Our True Self is the “treasure hidden in the field” or “a chunk of the immortal diamond”. (Richard Rohr). Our relationship to nature is more than metaphor. It is as essential as our relationship with our own hearts which, like our lovely planet, keeps beating, giving us life without our paying any attention to it. This retreat invites us to attend to those life-giving relations, encouraging us to reframe and reset the meaning of our lives again and again as we open communication between the known and unknown parts of our lives. Participants will be invited to explore the seeds of the True Self as we relate to our planet both alone and in community. Jeff Hood whose work in nature spans many years and has touched many lives will co-facilitate this retreat.
