About The Event
3 Days/2 Nights: $425 includes food, lodging, and supplies.
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.
- Individual guidance will be available before and throughout the retreat.
- There will be guided activities throughout the weekend, including music for movement and meditation.
- All activities are completely optional, allowing you to honor your own inner guidance in each moment.
There will be ample open time to walk the land and the labyrinth, to do movement and 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, stillness, and restorative quiet. As always, there will be delicious and intentional homemade meals. Registration includes a double occupancy room.
