“What is the focus of this retreat?”
-To experience that nurturing component of nature which is readily available to us if we slow down and allow ourselves to be led.
-To leave our rational thinking self behind and open ourselves to wisdom beyond knowing through the power of slowing
What to expect:
Spend time in nature, slow down, be in the company of others, sing, dance, wander, play, tell stories and listen. Allow nature to have its way with you. The gift of slowing has a distinct feminine quality to it. It is an intuition within that invites a slow journey into wilderness where metaphors, intuitions, and archetypes arrive to guide us.
Madi greeted us, showed us around and while we were looking for a place to set up our tent in Apache Canyon she said “The canyon (nature) will heal you.” Sitting and sleeping on the ground connects us to the healing quality of Earth. Come to this retreat in nature for your well-being. Nature cannot not heal if we take time to be there. This life, this moment, this world, this universe is a miracle.
Come sink your fingers into my soil, walk barefoot on my body, come sit on my moss under the evergreens, be with the more than human world. Know that there is more to me than you have allowed yourself to see, feel, hear, taste and smell.
Come to speak out loud to the more than human world. Your query will be answered. Coincidences may show up. Intuitions may arrive in response.
We can’t save earth unless we savor it.
Come to savor the earth. In turn, it will heal you, it will delight in your presence, it will put your mind at ease.
