“In this age of unprecedented distraction and information density, every professional needs tools to clear the mind, calm the body and reveal what matters most. It is both a practical, and a personal necessity.” – Steven Keeva, author of Transforming Practices: Finding Joy and Satisfaction in the Legal Life

Mindfulness meditation can provide a practical tool for busy legal professionals to enhance their law practice, quiet the mind, increase clarity and awareness, and restore a more peaceful balance to their lives. This program will include meditation instruction and practice, and will explore the interplay between contemplative and legal practices and the role meditation can play in enriching the professional lives of lawyers. The program is appropriate for beginners and experienced meditators.

The leadership for the retreat is comprised of senior meditation teachers and lawyers with substantial experience in both law and meditation practice. Open to attorneys, judges, law students, legal professors, mediators and other legal professionals.
