Deep Listening: Ancestral Connection as a Contemplative Path – A Weekend Retreat
March 15 - March 17
Theme: Deep Listening: Ancestral Connection as a Contemplative Path
“Walking, I am listening in a deeper way.
Suddenly, all my ancestors are behind me
Be still they say, watch and listen
You are the result of the love of thousands.”
Linda Hogan, Indigenous Poet
The wisdom of our ancestors of lineage and those of the land are available as resources to us in these evolutionary times. With embodied ritual and guided meditation we will enter Deep Silence on the sacred land of Dayspring and stay open to connection with those that went before us. We are here now because of them and the ways in which they allowed Divine Love and Life to flow through them.
You are invited to bring something for the altar that represents your people and/or the lands they hail from.
Leaders: mother and daughter, Rani and Anjuli George, are both Family and Nature Constellation facilitators, healing arts practitioners, and meditation group leaders. They are gratefully part of a multi-generational lineage of contemplatives, three generations of whom have been blessed to be held by the land of Dayspring.
Weekend retreats run Friday dinner through Sunday lunch. The silence begins Friday night after dinner when the leader opens the retreat and introduces the theme. The leader usually offers brief reflections with morning and evening prayers on Saturday. The silence ends after breakfast Sunday morning with a time of sharing and worship, followed by lunch and departure.
The cost for weekend retreats is $275. A $125 deposit is required to register.
Dinner on Friday at 7 pm is the first official gathering. You are welcome to arrive and settle in between 3:30 and 6:30 pm on Friday. The retreat will end by 2 pm on Sunday. Please plan to stay for the entire retreat.
