Radiance in Reciprocity: A Nature Meditation Retreat / June 9-11, 2023

The Earth calls us to reciprocity.” – Robin Wall-Kimmerer

What happens when we choose to live in natural currents of reciprocity? Radiance in Reciprocity is an invitation to immerse yourself into a supported, sensory exploration of this query.

Through gentle, contemplative practices – centering reverence, attention, compassion, rest and awe — we will spend our weekend together attuning to the abundance of intelligence and beauty living around and within. As we do, we will practice opening ourselves more fully to the presence of radiance— a natural, luminous and nourishing force that honors the gifts as well as the responsibilities of interconnection.

Sensory perception is this ongoing interweavement: the terrain enters us only to the extent that we allow ourselves to be taken up with that terrain.” – David Abram

Radiance in Reciprocity is being held at Coastal Mountain Sport Haus, a small, family-operated, agro-retreat center in Oregon’s beautiful Coastal Range, about 75 minutes from Portland.

This retreat will include: lodging Friday and Saturday night (ranging from single rooms to camping); delicious, vegetarian meals that are primarily locally-sourced; guided meditations and eco-dharma talks; and full access to the retreat grounds which feature a wooded trail, rolling meadow, pear orchard, outdoor soaking pool, river access and several options for personal contemplation. (Weather permitting, we may also enjoy evening campfires.)

REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN! Register by 2/28 for early bird pricing.  Group size is limited to 12 people. I am excited to share that a generous patron has created a substantial scholarship fund specifically for this retreat.

Yoga Nidra

The practice of Yoga Nidra offers an effective and sweet way to bring kindness to our nervous system while tapping into our body’s innate capacity to self-heal and restore. Through a process of supported and guided relaxation we’ll release accumulated tension (physical, emotional and spiritual.) In doing so, we’ll cultivate the state of Yoga Nidra, a state of consciousness that allows us to rest in beneficial theta brain waves. This both activates our body’s natural healing capacities and allows us direct access to our creative and compassion-filled inner wisdom. All warmly welcome, no prior experience needed. (Click here for suggestions on props and set-up.) 

Note: Yoga Nidra will be on winter break December 20th – 27th; it will resume January 3rd.

Tuesdays, 5:30 – 6:30pm PST, online. Drop-In ($15) or sliding scale Membership ($15-$36-$60/month.) Note: Yoga Nidra Memberships include access to all livestream Yoga Nidra classes + the Community Library featuring guided meditations and other resources. If you need to pay a different rate, or simply could benefit from a free class, please email me.
