Eleni has created Deepening your Daily Practice to guide people to create a habit of the daily practices they have always wanted to nourish and inspire their lives. During our 1 day retreat we worked together to create a schedule consisting of the activities I want to dedicate time to. I went into it unsure of how impactful it would be because I have pretty regular yoga and meditation practices.
I soon realized that this 1 day retreat is much more than mindfulness practices, it was truly dedicated to me and doing exactly what I wanted to do, and it kept me focused enough to actually do those things. The magic of this offering is the structure Eleni creates along with the depth of her experience which allows her to support you in almost any creative or mindfulness practice. I left completely refreshed and much more connected with myself and present with those around me. An unexpected practice that developed was not using my phone on Saturday’s for 3 weeks after the day.
Eleni and I have checked in weekly and discussed where I am with my progress; she’s full of creative suggestions for how I can work around limited time or space and still maintain the practices that are important to me. I have my next retreat coming up next weekend and I’m really looking forward to the time to tune into myself and reconnect. Sena Shellenberger
I did a day long home retreat with Eleni and I can only say good things about her and the retreat. One thing that became so apparent to me as Eleni held space for me to dive into practices and not be disturbed by my usual day to day life, was how exhausted I really was. I usually have huge amounts of energy throughout the day and rush from task to task never really stopping. During this retreat where we really slowed down in a luxurious way, I discovered that my body is so exhausted that I really need to do this sort of thing more often.Eleni created a very safe space and guided me sweetly through the practices I wanted to explore including an hour long art session which was challenging and amazing for me. I highly recommend a home retreat. Manu B.
I never thought about making my home practice into a day long practice, let alone a sangha experience, until I had a day long with Eleni. Working with Eleni was an easy, collaborative experience. We crafted a day where presence was key in all aspects of our activities, and I got to deepen my practice in a relaxed and creative way. R.H.
My Practice Day with Eleni was amazing! She did a wonderful job of guiding the day in a mindful and therapeutic way for me. Eleni created and catered a beautiful, focused, and peaceful day for me to relax, practice, and become clearer about things I have wanted to work on. I appreciate the different readings and inspirational quotes she shared with me as well as the journaling work we did together.
Eleni’s voice was very soothing; it helped me relax and settle more deeply into my body during the guided meditations and yoga session she led me through. I felt no pressure and completely supported throughout the day. This peaceful and focused feeling stayed with me for many days after, and I felt clearer around many of the things we worked on together. Luisa P.
…That (individualized, guided meditation)was an incredible process. Laid out so beautifully and timed so well. And your soothing voice is just perfect. Well done and very effective!! Ron Ogulnick
