You may need a digital mindfulness retreat if…
You can’t remember the last time you woke up, went to bed, ate a meal, waited for your coffee, stood in line, rode the bus or enjoyed any kind of downtime without looking at your phone.
You can’t recall the last time you felt able to be in-the-moment during joyful and significant life events without the pressure of documenting them on social media
You feel numbed and paralyzed by constant exposure to the 24-hour news cycle to the point where you feel hopeless and unable to commit to action and activism to heal and transform your community, country and world.
