October 26 – 28, 2018
Mavens’ Haven, Lucile, ID
with Tracey Kindall
The longer nights of autumn slow our natural rhythms and invite us to surrender to our own restoration. We will gather at the Haven for gentle sessions of meditation and asana practice, guided by inspiring wisdom traditions. We will explore the Buddhist concept of Paticca Samuppada, “dependent co-arising,” and the spiritual ecology inherent in Buddhist scholar Joanna Macy’s “work that reconnects.” We will also be inspired by the restorative tales and philosophies of other cultures as we work to “re-story” and heal. We hope you will join us during this time of growing darkness to plant a seed of hope deep within your imagination and spirit.
Our weekend will be nourished by simple, homemade meals using Haven fall harvests, dairy from 7U Ranch in Lucile, and chicken from the Matthews Family Farm in Weiser.
Retreat fee of $290 includes private accommodation and all meals Friday dinner through Monday breakfast. View accommodations here.
Please arrive Friday between 4pm and 5pm Mountain Standard Time. We will close the retreat Sunday afternoon with lunch and Appreciations, though we encourage guests to stay through Sunday night to quietly integrate the weekend and enjoy the Haven.
