In our busy lives, we rarely experience an extended period of quiet… of simply Being. For this weekend retreat, we create a space of Quietness for ourselves in the midst of community. We commit to ourselves and to each other our support, respect and presence. As we let go of speaking, we experience our connections to ourselves, to nature, and to one another in a completely different way.

You are invited to sink deeply into Being, rather than Doing.

There will be ample open time to walk the land and the labyrinth, to do movement or art in the spacious studio, to revel in the beauty of the Spirit House. Sit in the warm comfort of a fire in the Farmhouse. Enjoy the nurturing environment of Hope Springs…for contemplation, for rest, and for quiet. As always, there will be delicious, homemade meals. A massage therapist will be available for an additional charge. Tuition includes a double occupancy room.
