A Daylong Retreat with Deborah Eden Tull
We all struggle at times with how to bring our meditation practice 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, in conflict, on a date, 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. This transformative practice is a means for remembering that the quality of every relationship we will ever have stems from the quality of our relationship with ourselves.
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, this restorative and experiential retreat offers illuminating and heart-opening practices that can be integrated into every moment of life. It involves meditation, relational practices, writing, and facilitated group discussion. With Eden and others, return to a simple understanding — that the subtlest form of love is attention — something we can only remember when we are present.
Please wear comfortable clothing for meditation and bring a journal.
