Actually, it seems like this retreat is for anyone and everyone, but the facilitator, Karen Maezen Miller, is the author of the fabulous book, “Mamma Zen: Walking the Crooked Path of Motherhood.” This is not a Yoga Matrika retreat, but since it may be of interest to many people in the Yoga Matrika community, I definitely wanted to help spread the word.

9:30 a.m.-4 p.m.
Unitarian Universalist Church of the South Hills
Where do you go to find a moment’s peace, patience and forgiveness? To calm your mind, reclaim your focus, and restore faith in yourself, your relationships, your work and your life? The Plunge offers you the place and time to find everything you might have thought you’d lost.
I’m so lucky to be returning to the rolling hills and rivers of Pittsburgh. Our home for the day is the warm and wonderful Unitarian Universalist Church of the South Hills, otherwise known as Sunnyhill.
All are welcome: mothers, fathers, grandparents, men, women, couples, singles and friends. The day lasts from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. and includes morning coffee and lunch, personal encouragement, spiritual refreshment, easy laughter, and good company. During the day, we travel from stillness to motion, examining the portals of love – attention, breath, faith, patience, forgiveness and peace – through beginning mindfulness practices such as seated and walking meditation and gentle yoga. It’s a perfect day to share.
Together, we realize the loving power of our own attention and the calming company of our own presence. Come, let’s welcome each other home.
