Presented by Renée Silvus, M.A., Luminaire
Co-facilitation with Charlotte Dietz

The beautiful spring in Lucile invites us to recharge.  Warm days, refreshing canyon breezes, budding trees, an emerging garden.

Join us for a weekend of shared and solitary meditation nourished by simple and organic meals.

To meditate is “to bring attention.”  We will weave teachings from Renée’s studies and lineage in India with common forms such as visualization and prayer.  We will practice less common and powerful forms such as tonglen and pranayama.

Retreat fee of $85 one day or $150 two days includes all meals Friday dinner through Monday breakfast.  A variety of unique lodging options are available.

Please arrive Friday between 4pm and 6pm MST to get settled.  A light dinner will be available on buffet from 5pm-7pm.  We will open the retreat at 7:30 pm MST and close Sunday at 2:30 pm.  You are invited to stay Sunday night to quietly integrate the weekend and enjoy the Haven. Sunday dinner and Monday breakfast will be provided.

About Charlotte

93bCharlotte Dietz lives by her imagination and her heart.  She loves encouraging and sparking magic in others, reminding them that they are perfect and they are love.  On this Earth, Charlotte’s favorite place is the water, and she can be found there most days meditating or swimming.  She began swimming at a young age, and found it the most peaceful place, for the entire world slows down while she is underwater longer, deeper, working on being more comfortable and more soft with each visit.  Meditation works similar magic.  It enables people to connect to their source, their life force energy, and their upper chakras, and Charlotte loves to share the idea that anything that comes in is valid and true if it feels good and you want to accept it.  She has been a teacher her whole life, and from a very young age children in the neighborhood would gravitate toward her because she knew the most fun things to do!  She has taught early childhood education, swimming, many sports and many creative endeavors, and now offers her facilitating talents for meditation as well. She is also a Reiki Master and lover of this journey called life.
