Mindfulness Meditation Retreat
Dear Fellow Spiritual Seeker,
You are invited to join us at the Inner Peace Mindfulness Meditation retreat on September 9-12th, 2019. This 4-day retreat will be held in the scenic and quiet countryside of Browns Summit, North Carolina.
The mindfulness meditation retreat is the most powerful tool available for developing mindfulness, and realizing true inner peace. By fully immersing yourself in the practice, you can literally make years’ worth of progress in just a matter of days. The effectiveness of the retreat comes from giving your mind the rest necessary for it to settle down to deeper level than is possible at home during your normal busy life.
Whether you’re a beginner or experienced meditator, you will learn the proper meditation techniques, so you keep making steady progress in your spiritual development. You will learn how to:
- Overcome the stress of daily life
- Develop greater self-confidence
- Improve your relationships with loved ones
- Stay focused and committed to your practice
- Find true happiness and inner peace
There will be lectures, discussions, Q&As, meditation, and plenty of time to relax. Those who are interested can also have private discussions with the instructor, Charles A. Francis.
Through this retreat, you will experience the full power of the mindfulness meditation practice, and take a big step forward in your spiritual development.
