Led by Daniel Rechtschaffen

September 8 - 10, 2017

Being Present for Your Life

A Mindfulness Meditation Retreat led by Jane and James Baraz

July 23 - 30, 2017

in Hofheim/Unterfranken, Germany

How much are you present for your own life? Most of us spend more time in our own inner world—worrying about the future, replaying the past, or lost in fantasy—than experiencing what life is offering to us right now. The present moment is where we can most directly be intimate with our life—touched by beauty and intimacy, while learning through the difficult lessons how to open our hearts.
