January Slowdown: A Half Day Meditation Retreat

Sunday, January 15 @ 10:00 am1:30 pm

Osher Marin JCC
200 North San Pedro Road
San Rafael, CA 94903 United States
Join us at the JCC for a half day meditation retreat led by Diane and Larry Yermack to slowdown after the busy time of the holidays!

The holidays can bring great joy but can also raise mixed emotions or hard feelings. Winter is also a time when we are often indoors, to make use of this time and get us back on track, experienced meditation teachers Diane and Larry Yermack are back to offer us a half day mini retreat at the JCC. They will guide us through cultivating three different qualities (known in the Jewish tradition as middot) which will bring us into 2023 with more calmness, compassion and joy. Learn how meditation can help us slow down and experience life in the present moment in the context of thousands of years of Jewish wisdom.

Larry and Diane Yermack lead a weekly meditation group at Congregation Kol Shofar and have years of experience as meditation teachers. They taught a Summer Slowdown, three week series at the JCC. No prior meditation experience required.

Please pack a lunch and prepare to immerse yourself in a half day of meditation techniques and learning. Please note this retreat will be mostly silent with fewer opportunities to reflect and discuss. Space is incredibly limited for this workshop!

No one will be turned away for lack of funds, please contact jrosenberg@marinjcc.org for cost-free registration.
