I went everywhere with longing
in my eyes, until here
in my own house

I felt truth
Filling my sight.

Coming Home to Yourself: Embodied Mindfulness Retreat for Women
September 8-15, 2019
with Anne Cushman, Janice Gates, Kate Johnson & Jill Satterfield

With our busy lives, it is easy to disconnect from what we know will bring us deep spiritual nourishment. We forget who we are, why we’re here and what we truly value. Taking time to attend to our inner life can bring a new level of clarity and peace and guide us back to our own inner knowing. As the outer voices subside, we begin to remember what it means to live each moment authentically and from our hearts.

In this seven-night meditation retreat, we will dive deep into the practice of mindfulness through stillness, movement, silence and connection. Each day will be held in a container of silence supported by the tranquil and beautiful ambiance of Mt. Madonna, an intentional residential spiritual community in a yogic lineage that emphasizes selfless service, kindness, and respect for all of life. There will be periods of seated meditation, mindful yoga, walking meditation in nature, small group meetings with teachers, and teachings from the wisdom traditions woven throughout. We will include focused times each day to explore together what it means to awaken in each embodied moment of our often challenging, chaotic and beautifully sacred lives as women.

We are able to offer a wide range of options for accommodations at Mt. Madonna, a beautiful refuge in the redwoods on top of the Santa Cruz mountains, from camping to your own single room with private bath. Fee includes accommodations, delicious vegetarian meals featuring seasonal local produce and all teachers fees.
