“This is your chance to listen carefully.
Your whole life might depend on what you hear.”
~ Joyce Sutphen, from her poem “How to Listen“
Take a break this weekend and let the Silence speak, as we practice contemplative listening – with each other and the natural world – and speaking from the Heart.
This is not a silent retreat, but rather time spent practicing together in community. We will engage with a series of contemplative exercises rooted in Robert and Cheryl Sardello’s decades-long soul work that invite us into deep listening as spiritual practice. You do not need to identify as being “in recovery” to attend – the weekend is open to all who yearn to cultivate an inner life so that we may be of service in the world.
12-step practictioners might consider the weekend’s work an extension of 11th-step practices of prayer and meditation. This is an opportunity to enlarge the spiritual life through deep soul work with Silence and Heart. You do not need to identify as being “in recovery” to attend ~ the weekend is open to all who yearn to cultivate an inner life and build capacity to be of service in the world. There will also be time for rest and/or exploration of Seal Cove’s natural beauty.
**Arrive when you can** ~ we will have a casual light dinner and begin the short evening program around 7 pm. Cost: two nights in double room, $100-150 (total). Sliding scale: please inquire. Details and registration: www.alcyoncenter.org. Questions? Email Liz.
