Events

The following Events include group retreats, personal retreats, and ongoing training sessions.

The retreat process offers individuals or groups of people an experience that brings about a deeper communion and awakening in life, a feeling of well being, and also healing. You will work with a carefully trained retreat guide using techniques of meditation, breath, sound, light, magnetism and presence, to soften and deepen the experience of the heart, releasing new energy and vitality into your life. Healing can happen in the body, the mind, and the feelings. It can renew the soul and spirit. It can also affect your relationship with your self, with others, and with all of life. 

What will I do on a healing retreat? When you are on a healing retreat you dedicate a number of days of your life to do healing practices in an intensive manner. You will work with a carefully trained retreat guide, with practices specifically designed for you, in a setting conducive to healing.

In the second year we begin offering short retreats to each other and close friends.

We will use the Healing Retreat manual as a teaching tool.  

Everyone taking this course needs to have a guide.  It is an advanced training.
