How is it that some people manage to remain calm, serene and at peace regardless of the crazy that is going on all around them, while others (the other 99%) lose their cool and their joy the minute outside challenges and stresses arise? Would you like to learn how to be in that rare group that somehow lets outside circumstances wash over them like a wave and stay joyful regardless of what is happening in your life?

You can be. Learning to be present and letting the internal drive you rather than the external isn’t a blessing bestowed on a few, it’s a skill that can be learned by ANYONE.Unplug Meditation and Natalie Bell are thrilled to present The Joy of Presence. Natalie has been teaching individuals for nearly two decades how to use mindfulness and meditation to find calm amidst the stress and chaos of life, and from April 26-29 2018 this sought after expert brings her teaching to an exclusive retreat at Canyon Ranch Lenox.

Natalie will hold three special sessions per day designed to give you the tools you need to leave the retreat transformed and able to navigate the real world with a sense of calm and peace you never knew possible. You’ll leave this powerful weekend with:

  • Greater Focus
  • Improved confidence
  • Stronger communication abilities
  • The ability to get rid of habitual thoughts
  • Tools to overcome fear
  • The ability to perform at your peak regardless of external circumstances

Natalie’s unique training will be augmented by the fitness, relaxation, and pampering Canyon Ranch is known for. Together they combine to offer four days that will change your life forever.
