“Into the Mystic” Retreats
“Mystic” is the term often used to refer to those who have devoted their lives to this inner experience of God, truth, joy, and peace. It is an expression that is non-dualistic. It is the realization that the Kingdom of Heaven is indeed within, and that each one of us has the capacity and grace to experience it. These retreats are devoted to the expression of that divinity, and we honor those whom feel called to join us in this experience. We would like to encourage you to share your inspiration and expression during the retreat. As the flower was created to bloom, so are we created to open and expand in our natural state of divine beauty. This retreat is just another sign post to lead you to the kingdom within–to an experience that is not only possible, but necessary.
A 7-day retreat at the Monastery gives one the opportunity to experience an inner shift. As the day-to-day routine of life is put on the back burner of the mind, one is able to access and nurture the call of the heart. The 7-day retreat acts as a support for getting in touch with this heartfelt experience. Through sessions based on Jesus’ original teachings of true forgiveness and love, one is released from the limiting beliefs of burden and pain. Through teaching sessions, inspirational movies, music, poetry, and connecting deeply with others, the heart opens to an authentic experience of Divine Love.
Month-Long Silent Retreat
The month-long silent retreat is an opportunity to live in community with devoted brothers and sisters from around the world who are committed to Awakening, while sharing in a deep experience of silence and inner listening. It is an invitation to deepen our sense of trust in Spirit, and rest in the innocence and joy of the Spirit. The retreat will include opportunities for intimate conversations in the sanctuary with the Messengers of Peace, as well as Spirit-inspired sessions such as metaphysical movies, poetry, and guided meditations. These sessions are optional and are provided as a gentle support for the release of blocks to the experience of our True Self. Arrangements can also be made for shorter stays.
