Love in Action: The Heart of Relational Mindfulness a Day-Long Retreat

with Deborah Eden Tull

February 2, 2019

We all struggle at times with how to bring meditation off the cushion and into the beautiful, dynamic, and messy realm of relationship. Relational Mindfulness helps us to bring presence, compassion, investigation, and clear-seeing, to how we relate — whether we are at work, with family, on a date, in conflict, or engaging with world issues. We can erase the myth of separation. And we can remember the intrinsic interconnection that is who we really are.

Every relationship we will ever have begins with our relationship with our self. Learning how to bring greater compassion, curiosity, and inquiry to our relationship with our self is the essence of meditation and Relational Mindfulness.

The principles we will explore are:

The Sacred Pause
Deep Listening
Inquiry and Clear Seeing
Turning Towards, Rather Than Away
Taking Responsibility
Not Taking Personally
Compassionate Action

Based on Eden’s newest book, Relational Mindfulness: A Handbook for Deepening Our Connection with Ourselves, Each Other, and the Planet, this retreat is appropriate for both experienced meditators and those who are new to practice.

Date: Saturday February 2th, 2019

Time: 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
