Retreat Theme/Focus for 2020:
Designing A Life of Intention, Integrity & Wholeness:
We are very honored and excited this year to be using the book, The Monk Manifesto, By Christine Valters Paintner, as a template to inspire and encourage us on this retreat. The Monk Manifesto is a specific set of tools and principles for living a compassionate, creative, and contemplative life. This is a life that is not set apart from the beauty and troubles of the world, but a life that is an integral and important part of it. How can we live each day in a way that is in harmony with ourselves, each other and our planet, in the very immediacy of our precious lives?
Are you seeking:
* Greater work/ life balance
* Clarity on your soul's path & life's purpose
* A strong container of support & connection
* Honoring your gifts and bringing them forth into the world
* Accountability to follow-through on your visions/ dreams
* A way to fully bring yourself & offerings into the world, while also having time for fun, play, connection, ease and JOY...???
Then this this might be the perfect retreat for you!
Each day of this powerful retreat, we will explore one or two of the Monk Manifesto Principles and see how they resonate for us personally and collectively. We will weave these dynamic principles into our yoga practices, meditations, walks and group discussions. On our final day, you will be invited to create your own personal manifesto that aligns deeply with your soul. Although we highly recommend that you purchase the book, you are certainly not required to. Explore the Monk Manifesto online or purchase the book here:
