Find Your Ease: Retreat for Lawyers

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.

Retreat Update (October 24, 2017):
Napa, Sonoma and surrounding areas have been devastated by multiple wildfires. I am very sad to share that one of the many properties that burned down in the fire is Mayacamas, the location of our retreat in June 2018. They do not anticipate being able to restore the property in time for our retreat. Needless to say, this is heartbreaking for the people that work there as well as the retreat leaders and attendees.

We have secured a substitute venue — absolutely stunning location at Seascape Beach Resort in Aptos, California. It’s a short drive from Santa Cruz, and approximately 70 miles South of SFO, which is closer than Mayacamas. Retreat dates are the same: June 22 - 24, 2018.

About Seascape Beach Resort

Luxury of a Resort with all the Comforts of a Beach Home

You will enjoy this beautiful resort with 17 miles of beach. We’ll have the opportunity to practice walking meditation, enjoy the sunsets and have a firepit in the evening complete with s'mores right on the beach!

The entire property is located on the cliff of the Pacific Ocean. Watch the dolphins  play in the ocean. Go for a swim, soak in the hot tub, curl up with a good book, relax, restore and rejuvenate. 

 

The closest airports are Sonoma County Airport (30 mins drive), San Francisco (SFO), San Jose (SJC) Airports.

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.
