Mindfulness retreat in Cumberland

“The Happiness Factors – a day of Mindfulness” is a one-day workshop with Margo McLoughlin being offered on Saturday, Feb. 21, at the Purusa Movement Studio in Cumberland.

A whole new field of scientific study has emerged in recent years – the neuroscience of well-being. One of the principal observations has been the potential of mindfulness to re-wire habitual patterns of the mind. This is good news for those of us who would like to feel a sense of contentment and ease, no matter what’s happening in the ups and downs of our lives.

This one-day workshop is being led by former Valley resident Margo McLoughlin, a graduate of the Community Dharma Leader training program at Spirit Rock Meditation Center in California.

McLoughlin leads retreats and workshops in Canada, the U.S., and Ireland. She is currently a writer and teacher in Victoria.

The Purusa Movement Studio is located at 2703 Dunsmuir Ave.

The registration fee for this retreat is by donation. Participants will also be able to offer a donation for the teaching.

To register, please contact Jane McCarroll at 250-334-0086. Registration is limited to about 20 people, so please sign up early if you are interested in going.
