We have set the date for the Snap to Attention™ retreat to be held at the beautiful Spirit Mountain Retreat in Idyllwild, CA (nearest airport is Palm Springs). The two-day program will be held on the first weekend in November. Check here at this post for more details soon, email me to be notified when they are added, or join the Spirit Mountain mailing list.
This a short description of the program:
Snap to Attention™: Increasing Self-Awareness with Your Smartphone’s Camera
Brain science has proven what wise people have always known: Two critical components of resolving conflict, achieving career satisfaction, serving clients, and excelling at many other personal and professional endeavors are sharp and sensitive self-awareness and awake and aware attention. Many of us have in our pocket a tool to increase those skills of awareness and attention: our phone camera. We will look at how the camera’s filters, frames, and focus are metaphors for how we see the world, and ways to use our camera to increase our moment-to-moment mindfulness. Bring your smartphone and mind to increase in-sight and out-sight.
We will of course have time for contemplative activities, including photo snapping, on Spirit Mountain's beautiful grounds.
