“Listen to the wind…it talks

Listen to the silence…it speaks

Listen to your heart…it knows.”

2018 Listening Retreat Weekends:

March 9 – 11

April 27 – 29

June 1 – 3

October 5 – 7

 

Have you ever asked yourself any of these questions:

Who am I, and why am I here?

Why do I work so hard (at a job I hate)?

What is this sense of yearning I feel?

 

Have you ever wondered what it would feel like to immerse yourself in a weekend of:

Nature and Nurture, 

Quiet and Inspiration,

Mystery and Magic?

Does the prospect sound tantalizing?

The lingering effects of living in our society these days can include:

  • anxiety;
  • loneliness;
  • depression;
  • emptiness; or
  • a sense of something being “missing” in our lives.

Often, we try to numb ourselves from these feelings – or fill the void of that missing “something” – by engaging in all sorts of activities, many of which run counter to how we truly want to live:

  • binge-watching tv, from escapist fare to politics;
  • immersing ourselves on FB or other social media;
  • drinking what we secretly know is “too much” or too often;
  • dipping into our prescription meds – because we hurt;
  • shopping for stuff we know we don’t need.

Rarely, however, do we try listening.

Such a simple concept, yet a skill few of us have mastered.

  • Spending time by ourselves in Nature
  • Journaling
  • Listening to our hearts
  • Discovering the voices of Nature and Spirit

  • Remembering – and listening to – our soul’s yearnings
  • Engaging in simple, but meaningful, ceremony

What have other “Listening Retreaters” had to say about their experiences? 

“Your listening retreats not only allow for individual clarity, they have given an opportunity to make new friends. (…) When I ask… I receive! A wonderful thing you have taught me.”

– Judy, Bucks County, PA

 

“I’m so glad (my wife and I) decided to (attend the Listening Retreat). I feel much more connected to who I am, who I’m supposed to be, and why a lot of the bullshit I went through to get here is now in a greater context. My eyes, and my ears, and the door are open to the next step.”

–  CDR, Bucks County, PA artist and author

 

“I thought the weekend was incredible.”

– Toby, NYC, NY

 

“Thank you for the weekend, thank you for the courage to listen to spirit to do it, thank you for patiently listening to all the visions and questions and thank you for encouraging all of us every hour for the entire time. As for me…I am so happy and clear.”

– Luz Kraujalis, Hot Springs, NC
