autumn leaves

The universe is a continuous web. Touch it at any point and the whole web quivers.
~Stanley Kunitz

In our daily life, we breathe, but we forget that we’re breathing.

We bring our attention to our in-breath and our out-breath.

Suddenly, we bring our body and our mind fully present in the here and now, and we smile.

~Thich Nhat Hanh

 

 

Your invitation to follow the breath immediately set the tone for quiet and reflection. I particularly enjoyed listening to the many natural sounds that surround Spirit Mountain and, by stopping and listening, I was able to feel myself a part of it all.
~Paul Zak

 

Many thanks dear friends for another wonderful weekend! My deepest gratitude and heartfelt love to you for the beautiful space you have created. Truly a treasure!

 

 

If you would have balance and order within, do one small thing at the same time each day with gratitude in your heart…
~Renée Miller

 

 

 

 

Courage and contentment are simply manifestations of the divine perfection that already exists with us all.
~Gurumayi Chidvilasananda

 

 

 

 

Try not to change the world.
You will fail.
Try to love the world.
Lo, the world is changed.
Changed forever.

~Sri Chinmoy

Always We Begin Again: A Woman's Writing Workshop of Discovery

Though your destination is not yet clear

Spirit Mountain Retreat is an ideal setting for quiet contemplation and an intimate gathering of circle unlike any other in Southern California.

Through simple and easy writing exercises developed by Katya Williamson, MFA, author of "Bringing the Soul Back Home: Writing in the New Consciousness" and "Awakening in Avebury: A Woman's Call to Pilgrimage," that began while she was a Writer-in-residence for three summers in Yellowstone National Park, you will find both new facets of your identity and your unique writing style.

Part 1 The Invisible Systems
Part 2 The Rise in Power of Women
This workshop is intended for women (and men who support their power) who are currently ages 30 through 75 and all those women who believed their time of power had passed them by.
Download Workshop Information (pdf)

Part One will focus on the Invisible Systems that exist in the Universe and will include an in-depth seminar on the deeper meaning of ancient sciences that includes color, sounds, astrological energy packages, life between and after death, and more.

Part Two will focus on The Rise in Power of Women, particularly those of middle-age. Participants will gain an understanding on how to prepare for the new phase of societal power and the importance of 2024. Every 20 years brings about a major shift in Feng Shui energies that has powerful influences upon people and planetary trends. Deeper aspects of these 20-year cycles are described in ancient teachings, and in the I Ching, also called the Book of Changes. In reality, these shifts in life force commence and can be felt during the 20 years prior to reaching their most concentrated form—a period of preparation. In a few short years, we will enter Period 9, which is represented by the “middle daughter” and middle-aged women. Energies will shift to the feminine, and middle-aged women will be boosted into power.Gail will guide us through the effects of these invisible systems and how they impact the enormous rise in the power of women from 2024 to 2044.

Date: May 5, 2018
Time:
9:30 am to 4:00 pm
Fee: $125 - lunch included. After April 28th - $145
Full payment due at registration. No refunds after April 28th.

Gail Minogue, author of Divine Design - How You Created the Life You Are Living, is a Los Angeles professional in the symbolic relationship of numbers to our life experience.
