bird in winter

We can learn from nature and tune into the benefits of winter.  Leaves fall and provide nutrients for the soil, plants pull inward and gather nutrients into their roots, days are shorter, life in general slows down. Nature tucks into itself and the earth rests.  This rest provides a time for rejuvenation.

No experience with silent retreats is required. If you’ve been curious about being in silence, this is your chance to experience this in a safe and supportive environment.  This is a wonderful place to start your first experience with silence!

                     The quieter we become, the more we hear.     ~ Ram Daas


Do you need time and space to find your inspiration? Do you long to align with your personal rhythm and drop into an inner stillness that brings new awareness? In silence we are able to find a connection to ourselves and the universe that expands our sense of who were are. We live in a time of more. More products, more messages, more noise and more demands.  Our souls long for spaciousness, where we are able to take time to really listen to our own hearts, to nature, and to the Divine Imagination.  

During this silent retreat you will journey through an inner process of awareness that will begin with each person setting his or her INTENTIONS for the retreat and for the months ahead.  This is not a meditation retreat, although each day will start and end in silent mediation. It is time to settle into stillness and shed the social requirements of conversation. Time to connect with important questions in your life through processes such as Journaling, SoulCollage and Sand Tray.  

Is it time to give this gift to yourself?  Is it time to open to the unfolding inner adventure of your soul?
