at a private retreat center in the mountains of Mendocino, CA
with Jan Edl Stein, MFT

Sponsored by Holos Institute

sitting area Bell Valley

In the rolling hills of Mendocino County, California, come taste stillness and re-member your embodied self.   This 3 night/4 day retreat is focused on the returning to our senses, discovering a world ensouled as we delve into our own inner landscapes and rest our awareness in the place where spirit meets matter. This is a retreat where an inquiry into the nature of the self is found in the mirror of nature.

We will call upon contemplative practices, mindfulness meditation, prayer, traditional shamanic journeys, nature -based meditations (both stillness and movement) and some earth-based ritual.  There will be sharing in mindful council and holding a space for dreamtime inquiry.  We will invite our selves to see the sacredness of the natural world and welcome that moment when we are apprehended by elements of the natural world and may dialog with a world ensouled.  The core of the practice will be contained in the journeys into our inner landscapes where we can form deep connection with allies who can inform our actions and perceptions in the outer landscapes of our lives.
There will be solo contemplative time on the land completed with council style sharing.

This retreat will be of value to those interested in personal regeneration, enhanced creativity and wellness, and heightened spiritual awareness. It is an excellent adjunct to therapy, as well as a powerful method of self-care for helping professionals.  Self-care is encouraged during the retreat. This retreat is not a process of psychotherapy but may participants will most likely have a deep, insightful, or transformative experience.
