding, meditation and restorative yoga practices.
Anita Sielecki will lead Mindful Movement practices to facilitate somatic integration.
Contact Anita at (780) 432-7152 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions or would like further information.

If attending via Zoom, you will need a space to place your yoga mat and your camera set up on the long side of your mat, back far enough that you can be seen both standing and sitting, with sufficient light in front of you and no light or windows behind you if possible. If these parameters aren’t possible, just do your best. Have props/water handy as well and try to arrange to not be interrupted.
