A day of retreat where nature mirrors our inner landscape
with Jan Edl Stein, MFT
3 CEUs available for MFTs, LPCCs, LCSWs
This retreat is one of a long series of seasonal retreats. These seasonally offered retreats are a day of renewal and rediscovery, as we open ourselves to the land around us in addition to the landscapes within us. This is a deeply experiential daylong retreat for the restoration of health, psyche, and spirit, offering a renewal of the soul’s intention and a re-connection with the elements of nature that support us. We will slow down and take in the beauty that surrounds us and let nature reflect the shapes and patterns that are held in the psyche. The day is a combination of indoor experiences that involves guided meditation and inner (drum-lead) journey process and outdoor, land-based contemplative practices. The experience as a whole is an embodied example of eco-therapy. An optional lunchtime didactic process that explores the ecotherapy theory and process is included for those who attend for CEUs.
Each retreat day reflects themes of the season in the meditations, journeys and our approach to the elements we discover in nature. No previous experience is necessary.
The retreat takes place in the beautiful setting of Green Gulch Farm and Zen Center, with its splendid coastal range flora, meandering gardens, Japanese architecture, and easy walk to the beach. An organic, vegetarian lunch (included in registration fee) is offered to the group in the dining hall. Retreat fees include lunch and refreshments.
The SUMMER SOLSTICE retreat resides in the themes of fullness, a celebration of the life force both within and without, and deep joy and gratitude for the natural world.
