  • Peace is a natural innate state of mind waiting for us to come back to it. Happiness is a butterfly which when pursued, is always just beyond our grasp, but which if you sit down quietly, may alight upon you.
    —Nathaniel Hawthorne

  • There Is Nothing Wrong With You

  • July 25 – August 1, 2020

    Inside each of us is a “persistent voice of discontent.” It is constantly critical of life, the world, and almost everything we say and do. As children, in order to survive, we learned to listen to this voice and believe what it says.

    At this retreat we look directly at how we are rejected and punished by the voices of self-hate and discover how to let that go. Through a variety of exercises and periods of group processing, participants gain a clearer perspective on how they live their lives and on how to find compassion for themselves and others.

    This work is challenging, joyous, fulfilling, scary, courageous, demanding, freeing, loving, kind, and compassionate-compassionate toward yourself and everyone you will ever know.

    “What could be more important than helping people reconnect with their intrinsic goodness? The love that arises within radiates out to reach all levels of society. This is the kind of work that makes the world a better place.” Nina, age 33, Physician/Scientist

    “This was probably the most valuable week I’ve ever spent…this work really gets to the heart of the matter – how is it that we make ourselves unhappy? It guides you to see it very clearly and apply the only possible solutions – self-awareness, love and compassion.” Lon Withers, age 49, Performing Arts.

    “It was a gift that has no equal. I feel blessed to have had this opportunity, and there is no doubt in my mind and in my heart that this world would be an oh-so-kinder place if everyone had the chance to experience this space of incredible acceptance and compassion.” Mary Ann Bailey, Age 53, Life Coach.
