From 1:00 to 4:00 p.m., A Ship in the Woods is offering a unique retreat (dinner is included after from 4:00 – 5:30 p.m.). During this retreat, the audience is encouraged to take a break their daily routines to receive a deep dose of the self-care they deserve. They will learn that the proven secret to being more effective and living a happier, healthier life is to slow down and learn mindful method tools like mindfulness, meditation, self-compassion practice, gratitude and happiness practice.

They will experience these evidence-based techniques in an intimate retreat setting with mindfulness expert Julie Potiker. She is the author of the book “Life Falls Apart, But You Don't Have To: Mindful Methods for Staying Calm in the Midst of Chaos." Julie’s fun, upbeat and authentic approach has been lauded by her fans, now numbering over 70,000!

In addition, an internal martial art practice will be taught by Yunuen Rhi. It applies Ying-Yang philosophy to a martial body movement practice. It harnesses wisdom from Taoist and Buddhist principles dating back to the founder of Shaolin Kung Fu and Zen Buddhism. Return home feeling recharged, with a better chance of witnessing 2019 unfold with more balance and ease.
