During this workshop we will explore how mindfulness practice, slowing down, and letting go can clarify and increase our accomplishments, lead to more meaning in our lives, and allow for greater ease and satisfaction. We will explore practices for reducing fear, assumptions, distractions, resistance, and unnecessary busyness - leading to "finding the one who is not busy" - developing the ability to find stillness and calm in the midst of the activity and intensity of our lives. This is an experiential workshop that will draw from spiritual practices, leadership practices, and creative expression.
