While the mind of separation is loud and lives in shallow waters, whole mind is quiet and lives in deep waters. It hears the heart beating… the waves the the shore… the rhythmic experience of embodiment.

Retreats are the most direct way to deepen our embodiment of compassionate awareness. On retreat, we stop, slow down, and savor our vibrant aliveness. We are guided in practices that allow the habit patterns of the conditioned mind to melt away so that we can remember who we are at a deeper level. 

Many of Eden’s retreats are held in the sanctuary of silence, which gives us support to listen to the still small voice within that often gets drowned out in the noise of daily life. 

Some retreats — including silent meditation practice  while sitting and walking — also include conscious movement, writing, dharma talks, personal guidance sessions, solo time, Relational Mindfulness and the opportunity to connect with one another. This movement between silence and gentle socializing, in a container of intention, can help people to access their ability to stay connected to true nature and energetic stillness whether alone or with others.

All retreats include deep time in nature and practices that help us to deepen our relationship with the natural world. The natural world is our greatest ally in remembering how to be fully alive, free, and in the flow.

 It can take preparation to pause from daily life and go on retreat. Retreats are life-changing and nourish the soul in the most profound way. Giving ourselves the gift of retreat is an expression of love and willingness. 


For retreats, the policy is: If you cancel 5 weeks or more before the

up and cancel within those three weeks) your registration pledge will not
be refunded.
