Well Being Retreat Center is offering a weekend retreat entitled “Detours and Cul-de-Sacs on the Spiritual Journey” led by Don Oakley, the author of "It's Time to Wake Up Now: The Top Ten Myths that Can Hijack Spiritual Awakening," a five star rated book on Amazon, and by Patty Bottari, a Director of Well Being Foundation and longtime employee and student of both Adyashanti and Byron Katie.
There are many opportunities to get lost or get complacent on the spiritual path. This weekend will be devoted to an exploration of some of the common tripping points or places where we can get stuck, lost or deluded. Acknowledging the potential for veering off the path is the only sure way of staying honest.
This retreat is a non-denominational opportunity to explore one’s own true nature – free from the everyday distractions and busyness of our lives. The rtreat will include silent sittings in the serenity of our meeting room or down by the river, some guided meditation, structured sharing and a guided inquiry talks by Don Oakley on Saturday morning entitled “Detours and Cul-de-Sacs on the Spiritual Journey.“ . All activities during the weekend are voluntary, of course, and all inquiry will be experientially grounded.
There will be a $40 "Housekeeping Fee" for this retreat and we ask that you bring and prepare one meal. There is no charge for housing which will be on a first come first serve basis. Depending on the number of people attending, two or three people may be responsible for a supper or a breakfast, for example. (We expect that 15 – 24 people may attend.) In this way, you will have an opportunity to experience serving and being served. You will also be asked to help with kitchen clean-up for one or two of the meals – usually a 20 or 30 minute endeavor. You may be surprised to find that these “yogi chores” can create a sense of community and surprisingly deep friendships.
Note that recently these Well Being retreats have been fully booked so if you would like to attend, we suggest that you register early.
