Winter Session of Yearlong
Jan
17
to Jan 21

Winter Session of Yearlong

Our final five days take place in the winter at a private retreat center in the rolling coastal hills, outside of Occidental, that reach toward the visible and beckoning ocean five miles away. This gathering is a time to harvest what has been sown over the year and to joyfully celebrate our unfoldings as we prepare to re-weave ourselves back into our lives with our whole hearts intact. We will spend ample time supporting you in how to best return to your life and community at home. Our focus will be less on holding onto whatever vision you might have received during the year, and more on how to fully embody and abide in the shift from “trying to move through the world” to “allowing the world to move through you”! Visit the Yearlong Journey page for more information.

Fall Session of Yearlong
Sep
22
to Sep 30

Fall Session of Yearlong

  • Mojave National Preserve (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

The threshold of the year is an nine-day journey in the fall, which centers on a three-day solo immersion in beautifully bio-diverse Mojave National Preserve. Historically, the wilderness has been a place for initiating humans into their authentic being. Leaving our everyday context and immersing ourselves in the rhythms and cycles of the natural world draws us beyond the confines of our usual definitions. It is then that we stand at the doorway of our deepest identity – that which is vast, ever changing and intimately connected with all Life. Through a four-day fast (which can include anything from fasting with only water to lightly eating for those with health concerns), we go with open hearts and only the necessary gear to discover what is most essential. Visit the Yearlong Journey page for more information.

Living Resiliency Workshop

Living Resiliency Workshop

  • 2185 California 116 Sebastopol, CA, 95472 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

In this current planetary moment, we are presented with an extraordinary opportunity to create truly regenerative earth and thriving human communities. To do so, it is essential that we find ways to support ourselves, individually and collectively, to be clear and effective instruments of change. Given all we are facing and all many of us live with in our day to day lives and circumstances, it is easy to feel overwhelmed. Living Resiliency teaches tools, based on cutting edge research about the brain and our biology, that increase our innate resiliency and ability to adapt to change, personally as well as in our professional and community lives. Visit the Living Resiliency page for more information.

Immersion Retreat
Aug
2
to Aug 6

Immersion Retreat

The Immersion Retreat is a deep dive for those who want to experience the heart of Ecology of Awakening. The invitation is to begin to shift our center of gravity: out of what is conditioned and separate, into what is ever-evolving and connected with all Life. In order to do this vital work, we come together in community. For five days we live in close relation with the land in the rolling coastal hills outside of Occidental that reach toward the visible and beckoning ocean five miles away.The primary teacher will be the vibrant ecosystem with its sensuous hills, fir forests, coyotes and hawks, as well as the unique group of people who come together.  Visit the Immersion Retreat webpage for more

Embodiment Retreat
May
24
to May 28

Embodiment Retreat

The Embodiment Retreat is open only to those who have completed the Yearlong Journey. Its primary focus is on the betwixt and between ‘space between stories’' - where the old has fallen away and something new is trying to lead the way. This phase of 'awakening' can be immensely freeing as well as disorienting and, at times, isolating. Yet we can support the organic wisdom of what is taking place by gathering together, creating the context for what is unfolding, and sharing and deepening into various tools and ways of ‘being’ within this space. Our time will unfold between context/framing, inquiry, listening meditation, time on the land and giving way to what arises individually and as a whole. Visit the Embodiment page for more information.

The yearlong is for those who have awakened (or are awakening) beyond the personal and cultural framework that shaped them and are opening to the vast mystery that seeks to unfold, within and without. It is designed to support those who find themselves in the “space between stories” as they become more adept in listening and responding to Life and its constant guidance. It is for those who have grown beyond peak experiences and seek to discover a more consistent and resilient way of being in their lives and communities.
