Radical Consciousness Retreat
A Diverse and Powerful Experience

Radical Consciousness Retreat
"What worked on this retreat? Everything!"

"This retreat exceeded all expectations. The teachers' mastery helped me learn about meditation and myself."

"Exquisite! What genuine, loving human beings! Their deep and broad knowledge of meditation practices from across multiple spiritual domains provides a supportive space that encourages me to find comfort in choosing my own path."

"I definitely felt a shift - grounded and present"

Join us in this heart-expanding 3.5 day retreat designed to transform your mind, body, emotions and spirit by experiencing a blend of conscious ascension tools and emotional transformation techniques . . . all while nestled in a quiet, country valley, surrounded by soul-inspiring Rocky Mountain vistas and vibrant Fall color!  Participants will feel nourished exploring a rich tapestry of modalities that honor many meditation traditions (silent, moving, guided and music), gentle restorative yoga, qi gong, quantum sound baths, nature outings, and heart-healing with horses!
Our retreat speaks to those whom . . . sincerely desire to deepen and expand their spiritual practices . . . are open to experiencing feelings of connectedness, inner-stillness, an open-heart, presence, a simple sense of joy, cleared brain noise, clarity and gratitude . . . and are excited to gain practical tools for living well, and igniting a fresh life perspective.

You will be provided the opportunity to dramatically and positively shift your life as you receive illuminating insights that can really change EVERYTHING!  
This multi-sensory retreat is co-led by three seasoned practitioners who weave together a unique blend of activities offering a healthy balance of introspection, movement, authentic heart connection, and spiritual re-alignment with nature and all sentient beings.  Below is a sampling of our retreat menu: - A variety of meditation instruction and practices (e.g., concentration, inquiry, manifestation, awareness, loving kindness)  -  Emotional exercises -  Voice Dialog: a method for strengthening the center by giving inner voices their space -  The Demartini Method�: a tool for dissolving emotional charges  -  Mondo Zen�: a dialectic practice of deepening consciousness through Zen Koans -  Conscious embodiment practices -  Gentle Restorative Yoga: centering of the breath & body, aligning the physical & mental -  Qi Gong: an ancient form of movement meditation -  Daison: Brief, informal, face-to-face interviews with Kensho Len Silverson -  Quantum Vibrational Sound Baths with crystal chalices and Tibetan singing bowls -  Equine Assisted Heart-Healing to help foster authentic, emotional congruence

Writing to Awaken
Memoir as a Spiritual Practice 

Memoir as a Spiritual Practice
We each have our own story, a personal myth constructed from the content life presents us. By questioning our connections to this narrative, we come to realize that we are not our stories. This opens the door for change and transformation.

On May 10-May 15, 2020, join us for Memoir as a Spiritual Practice Retreat with instructor, guide and acclaimed author Mark Matousek. We will spend the day exploring personal stories as pathways to wisdom and self-encounter. When we learn to see the mythic dimension of our struggles, losses, triumphs, and transformations, we gain insight into our spiritual progress - the state of our soul - and what is asking for deeper attention. 

Writing To Awaken workshops offer an intimate exploration of personal identity through expressive writing. Using targeted questions, radical truth-telling, and self-inquiry, you will explore the narratives of your life, writing honestly about your greatest challenges, deepest yearnings, secret wounds, hidden gifts, and roads less traveled. You'll gain a deeper understanding of your storytelling self and move toward a more liberated, authentic, and awakened life. Mark's unique, compassionate teaching style creates a welcoming atmosphere for this deeply transformative work. Designed for writers of all levels, Writing To Awaken will prompt insight, spiritual wisdom, and fresh possibilities.
Mark Matousek, a 20-year student of Buddhism, is the author of two acclaimed memoirs: Sex Death Enlightenment and The Boy He Left Behind, and When You're Falling, Dive: Lessons in the Art of Living and Ethical Wisdom: What Makes Us Good.

Reflection & Celebration
A Retreat for Gay Men

Gay Mens Spirituality Retreat
We will reflect upon our journeys as gay men in the context of our humanity, sexuality, faith and spirituality.  We will consider together what it means to be gay men in 2019 and we will take time to recall and honor those who have helped us along the way.  Join us for times of conversation, laughter and community. There will be time to enjoy the natural beauty of the Kirkridge mountainside and the nearby Columcille sanctuary. Some of us have just come out, some of us have been out for a long time; we are single, married, older and younger: we are from small towns and big cities - we come together as brothers of faith, heart and spirituality.
