Even though the inaugural Sport + Spirit Women's Retreat weekend is now over, we are still left with the incredible memories.
Keynote speaker, Kirsten Bindseil brings a very timely and relevant message about the value of mindfulness to Sport + Spirit for Her retreat participants.
What is mindfulness and what can it add to our lives?
Mindfulness has exploded into the media in the last while but this has been a growing movement for decades in North America and much longer in other parts of the world.
Mindfulness has come into our everyday language – however, the meaning and definitions continue to be elusive.
This interactive discussion will explore the fundamental components of what is meant by mindfulness, discuss when we are most likely to be mindful and why the commitment to enhancing Mindfulness is worthy of our attention.
We will touch on some benefits that could include:
Enhancing one’s ability to feel refreshed and live their best life.
In times of difficulties, one has a sense of more options to learn and cope with the experience.
