About Mindfulness Workshops:
The Inn at Vaucluse Spring is excited to announce our next set of monthly Introduction to Mindfulness workshops. Whether you are wanting to decrease stress or simply invite more joy and meaning into life, mindfulness is a powerful tool that we can all cultivate with practice.
We truly can retrain our brains to find more peace, ease, and innate wisdom. These experiential workshops will introduce you to key concepts of mindfulness, stress reduction, and specific techniques to establish and deepen your practice. Class size is limited due to the intimate nature of this work and will consist of 12 hours of direct instruction, sharing, and practice.
Prior to enrollment in the class, there will be an interview process to assure a good fit, establish personal goals, and answer any questions. Your teacher, Tiffany Niide M.D., Ph.D. has an extensive background in personal mindfulness practice, trainings and clinical applications of mindfulness. She so enjoys sharing her passion with others because mindfulness has been so transformational for her personally, as well as in working with communities, organizations, and clients. Classes are designed to be residential in nature and available to guests of the Inn, though we do love to open up spaces to community members when we can. Cost of workshop is $240 per person residential, $280pp for outside guests, includes our gourmet 3-course breakfasts.
