What we plant in the soil of contemplation we shall reap in the harvest of action.
Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul alike. --John Muir
Our work is the love of God. Our satisfaction lies in surrender to the divine embrace.
-- Jan Van Ruysbroeck
While different for each visitor, the retreat experience often includes personal reflection, silence and time in nature, spiritual guidance, creative expression, massage, and other healing work.
Love is the great work
though every heart is first an apprentice.
Happiness is the great work,
though every heart must first become a student
to one who really knows…about love.
Individual Private Retreat
Retreat is a time to awaken to your inner story, letting it open you to a larger, mythic story. It is a time to cultivate that which brings you more alive and to soften and release that which holds you back from embracing your basic goodness.
In the quiet, serene atmosphere of Spirit Mountain Retreat you begin to relax and come home to the natural world and your place in it. This is a time to deepen awareness and consciousness of the Divine Presence permeating all of life. Through practices such as meditation, dream work, music, art and journaling you may come to a greater appreciation of your soul’s journey, honoring it with compassion and gentleness.
Meeting for spiritual guidance while you are on retreat can also help guide your time of reflection and quiet.
Retreats can be scheduled for an overnight, during the week/weekend, and for longer periods of time. Spiritual guidance is available.
$95 per night includes housing and meals (see Facilities);
$40 per hour spiritual guidance
