I came to the retreat suffering from severe grief and stress. The teachings and practices I learned, plus the surroundings and treatments, helped IMMENSELY to manage the stress. [I] remember what it felt like to feel free and light and to feel a sense of spaciousness that I haven’t experienced in a long time.
This weekday retreat was a gift of stopping and solitude. The Building Resilience program is for anyone on a pathway of awareness. It had just enough structure and information as fuel, and ample free time for rest, contemplation, and healing.
I learned how to practice diaphragmatic breathing to increase health, how to use biofeedback to manage the autonomic nervous system, and I learned about paradoxical breathing and connection to startle response.
