April 4 - 9 | 2018
A five-day journey of deep rest, radical self-compassion, and returning home
These days, it’s clear that a full-spectrum path of spirituality and healing must address multiple dimensions of what it means to be an open, awake, and compassionate human being. Meditation, emotional healing, psychological work, relational maturity, and being grounded in the body are all required to live lives of freedom, connectedness, and presence. Even if we have a profound spiritual realization, but the fruits of that realization do not infuse the relative world of our body, emotions, relationships, and work in the world, we sense something is missing.
From April 4-9, we will gather in beautiful Loveland, Colorado, where we will engage an in-depth journey of nondual spirituality and meditation; guidance and support in shadow work, emotional healing and discovering the tantra of everyday life; plus gentle movement and embodied mindfulness practices, all in the context of a grounded awareness which does not seek to “fix” us, but celebrates the mystery and sacredness that we already are. Together we will explore the mysteries of both being and becoming, acceptance and change, deep rest and a full embrace of life.
During the course of the retreat, each morning you will rest in nondual spaciousness and presence with international author and spiritual teacher Jeff Foster; in the afternoon you will explore the alchemy of psychological and emotional integration with psychotherapist and author Matt Licata, PhD; and prior to the evening session, you will enjoy somatic-based mindfulness practices with author and mindfuless trainer to the United Nations and Google, Kelly Boys.
At the conclusion of each day, in the evening there will be a dialogue between Matt and Jeff, where they will explore the ground of a loving, embodied, nondual presence—the place where spirituality and therapy meet, the Home we never leave—and how the divine expresses itself in the chaotic, sweet, glorious mess of our ordinary lives.
