With Paul Norton
Our hope is that this program be affordable to all, so in lieu of a set fee for this retreat, Dr. Norton is asking that contributions be made to the Christine Center.
Suggested contribution is $150. More, or less, is acceptable, based on your individual situation. There is an additional fee for housing and meals.
For millennia, spiritual practices, especially meditation, have been known to have many positive attributes for our lives. The explosion of information in the neuroscience field confirms this and gives us new opportunities to modify these processes for modern times. Paul Norton will explore the recent information and give guidance about how it can help us live with more connection and grace.
The session will include meditations as well as information. There will also be time for group discussions, and individual quiet/rest time.
If you have questions about the retreat, please do not hesitate to contact Paul: paul.norton@Milwaukeemindfulness.com
