Endless Summer: Mindfulness Meditations for Longevity and Joy

  • Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health 57 Interlaken Road Stockbridge, MA, 01266 United States (map)

For all levels

Everybody loves a fun 4th of July backyard party filled with good food, great friends, and fun. But what happens to us when the holiday fireworks burn out and we return to the day to day of life?  How do we cultivate lasting feelings of celebration, togetherness, and inspiration?  This weekend, revel in refreshing meditations and outdoor mindfulness experiences that offer lifelong access to happiness, vigor, and delight. 

Together, we will:

  • Meditate, stargaze, and mindfully walk in nature to examine how the natural elements govern the seasons of our lives;

  • Experience mindful moments of silence, meditate on sounds of nature, and enjoy friendly conversation by the mesmerizing beauty of a summer campfire;

  • Create a group sand mandala to remind ourselves of the interconnectedness of all beings and events;

  • Experience indoor seated meditations as gateways to wisdom and joy;

  • Explore techniques to unlock an inner world filled with limitless compassion, contentment, and insight;

  • Move, play, share, and connect.

Come discover the infinite possibility of your best self. Learn to tap into endless streams of peacefulness and tranquility. Using the tools of mindfulness and meditation, find a source of inner radiance that can never fade.  Being mindful doesn't have to mean just sitting still.  A mindful life really can feel like a delightful, connected, endless summer.  Join us!

Note: Participants should be prepared for gentle walks through fields and nature trails. Appropriate footwear (and rain gear) required.
