The Inspired Life: Cultivating Peace, Meaning and Joy in Everyday Life

Sep 27 - 29, 2019 Begins in 1 month
with Kelly Boys & Rich Fernandez

This retreat is based on the simple principle that sources of inspiration, meaning and joy reside deeply within each one of us, and that the work of our life time is to become fully conscious of what is most alive within ourselves — and then act on it.

Drawing from a wide range of disciplines including neuroscience, psychology, business, education, contemplative and movement traditions, we will make time for stillness and reflection and also dynamic envisioning and integration of insights as we explore the theme of fulfillment and thriving in everyday life.


Grounded in Gratitude: A Week of Stillness, Presence and Inner Listening

Nov 24 - 29, 2019 Begins in 3 months
with Kelly Boys

In this retreat we will slow down, pause and listen deeply to what is most real and alive in our lives. When we are busy and overwhelmed, we miss the transformative power that listening with presence offers us. Through sitting meditation, yoga nidra (lying-down guided relaxation and inquiry practice), journaling, simple dyad exercises and group dialogues we will reconnect with an inner stillness, ground in a felt sense of gratitude and discover what may benefit from kind, loving attention in our lives.



We offer a rich and varied integral learning environment devoted to cultivating deep change in self and society.
