“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it … and love them.”  - Rumi

The truth is that we are all connected. Our perception, often, is that we are alone. 

We long to feel the connection that is the truth of our existence.

We are here to rediscover the truth of our connection which is our home.

You are invited to join this experience of individual, dyadic, and group meditation to “seek and find the barriers within yourself, and love them.” As we see clearly the hurt and hardened layers, and love them, they begin to fall away, opening us to the possibility of deeper, more authentic connection. The retreat will include experiences that invite deep dives into the barriers that separate us, and time and space to hold those barriers skillfully and tenderly, both alone and in the group context.

This is a deepening practice retreat for those who have an established awareness practice and an ability to stay with emotion. If you would like to attend one of these retreats, please schedule a no-fee appointment here:
