The point of being on earth is to be of and for Spirit, and to undertake spiritual growth. This is not a static process with a conclusion. It is one that continuously evolves. This retreat welcomes seekers from all walks and backgrounds who are well along in spiritual development and thirsting for more. Join us if you want more joy in your mystical growth.
At this retreat we embrace all spiritual practices that are open to sacred dance as a cultural phenomenon. As Anthony de Mello, F. David Martin, and other mystics from ancient cultures have explained, much communication with the higher power or higher self comes through sacred dance. This kind of knowing and awareness is sometimes overlooked. This knowing is linked with awareness and power from dance with spiritual growth processes. You don’t have to know how to dance. Along with sacred dancing, we’ll laugh, play, write, pray, meditate, and practice visioning with imagination. We will transform our lives deliberately and purposefully.
Presenter: Dr. Carla Stalling Walter
Dates: Arrive at 3 p.m. Friday, September 20–departing at 11 a.m. Monday, September 23.
Cost: $560 before August 6; $760 from August 7 and thereafter. There is no onsite registration for the retreat. Please contact us with questions if you need to mail a check to us for your registration. If you’d like to attend but you want to know about possible scholarships, please let us know.
