The theme of this retreat is awakening joy. We will examine how our minds work and calm our nervous systems. We will follow a balanced schedule of meditation, inner reflection, gentle yoga movement and deep rest. We will journal our responses to inquiry sessions, express ourselves through art, have thoughtful discussions and make friends with inner stillness. To ensure deep peaceful rest there is plenty of free time for walking, contemplation and resting. Throughout the retreat, outside of guided group discussions and visiting time after lunch, we maintain silence to facilitate deep transformation.
Art Therapy, Mindfulness Practice,
The retreat presents a non-dogmatic approach of Eastern Spiritual Practices, Western Brain Science and Supportive Community.
We have combined the most transformative spiritual practices to create a powerful spiritual and psychological container for connecting into the inner wellspring of true happiness and peace.
The retreats are non-denominational in presentation and open to all that are interested. Our past retreats have been attended by people from many faiths i.e. Christian, Buddhist, Jewish, Muslim, Native American, Atheist, etc.
The retreat center lodge overlooks a tranquil lake surrounded by native oak-covered hills. The facility is a modern conference center with hotel style rooms. Each room has two twin beds and a private bathroom. Other than service animals, pets are not allowed.
We offer a limited number of partial work scholarships to retreats for those who need financial assistance.
For individuals canceling their attendance for an upcoming retreat the fees are as follows: 31 days or more prior to retreat, $30 cancellation fee. 14-30 days prior to the retreat, $60 fee. Less than 14 days prior to the retreat, no refund.
Our retreats at St Crispin's’s are limited to a total of 32 people and we turn away applicants when the rooms are sold out. Fourteen days before the retreat we give our final participant counts to the staff at St Crispin’s and they order food for the entire retreat.
It is in your best interest to be certain of your intention before registering for a retreat.
