New Year’s Spiritual Renewal Retreat

For all levels.

End the old year and enter the new with reflection and spiritual nourishment. Whether you’re new to spiritual practice or a seasoned practitioner, this retreat supports you in sinking deeply into your heart’s knowing, fine-tuning your life’s purpose and calling, and renewing your connection to the ever-present source of divinity.

Explore deep reflection, meditation, Sanskrit mantra, yogic breathing, self-inquiry, contemplation of scripture and inspired writings, ritual, and group discussion. Return home with the inspiration and guidance you need to deepen your practice.

Note Please bring a journal and any favorite inspirational writing or scripture. You may also bring a symbol of anything you wish to let go of from the past, a symbol of what you would like to expand on in the new year, and any symbols of divinity that inspire you.
