Retreats in Assisi, Italy
with David Nowe & Brenda Brisch
Weekly from March - November in 2017

This is a unique pilgrimage in the sacredness of this ancient hilltop town. Our Retreats are small-group retreats which offer an intimate one-of-a-kind experience honoring all faiths. For centuries people from all over the world have been coming to Assisi to feel the vibrant presence of peace. No experience necessary.
Our retreat leaders have been teaching for over 40 years. While sharing the spirit of Assisi, they lovingly guide heart centered meditation, self-enquiry, periods of silence, and meditative movement or yoga. As we bring this into our daily practices, our contemplative journey becomes especially powerful and memorable.
Life is an Offering
Spiritual Pilgrimage to Bali, Indonesia
with Ruth & Bruce Davis & Nicole Becker
January 28-February 4, 2018
The remote village and retreat center where we stay is surrounded by rice fields with a view to Mt Agung, the holiest mountain in Bali. Excursions to holy sites, teachers and sacred rituals.
A spiritual pilgrimage to Bali is an opportunity to experience a culture of great heart and spirituality. Our intention is to immerse ourselves fully in the sacred, discovering our own sacredness within. The Balinese teach us to offer everything from our heart and receive the flowers of peace from deep inside.
The Balinese have three principals that they live by; Keep balance between yourself and others, between yourself and nature and between yourself and God. By surrendering and returning to emptiness everyday,we stop mental activity. While meditating in the heart, we learn to embrace the love that radiates from within. The true life is lived from spacious love. Life arises out of love and returns to the eternal heart of love; with every breath, every day, every year and every lifetime.
