Retreat 1, Inside the Miracle, Pine Manor, Southern CA

April 1, 2016 - April 3, 2016


Early bird special (by March 1): $625
Regular registration:  $695.   

This is the first of two workshops being held back-to-back. The other workshop will fall the following weekend, April 8-10. Contact Gail Warner at 949-552-1633 to discuss your preference.

This weekend-long workshop is based on Mark Nepo’s new book, Inside the Miracle. This workshop is an invitation to be in relationship with deep and life-giving material. In this hands-on, hearts-on session, Mark will explore the passages that open us and the tools that help us meet the difficulties that life brings us. He will discuss topics such as the sanctity of experience, things that hearten and dishearten, our call to endure and endear, and the arts of reverence.

The point of experience is not to escape life but to live it. During this weekend, we will explore and unpack questions, such as: How can we meet life where we are? Who and what do we listen to along the way? How do we listen to life and not to what life does to us, when suffering and loss meet us at every turn? How do we make sense of our experience?

Using ancient and contemporary stories, poetry, journaling, and dialogue, Mark will delve into what it means to be touched by fear and pain, and how we might access or vulnerability and resilience. He will unfold what it means to be transformed by what we go through, and how to access our inner resources for learning, growing, and healing. rentgirls.ch

“With a steadfast belief in our aliveness, I hope what we explore together will help you meet the transformation that waits in however you’re being forged.”

—Mark Nepo
