Meditation can provide a practical tool for busy legal professionals to quiet the mind, enhance clarity and awareness, and restore a more peaceful balance to their lives. This retreat will bring together members of the legal community, local legal scholars and clinicians, judges and mediators to learn and practice meditation together. We will also explore contemplative practices such as yoga, qigong and walking in nature, and discuss key questions about the connections between contemplative awareness, social justice and law.
Testimonials from past law retreats . . .
"On a daily basis, I use the wisdom, inner-strength, and ideas that came out of these lawyers' retreats."
"It was an opportunity to reflect deeply on the role of integrity, ethics, and trustworthiness in my work as a lawyer and in the legal profession as a whole - I was moved by the level of honesty in our discussions."
"The combination of silence, meditation, and very real and meaningful discussions - it allowed us to cut out all the networking and unnecessary discussions that often happen during a normal conference, and instead turn inward and take an honest look at ourselves as individuals and as lawyers - it allowed us to really be real with each other when we did speak."
