Feeling Good: A Day of Practices for Positivity, Pleasure, and Gratitude
with Jessica Graham and Christopher Kelly, Ph.D.
Healing and awakening can be a lot of work, and psycho-spiritual burnout can happen along the path. To create balance and promote ease in your practice and life, it’s important to find time for just feeling good. And the good news is focusing on positive experience is just as powerful for spiritual growth as focusing on the more challenging material. This daylong meditation retreat will be a smorgasbord of practices designed to encourage and enhance positivity, pleasure, and gratitude. You’ll gain tools that you can use both in your formal meditation practice and in daily life, and get a big boost of feeling good within a kind community of like-hearted humans.
