Mid-Summer Mindfulness Retreat with Miss Amanda Anderson & Gena Adams-Riley

July 9, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 5:30 pm


Join our friend Miss Amanda Anderson for a daylong retreat of yoga and mindful meditation.

Don’t let summer rush by – slow down with us and notice each wonderful, warm summer moment of the glory that is Vermont in midsummer.  Experienced yoga teacher Miss Amanda” Anderson and visiting mindfulness meditation teacher Gena Adams-Riley will be guiding you through a day of yoga, hiking, mindfulness meditation, discussion, and a fantastic communal lunch. We will practice mindfulness in various settings: not only on the cushion, but in the woods, on the mat, and even in the hot tub!

We’ll begin our day at the Camp Plymouth State Park in Ludlow, VT with a Yoga Hike, an invigorating moving meditation led by Miss Amanda where we use the natural features of the forest to support our yoga poses.  We’ll then reward ourselves with a gourmet vegetarian lunch in the calm, healing space of Good Commons.  Afterward, we’ll connect with each other with a discussion on maintaining mindfulness in our daily lives.  With 18 years of meditation practice and a thriving meditation-teaching business, Gena has much wisdom to share from her experience.

We’ll continue retreating through the afternoon: first with a guided meditation by Gena, followed by a soak in the Good Commons hot tub, and culminating in a yoga-nidra (psychic sleep) guided meditation led by Miss Amanda.

“You can use your mind, to change your brain, to change your mind.” 
– Rick Hanson, Meditator + Neuropsychologist
