At this retreat women will experience the empowering movement from the separate self to interconnection and from overwhelm into action for the sake of life on Earth.

Many women care deeply about environmental destruction and social injustice but feel overwhelmed by the magnitude of world problems. We can not and need not face all of this alone.

Using teachings and exercises, developed by Joanna Macy, as well as meditation,we will discover the power of facing our feelings for the Earth together. Sharing our grief, anger and fear reveals our mutual belonging in the web of life and frees our power to respond.

In Sangha (community ) we are uplifted as we wake up together, arm in arm. The diverse gathering of women at this retreat will be supported to form regional sanghas and encouraged to continue meeting long after the retreat ends.

We will be inspired to awaken together in order to benefit all beings as we learn about 'Liberation Dharma'. This teaching includes gifts for our time from the revolutionary earliest Buddhist communities in India and from current engaged Buddhism.

Together will learn to embrace this time of Great Unraveling - Great Turning as a challenge which we are fully capable of meeting and as a privilege in which we can take joy.

Silent mornings will be for instruction and practice of mindfulness meditation. Afternoons will be experiential teachings with Joanna. Silent evenings will include sangha building, loving-kindness meditation, and/or Dharma teachings, and more silent meditation. Small groups will be offered by Dharma teachers to support opening and understanding.

Please be aware that this is a workshop-style retreat that will include some periods of silence and some periods of speaking. During the afternoon sessions Joanna Macy will guide interactive exercises. Some exercises will be emotionally evocative as we learn to face and respond to the pain and beauty of our world.

Women of all ages, races, classes and abilities are welcome in our inclusive circle. No previous meditation experience needed.

Joanna Macy is a living treasure. A Dharma scholar and practitioner, at 88 she is blazing in clarity, passion, and the rare gift to inspire us to move from despair into empowered action for the earth.

Spirit Rock extends a special invitation to young adults (age 18-26) who wish to attend this retreat at a rate of $35 per night, on a first come, first serve basis. A limited number of special rates are available, please apply early.

Sacred Sound + Meditation Retreat - Jennifer Berezan/Erin Treat
INFO

Start time: 4:00 pm on Monday, August 28, 2017

August 28 to September 1, 2017

The retreat will combine two ancient spiritual practices–meditation and music–as a path to opening one’s heart and uncovering one’s true nature. There will be a progressive training, with guided instruction, in the fundamentals of mindfulness meditation, including periods of sitting and walking meditation. Woven throughout the meditation practice, participants will engage in a wide range of musical experiences, from traditional and contemporary traditions, including sessions of chant, song, and deep listening. The meditation practice and musical experience are all designed to create equanimity, joy, and healing, and both will be offered in a safe, lighthearted, and sacred environment. Each afternoon will be spent practicing sitting and walking meditation in the woods, as well as chanting and sacred sound, with guided walks in the beauty of the old growth La Manga forest surrounding the ranch.

This retreat is suitable for all, including those new to the practice of meditation or music!

Please join me this winter for a song, snow, and aurora borealis sky retreat in the Yukon Territory.

The Canadian north is blessed by pristine wilderness and some of the world's most beautiful aurora displays. Based at the warm and cozy Sundog Retreat we will gather for meals, meditation, song, movement and silence. In the evenings we will keep watch for the dance of the northern lights and when the sky is dark we will stargaze, sing and enjoy outdoor fires. We'll have the opportunity to explore the land on snowshoes and the spectacular mountains on a dog mushing adventure!

Spaces are limited so please let me know asap if you'd like to join us.

"There's just one thing I want to see before I die
The lights of an aurora borealis sky"

I hope you can join us!
Jennifer
