23 Jun The Longing Retreat
A weekend retreat to
(re)connect with Source
on your own terms
Join us in a safe and sacred space to explore nourishing ways to create, or to strengthen, your relationship with Divine. Lift the veil between our 3-dimensional reality and the unseen world where the meaning of life can be imagined. We will make our way back Home with a playful spirit, as we contemplate, meditate, share and create (through movement, written word and art). You are invited to read this post to better understand the 3 Faces of Spirit which we will experience together.
Whatever your spiritual background or wherever you are on your journey, this retreat offers the opportunity to be guided out of the head and into the heart. Extend this precious gift to yourself by taking time out of your busy life to focus on the spiritual realm. Here you may be shown parts of yourself that have long been forgotten and begin to look at life with increased awe and grace.
