The Deepening Into Slowing Down Retreat

I’m holding an online retreat, Deepening Into Slowing Down, from June 21-23, 2024, and you’re invited.

In this retreat, we’ll meditate together, I’ll teach about the depths possible in slowing down, we’ll look at our old habitual patterns, and do some work on this together. It’s a 3-day retreat designed to have you leave a changed person.

I’m also offering a $100 discount on the retreat if you sign up by the end of May, so grab your seat now.
