Five Stones Launches ‘Mindful Way’ Program

As part of its effort to transform the health of individuals and communities, Five Stones Institute in Leesburg is offering a revolutionary program focused on the benefits of mindfulness for a balanced, healthy life.

There will be 6- and 12-month programs for those who wish to commit to mindfulness in a community.

“The Mindful Way” will begin on Saturday, Jan. 12 at Ballentine Farm near Waterford. It will consist of monthly mindfulness mini-retreats, as well as weekly group meditation sessions and other workshops and classes focused on bringing stress management tools centered on Mindfulness to the Loudoun County region.

Mindfulness is the practice of focusing attention purposely on the present moment—and accepting it without judgment. Research has proven its effectiveness in health and wellness. It is a great antidote to stress and has been shown to improve physical and emotional symptoms, as well as a multitude of health-related symptoms like high blood pressure, chronic pain, insomnia, depression and anxiety.

         The programwill be led by Loudoun-based functional medicine doctor Martha Calihan and Five Stones Institute instructors Turi Nevin-Turkel, Christine Reeley and Lara Lattman.

Limited scholarship slots are available.
