October 25 - 28, 2002

Cost:  $250 double occupancy, $310 single

The fall season is a time of letting go.  We will examine how we can use this

season as way of reflecting on the transitions in our lives, honouring our gifts, accepting where we are and letting go of what we need to.  Connecting with spirit is a way of opening to grace in our lives.  This facilitates our ability to surrender.  The retreat will include rituals, chanting, sharing, yoga, breathwork and meditation, periods of silence and time for reflection. 

Location: on Cortes Island

in Bluff house and Raven on the Hollyhock property.

Next Cortes Island retreat tentatively scheduled for October 2003
