$400 private, $350 shared
Retreat is full–please email email@example.com
Spring bursts into vibrant fullness in mid-May. Locust trees bloom the air with fragrance, every tree and shrub is showing off, and the river rushes by, lapping the high rocks.
It’s a perfect time for Divine Reading.
Traditionally Lectio Divina is the practice of reading, meditating, praying on, and contemplating the same scripture, usually three times, allowing meaning to arrive, sink, and settle.
We will enter Lectio with shared practices and the geography of the Haven. Together we’ll explore specific asana poses and sequences, beautiful poetry, and music. On your own you’ll sit with the same tree, rock on the river, flowering beauty, or anything that invites you. All three times each—to read it, meditate, pray, and contemplate.
Everyone is welcome—this theme knows no levels or experience. We’ll build on asana and meditation basics with guided practice, group support, and ample free time to practice, explore, integrate, and relax. The only requirement is to bring regard, curiosity, and intention.
The weekend will be nourished by simple, Haven-harvested meals made by Brandy Henson. Retreat fee includes all meals Friday dinner through Monday breakfast.
Please arrive Friday between 4pm and 5pm Mountain Standard Time. We close Sunday afternoon with lunch and appreciations. We encourage guests to stay through Sunday night to quietly integrate the weekend and enjoy the Haven.
