Do you experience stress when you think about visiting family for the
holidays? Or do you want to create a holiday experience for your children that
is fun, connecting and relaxed?
Join Angela Marie Patnode for a half-day silent retreat on Sunday, Nov. 24, at
Santosha Wellness Center in Big Sky to learn techniques for quickly accessing
a quiet place within. Patnode will offer guidance on going into the holiday
season with awareness and intention for a more balanced and uplifting family
time, and participants will explore sitting, walking, sound and eating
The retreat, which lasts from 12-4 p.m., is open to any level of meditation
experience. Register online at
