Daylong: Gratitude Retreat
with Trish Magyari
11/24/2017 9:30 AM  -  4:00 PM
at Baltimore Yoga Village, Hampden (Baltimore)
Gratitude is healthy for the heart. Yet so much of what we are automatically drawn to notice is the unpleasant—experiences we reject as bad or wrong or not quite good enough. In this silent daylong retreat, we’ll be resting in the spacious now—allowing it to be “enough”.
