2-night Silent Retreat
Friday May 5th at 4 pm to Sunday May 7th at 4 pm, 2023
Featuring: The Way of Relationship
Forgetting who & what we really are happened in the context of relationship.
The great realization is that remembering our true nature is therefore most accessible within relationship.
Relationships abound in all of our lives. They’re here to wake us up in every way.
The Way of Relationship teaches us how to honor & uplift each other’s sacred presence in our lives.
It is a path to ClearBeing.
It’s in relationship with ourselves, others, the natural world, and Life itself that we are restored.
An invitation from Caroline:
Throughout time, retreats have been a precious opportunity for sincere seekers to give themselves more deeply to the truth of their being. They provide the supportive environment for resting in Silence, opening us to a deeper listening to our hearts, and leaving our souls nourished & our lives forever touched.
Spiritual practice is often seen as a relatively solitary endeavor. I’ve found, through observing my own unfolding, and through my role as a meditation teacher, soul coach and retreat leader, that including relationship in our awareness illuminates a blessedly direct path to peace & well-being.
Although on retreat it may look like we are withdrawing from relationships, the actual experience is that we’re constantly relating to our thoughts, emotions & bodies, to the other participants, to the teacher, to the natural world… relational awareness actually becomes more acute when we orient towards quietude.
What better time to refine the lens with which we see, and to experience relationality as a path to freedom?
The format of this retreat will give you a direct experience of the power of The Way of Relationship through guided, silent & interactive meditations. The mystery takes care of bringing forth that which is ready to be met.
Please note that while I have no doubt that you will find clarity around current relationships, we will primarily be relating to that which is right in front of us, moment to moment. As you may intuit, this touches everything.
My intention is that you will:
- access your natural state of loving-kindness towards yourself;
- see your current beautiful and challenging relationships (with people, work, addictions, your body, food, etc.) with eyes of gratitude & renewed receptivity;
- leave with a newfound capacity to continue to relate to Life with relaxation, clarity & fluidity.
- experience the peace that passes all understanding.
- deepen the connection with your unique gifts & capacities, and strengthen the momentum behind offering them to the world.
Our in-born capacity for intimacy with all things reveals itself in Silence.
Days are made up of a variety of activities including: guided, silent & interactive meditation, gentle movement, teachings, rest and free time. Nourishing & delicious plant-based meals are served, featuring food from our gardens and emphasizing whole, living & local foods. During breaks from scheduled activities you’re welcome to walk the trails, spend time in the gardens, sit by the pond, or relax on our decks and enjoy the stunning views.
Beyond the carefully designed structure, as retreat leader, I do my best to allow each gathering enough freedom to unfold within the mystery, trusting that Life wants us our wholeness more than we know and is providing for us every moment.
Please note that in order to create a container for deepening, most of this retreat will be held in Silence. You will be asked to turn off all cellular devices for the duration of the retreat. In case of emergencies, families will be able to reach you through the retreat manager’s phone. Also, please do not sign up for these retreats if you cannot arrive for the beginning and stay for the full period.
