Join Holos Institute's director, Jan Edl Stein, MFT, at Green Gulch Farm and Zen Center for a day retreat of celebration and contemplation of the Summer Solstice as we explore the themes of fullness, creativity and the emergence our gifts/Self.
This particular retreat day tends to fill to capacity so please register early to reserve your spot!
This one of a series of ongoing retreats at Green Gulch offered at the changing of each season as we acknowledge the equinox and solstices along with all that that means to both the outer nature and inner psyche.
These seasonally offered retreats are a day of renewal and rediscovery, as we open ourselves to the land around us in addition to the landscapes within us. This is a deeply experiential daylong retreat for restoration of health, psyche and spirit, offering a renewal of the soul’s intention and a re-connection with the elements of nature that support us. We will slow down and take in the beauty that surrounds us and let nature reflect the shapes and patterns that are held in the psyche.
The day is a combination of indoor experiences that involves guided meditation with contemplation of the theme of the season along with an inner journey process and outdoor, land-based contemplative practices. The experience as a whole is an embodied example of eco-therapy. Each retreat day reflects themes of the season in the meditations, journeys and our approach to the elements we discover in nature.
No previous experience is necessary - the day is gently guided throughout
The retreat takes place in the beautiful setting of Green Gulch Farm and Zen Center, with its splendid coastal range flora, meandering gardens, Japanese architecture, and easy walk to the beach. An organic, vegetarian lunch (included in registration fee) is offered to the group in the dining hall. The group is always a comfortable, safe place to let down where new faces are always welcomed.
Retreat fees include lunch and refreshments.
