Heart of Inquiry
An Online Continuum Exploration
Susan Harper with Rebecca Lawson

“The marvelous thing about a good question
is that it shapes our identity
as much by the asking as it does
by the answering.” David Whyte

In challenging times like these we need inquiry to go beyond the familiar, to dissolve spells of conditioning, to shed old skins of meaning that have grown too tight, and to follow the longing of our soul. The soul knows how to find its own way. Awaken courage to simmer in the tension of all that is paradoxical and unknown—the creative alchemy that unfolds the pathless path.


Sounding and Somatic Inquiry – Sense intrinsic movements and the fluid forces of creation that guide healing and creative unfolding.
Perceptive Inquiry – Consider “how” you see and free your perceptive dialogue with the living phenomena of life.
Relational Inquiry – Explore being simultaneously with yourself AND with another.

We discern the life-enhancing questions that, as David Whyte says, “can make or unmake a life ... questions that have no right to go away".

What do you wholeheartedly love?
What support is needed to live a courageous life informed by core values?
What is the conversation your soul is here to have?

With heart-based imagination we discover an adventurous soulful embodied engagement that meets the times and occasions in which we live. Come dare to love, weep, laugh, and meet the splendor and 'terrible beauty' that the river of life delivers. 

Each day we will have two Zoom sessions. There will be inspirational talks, experiential instructions. Susan or Rebecca will guide meditative, perceptual explorations, and an extended Continuum dive (no need to look at a screen.) There will be time for questions and answers to refine the process of our soulful inquiry and for sharing our experiences. We will also make use of breakout rooms for paired exercises and smaller group dialogues.

We are pleased to have Continuum teachers Robin Becker, Emma Destrubé, Kori Tolbert and Erin Butterworth assisting in this retreat.

What do I need to take an online class? 
We will use a platform called Zoom. You’ll need a computer, ipad or iphone, and a good internet connection

  • Download the latest Zoom app: https://zoom.us/download. It is painless, fast, and free.
  • If you have a computer, choose that over the iPad or iPhone, not only will the sound be better but also you can interact more and see more of others.
  • For better sound quality, connect to an external speaker.

How do I join online?
You will receive a confirmation email after you pay for the retreat. The Zoom information will be emailed to you closer in time to the retreat. Please do not share this link and Zoom information with anyone else since we want to ensure that the people who are registering for the class will be able to attend.
