This retreat isn’t about making resolutions, though it is about intention. It’s about realizing your deepest heart’s desire. It’s about embracing change out of love and passion, not obligation and fear. Through awareness practice, we remember who we authentically are. We remember what we authentically are. When moving through the world from that recognition, intention manifests differently than when our attention is aligned with the feeling of separation. From separation, awareness practice is distorted into a self-improvement plan and resolutions are a familiar and painful by-product. This retreat focuses on the alternative.
Join us for an inspiring and empowering journey of self-inquiry on this silent retreat. The retreat takes place from December 28-January 2 at Still Meadow Retreat Center in the tranquil Oregon countryside 30 minutes from Portland. Click to see photos of Still Meadow Retreat Center.
