Relax and rejuvenate. 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.
Our programs are designed by lawyers for lawyers to deliver mindfulness training in bite sized pieces that can be incorporated into lawyer’s busy schedule. The programs can be general or tailored to meet your firm’s needs.
