Carnegie Mellon University

Mind, Body & Spirit Retreats

Join us for an opportunity to rest, rejuvenate and connect with other Carnegie Mellon community members each semester during one of our Mind, Body, and Spirit Retreats. We are continuously changing up the focus, format and content of these retreats, to appeal to a wide audience. 

The Power of Rest

We are excited to offer a Spring 2021, all virtual, six week restorative series entitled The Power of Rest, led by Eliza Bishop ('02).

Dates include January 7, 14, 21, 28, and February 4 and 11, 1-1:45 pm EST. Zoom link will be emailed to all registrants 48 hours prior to first class. Register HERE.

What’s the secret behind having a happy, healthy, and fulfilling life? It’s not such a mystery - it’s built of daily habits, choices, and a clear connection to the purpose in one's heart. So first we need to connect with who we are and who we are not.

In this six week series, we will learn how to offer self-compassion in this time of uncertainty and challenge. We will practice resting an overactive mind and learn to be, so that we can create healthy boundaries in our lives that allow us to fully show up. There will be bite sized tips to integrate into daily life, exercises that support moving through fear, anxiety, and loneliness to reclaim power, peace, and joy.

Everybody is welcome - from your desk at work, to your couch at home - join in! While it is not a requirement to join all six sessions, we believe consistent attendance will offer the most benefit.

For this series, bring a notebook and a pen to the computer and show up fully for yourself - that's it!
