Annual Womens' Retreat

women in shrineThe profoundly thoughtful Albert Einstein commended, “Never lose a holy curiosity.” Never lose the wondering about life, how we are forever and beautifully bound with one another, even with the whole of the cosmos. Beginning each day as if it is our very first – awakening the beginner - opens up the heart’s eye to how far we vulnerable creatures might stretch.  Through poetry, story, music, film, dream, movement, conversation, and quiet, we will hold open our lives to begin again; to envision the expanse of what it means to be human. In the embrace of Shrine Mont’s hallowed landscape, our intention is to embrace and integrate daily practice that is sure to remain a touchstone for life.
