Spiritual Retreats - Mindful Living

A gathering at the Crystal Hermitage

Mindful living is to embrace life with greater awareness, openness, willingness, and energy. Our Mindful Living classes will give you practical tools and a deeper experience of how to find peace and fulfillment within yourself, whatever you are doing—with the help of meditation, and by seeing yourself and others in a clearer, more conscious light.

Our Mindful Living programs cover a wide variety of areas. Each program offers you personal skills, techniques, and teachings for making your life richer and more purposeful.
