If you’ve been curious about the gifts of Silence, this is a great opportunity to get a taste. Our Silent Retreat will include seven short teachings, based on our own Body & Soul curriculum and Deepak Chopra’s Seven Spiritual Laws of Success. These teachings point to deep spiritual principles that help us realize our full potential in practical terms.
Set yourself up for a prosperous year in every way.
9-9:15am Welcome & Orientation Together we establish our sitting space and set intentions for the day.
9:15-9:30 Teaching: The Law of Pure Potentiality When we feel and realize that our true Self is connected to the Source of all creation, we open ourselves to infinite abundance.
9:30-10am Silent Meditation Together, we sit in silence.
10-10:15am Teaching: The Law of Giving & Receiving Giving and receiving are different aspects of the energy flow of the universe. In our willingness to give that which we seek, we keep abundance circulating in our lives.
10:15-10:45am Silent Meditation Together, we sit in silence.
10:45-11am Teaching: The Law of Karma (Cause and Effect) Every action has an equal and opposite reaction. We sow what we reap. The more we witness how this law operates in our daily actions and attitudes, the more we live with empowered freedom.
11-11:30 Silent Meditation Together, we sit in silence.
11:30-12:00 Lunch Together, we share a simple meal in mindfulness and gratitude.
12:00-12:10 Teaching: The Law of Least Effort Nature's intelligence is in its alignment with exactly what is. As we align ourselves with balance, joy, and love on a moment-by-moment basis, we find that life begins to flow with ease. Our surrendered inner alignment is more fruitful than our driven striving.
12:10-12:50 Moving Meditation Together, we move in flow with a gentle yoga practice.
12:50-1:00 Teaching: The Law of Intention and Desire Intention and desire in the field of Pure Potentiality have an innate organizing power. When we are aligned and surrendered in our motivations, we can trust that the Universe is working to manifest our desires.
1:00-1:30 Silent Meditation Together, we sit in silence.
1:30-1:45 Teaching: The Law of Detachment The more we approach life with an open-hearted and flexible quality, the more available we are for loving relationships, peace, and joy. Acceptance and detachment are essential foundations of our daily practice.
1:45-2:15 Silent Meditation Together, we sit in silence.
2:15-2:30 Teaching: The Law of Dharma or Purpose in Life Every one of us has a unique gift...something only we can offer the world. When we offer ourselves fully in service to a Higher Will and seek to follow the flow as it unfolds within and around us, we find our deepest purpose and greatest fulfillment.
2:30-3:00 Final Sit & Optional Sharing Together, we sit, we write, and we have the opportunity to share.
