SOMETHING IS HAPPENING DEEP IN THE SPIRITUAL STRUCTURES OF THE WORLD, slightly outside our conscious perception.  It is magical and points to the beginnings of waking up and directly opening to what is beyond our everyday lives: the Living, spiritual structure that allows us to be here.

DURING THIS EXPANDED SPIRITUAL RETREAT, Brenda will be sharing through meditation, direct insight and dialogue on a group and individual basis.  This is unlike any retreat she has offered in the past, as the focus will be more on enhancing spiritual unfoldment through heartfelt exploration.  This will be a personal discovery process to help catalyze spiritual movement without denying real individuality.

TIME WILL BE SET ASIDE for self-reflection and understanding through group and individual activities.  There will be gentle and compassionate attention to your body, mind, and emotional and spiritual awarenesses to ignite a deeper, peaceful and embodied presence for your spiritual unfoldment.

COME EXPLORE the awakening process of embodied existence that embraces both divine and human experience.  The body-mind is an expression of the living spirit and is not trivial just because it is temporary.  It is not something to “get rid of” or “get out of.”  The interplay between the divine field and your body-mind is the key to embodied existence.  Your life matters not just because you exist, but because your presence and your personal life expression is the Living Spirit incarnate.  This is the true purpose of existence.

Mid Day Breaks + Lunch Provided + Saturday Dinner

Delicious, nourishing meals & snacks will be served during your retreat. Our menu is prepared with simple, natural ingredients with an emphasis on health, flavor & balance. Each meal offers vegan and gluten free options and highlights organic and local produce whenever possible.  We take great care in serving a menu that is nutritious, tasty and also energetically balanced, to help enhance & support your retreat.
