We have decided to offer the May mindfulness retreat online via Zoom.Your health and wellbeing, and that of the community, are of the utmost importance to the Bakken Center for Spirituality & Healing. Due to the uncertainty and public health concern created by COVID-19, we have made the decision to cancel all upcoming in person retreats. We will continue to monitor the situation, and will reconvene the half-day mindfulness retreats when it is safe to gather together again. In the interim, we are offering free webinars on a variety of wellbeing topics, and free online Stress Busters sessions, which includes guided meditation and gentle movement.
Mindfulness retreats are appropriate for those who are new to mindfulness as well as those who have completed a previous mindfulness program or have a personal practice.
If you are not a NBHWC certified health coach, it is your responsibility to confirm that the course or event meets the requirements of your governing institution or credentialing board and that they will accept NBHWC CEUs. NBHWC CEUs are non-refundable and non-transferable.
