"Sing to me in the silence of your heart
and I will rise up to hear your triumphant song."
- Rumi

Please join us for an extended silent retreat of restoration, renewal, and remembrance, as we transition into the New Year by taking refuge in the depth of the heart - through silent meditaton and prayer, breathwork, and cultivating the heart of gratitude.

Practicing in the sanctuary of spiritual friendship and finding refuge for the soul are more necessary than ever in these tumultuous and often trying times.

Together we will step back from the intensity of this past year, and -through inward remembrance of the heart -reconnect to our inner wellsprings, and revitalize our outer lives and service in the world.

This retreat will include periods of silent meditation and prayer, solo renewal time, focused spiritual inquiry, experiential breathwork sessions, and intimate council process to nourish our gratitude for 2017 and prayerful aspirations for 2018.

This retreat is for adults of all ages and levels of experience, and sincere aspirants in any faith tradition, including 'spiritual but not religious' seekers - all are warmly welcomed.
