The mystery is that
whoever shows up
when we dare to give
has exactly what we need
hidden in their trouble.

Through our messy human struggle, we learn, over time, to inhabit our kinships on Earth. Once under our differences, we can be who we are everywhere and clear a path to what matters. Through each trial and blessing we unfold within a second womb, meant to incubate our better angel. This second womb is an experiential one that, through the labor of a lifetime, births the soul on Earth. This six-day retreat delves into that process of unfolding in its mystery, difficulty, and inevitability.

During our time together, we will explore the archetypal passages we all face such as: enduring our walk in the world, discovering our true inheritance, widening our circle, living in the open, and helping each other stay awake.

By gathering for six days, there is time to go below the noise of the world and the noise of our minds, time to let what lives within out, and to let our connections with each other and the world deepen. Through meditation, journaling, deep listening, storytelling, poetry, metaphor, and dialogue, we will try to surface the threads of resilience that keep us tender and strong.

It seems the purpose of suffering is to exhaust us of our differences, and the purpose of love is to awaken us to how we’re at heart the same. Then, we discover that the temple is the world. Still, every life, every generation, every age takes its turn at pushing each other away, only to be loved and worn back to the one tribe we belong to. This seems even more relevant in our tense, modern world. For there is no they. We are they. We are each other. And there’s a Unity that always waits below our righteousness and insistence that we know the way. —MN
