We are living in challenging times of violence, suffering, and fear. And yet, in the words of Rumi:
You are the fearless guardian of Divine Light, so come,
return to the root of the root of your own soul.
Why are you so enchanted by the world
when a mine of gold lies within you?
Open your eyes and come.
Return to the root of the root of your own soul.
In this retreat, participants will be invited to acknowledge the real suffering of the world while exploring the Divine Light within. In returning to the root of our own soul we will be invited to engage in inner work around the paradox of violence and non-violence. Together we will have the opportunity to join others who are working to build a nonviolent future on our planet.
