Trusting Life, Releasing into Love: A 5-Day Retreat | Aug 7, 2014 - Aug 11, 2014

We are deeply conditioned to attempt to control life. We are habituated to try to manage others and ourselves. Our striving never leads to peace, however, and we are often left feeling isolated, overwhelmed, depressed. With Awareness Practice we learn to trust life. In doing so, we are freed from our perceived need to effort our way through existence. Our experience of interconnection deepens, and we learn to recognize the love that’s here when we stop doing everything else. Join us as we delve more deeply into this topic and practice trusting life, together.

No experience required. All are welcome.

Awaken Your Heart's Desire in the New Year (4-Day Retreat) | Dec 30, 2014 - Jan 3, 2015

This retreat isn’t about making resolutions. It’s about waking up to your deepest intentions. It’s about embracing change out of love and passion, not obligation and fear.

Join us for an inspiring and empowering journey of self-discovery. Use the practice of awareness to recognize that the path of change is effortless. Disengage yourself from your inner critic – the slave driver of the New Year’s resolution. Your intentions can be realized through compassion and acceptance. This is truly the path of least resistance.

Zen teacher and former monk, Caverly Morgan, is known for her insight, humor, and real-world perspective. She challenges you to disarm self-limiting beliefs and live from your deepest heart’s desire.

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.
