Our hearts know it, because we have seen it, experienced glimpses of what life and the world could be. Yet as individuals and a society, we carry habits and programs of the old and dying Story of Separation. We cannot easily know how to get from here to there; often, we doubt what we have seen. This retreat is a deprogramming from the old story and an immersion in a new (and ancient) story. It crystallizes a next step toward the world we know is possible. It engages a great power within you, and it will inspire a hope that comprehends the full situation on this planet.
A deep part of us knows that the earth climate is intimately connected to the political climate, social climate and spiritual climate. This weekend offers a radical take on earth healing that totally rewrites the climate narrative. This is not just an ideas workshop — be prepared to do inner work, to release the despair narrative and to embrace an activated, empowered hope for planetary healing.
