RADICAL JOY FOR HARD TIMES
AUGUST 28-SEPTEMBER 1, 2019
ESCHWEGE INSTITUT
ESCHWEGE, GERMANY

In diesem Workshop erwachen wir zu der Last, der Schönheit und der Freude, die wir entdecken, wenn wir uns den verletzten Orten auf der Erde zuzuwenden, und ihnen Aufmerksamkeit, Geschenke der Dankbarkeit , oder des Beileids schenken. Durch diese Praxis bringen wir den Ort zurück in den Kreis des Lebens und finden Kreativität, Bedeutung und Ermächtigung in uns selbst. In diesen beängstigendenen Zeiten ist es ein wichtiges Instrument des Überlebens, die Erde in ihre Krankheit und ihre Gesundheit zu lieben.

DECLARING YOUR ELDERHOOD
OCTOBER 31-NOVEMBER 3, 2019
MORNING BLOSSOM RETREAT
MUSKOKA, NEAR HUNTSVILLE, ONTARIO, CANADA

You’ve spent years gaining experience. Surviving the hard times. Learning from both mistakes and triumphs. Now at last you know who you are. And yet, when you reach this hard-won maturity, many people start telling you that aging is something to avoid! Elderhood should be the crowning time of our lives. The time when we finally let go of what we no longer need and claim what we really want—to be, to do, to wear, to befriend. We invite you to step forth proudly into all that’s made you who you are…. and all you’re still in the process of becoming.

Bali from Within
March 2-14, 2020
Bali, Indonesia
Guides: Trebbe Johnson, with Balinese Guides: Rucina Ballinger, Wayan Suriada, and Nyoman “Mangkok” Sutarya

Each day, the Balinese people can be seen engaging in what is obviously a vibrant, creative, spiritually intact culture in full view of—yet rarely including—outsiders. For ten years I’ve been working with Balinese friends to offer this trip for only four participants. Together we penetrate the scrim of colorful, often enigmatic impressions… to discover Bali from Within. In 2019 we’ll  be in time to join the festivities and the solemnity of Nyepi, Balinese New Year. Click here to read more.
