Fall Urban Retreat

To make our retreat more financially accessible, we’re once again offering the option to bring a friend for half off their retreat cost! Details will be emailed to you after you register.

Join Caverly Morgan this fall for a non-residential urban retreat Befriending the Emotions:

So often we struggle because we’re resisting, fixing, changing, or even transcending our experiences. What happens when instead of pushing our emotions away, we invite them closer in? How can we reach the place where we might even tell our emotions that they’re welcome to stay forever? Join us as we explore this rich topic.

The weekend will include meditations and self-reflective explorations, relational mindfulness exercises, and conscious, compassionate communication skills.

Friday, October 7: 6:00pm – 8:00pm
Saturday, October 8: 10:00am – 5:00pm
Sunday, October 9: 10:00am – 3:00pm

Cost: $150 early bird. $175 regular.

No experience required. All welcome.

We are deeply committed to being an open and inclusive community, accepting and supporting diversity in age, race, physical and mental abilities, as well as sexual orientation and gender identity. Please let us know how we can fully support your retreat experience.

Caverly Morgan is the founding meditation teacher at One House of Peace, a nonprofit bringing awareness practice to adults and teens. She has been dedicated to practice since 1995, including eight years in a monastic setting. Her teachings integrate the original spirit of Zen with a contemporary nondual approach.

 

Awakening to the New Year - A Five-Day Retreat with Caverly | Dec 28, 2016 - Jan 2, 2017
Awakening to the New Year - A Five-Day Retreat with Caverly

mainspace

This retreat isn’t about making resolutions, though it is about intention. It’s about realizing your deepest hearts 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. Stay tuned for details and pricing!

No experience required. All are welcome. Given our deep commitment to being an open and inclusive community, accepting and supporting diversity in age, race, physical and mental abilities, as well as sexual orientation and gender identity, please let us know how we can fully support your retreat experience.

Activities include meditation, group discussions and private guidance sessions with Caverly, guided imagery, journaling, and mindful walking — all within the backdrop of silence.
