Spring Renewal of the Heart (2-Day Retreat) | Mar 27, 2015 - Mar 29, 2015

Join Caverly Morgan for a transformative weekend retreat at Still Meadow Retreat Center in Oregon from March 27-29, 2015.

On this retreat we’ll renew our commitment to living from and resting in the heart. Spring is the perfect time to cultivate seeds of conscious intention. As with a garden, new intentions only flourish with proper nourishment. Within the stillness of retreat, discover how to nurture your true heart’s desire.

If you attended our New Year’s retreat or New Year’s workshop, this is a wonderful time for you to deepen the intentions you created.

If you’re new to retreat, it’s an opportunity to bring transformation to your life in a new way – from a place of love and awareness.

Activities include group discussion, guided exercises, journaling, visualization, meditation, and mindful movement. You’ll leave with the tools and practices to transform your life consciously.

No experience required, all are welcome.

Caverly Morgan has been practicing meditation since 1995, including eight years as a monk in the Zen tradition. She is the founding teacher of One House of Peace and brings insight, passion and humor to her transformative work with students of all ages.

“The power of retreat with Caverly is that you are guided to design and practice a ‘tool kit’ to recognize and intercept the internal negative talk and feelings we each have. This happens through the mentoring of a skillful teacher, intimate dialogue with other workshop members, and the repeated practice of exercises that connect with the breath, calm the mind, and energize the whole system. Over the several days of a retreat, your ability to practice gets deeper, no matter what level you start at, and stays with you longer in your post-retreat ‘daily life.'” — James, Arts Administrator

Retreat begins at 5pm on March 27th and ends at 1pm on March 29th.

Financial assistance is available.

Please Note: Prices cover the cost of room and board. They do not include Dana (donation) for the retreat teachings that One House of Peace offers. Tax-deductible donations for the teachings will be collected at the end of retreat.

Mindfulness and Making Workshop | Apr 5, 2015 - Apr 11, 2015

Our class focus will be the discovery of authentic personal entry points into the creative process. Together we will explore mindful participation with creativity and with life at large as we release the temptation toward control and “end-gain.”  We will employ crafts – including paste-paper, journal-making, clay work among other forms – as a vehicle for the practice of presence and receptivity and for experiencing our interconnectedness.  We will also explore meditation, developing personal strategies for bringing mindful practices into your life moving forward, and the role of service in the craft arts.  Questions such as “What does it mean to be a vehicle for creative life force while being an object maker?” and “How can our creative processes assist us in being more awake in the world?” will be addressed as well.
