Find Your Ease: Retreat for Lawyers
The theme for the retreat is relaxation and rejuvenation. You'll have an opportunity to practice mindfulness, meditation, engage in dialogue with other like minded lawyers, swim, soak in the hot tub, enjoy nature, go for walks, read, journal and sit by the fire in the evenings. We'll explore various ways of bringing more joy into everyday life — both in our law practice and elsewhere.
About Mayacamas Ranch

The natural setting of breathtaking rustic beauty invites you to slow down, breathe deeply, and experience the sensation of time standing still.
Explore the hiking trails through chaparral and evergreen forest, swim in the spectacular ozone pool with awe-inspiring views overlooking miles of untouched native land, canoe on the hidden lake, and discover your favorite spot for meditation.
Engage in field games on the meadow, delight in the beauty of the organic gardens, or relax in your comfortable cabin with its cozy organic bedding.

About Jeena Cho
I teach lawyers to harness the power of mindfulness to decrease stress and anxiety while increasing focus and concentration. I have special insights into what lawyers go through, because I AM a lawyer.
I started my legal career as an assistant state attorney in 2004, handling domestic violence cases, and I have been practicing bankruptcy law at JC Law Group PC since 2009.
I’m the co-author of The Anxious Lawyer, the first book published by the American Bar Association on mindfulness and meditation. Today I speak, coach, and provide training to law firms on how lawyers can use mindfulness to boost productivity while enjoying a happier and more fulfilling professional and personal life.
