Queenly mindfulness retreats
Mindfulness means being fully aware in each present moment, and it could transform the way you go about your daily life. By paying more attention to your own thoughts and feelings, and to the world around you, you can vastly improve your mental and emotional wellbeing. A mindfulness retreat might include seated sessions of mindfulness where you work with your breath or an object such as a flower or a candle and focus on the sensations you feel, or it might include activities designed to help you reconnect to your body and experience mindfulness, through gentle motion, active movement or even creative art. Take your pick from these retreats we have reviewed and recommend.
