Nature and Mystical Experience

Friday, September 14, 2018  -  Sunday, September 16, 2018

GilChrist Retreat Center 56265 Day Rd Three Rivers , MI

In this weekend retreat, we enter the inner spaciousness that comes with contemplative engagement with the natural world. Through opening a conversation with the earth, the wind, the fire, and the water, we renew our connection with the vital energy that makes our physical lives possible and that cleanses and heals our emotional nature. The retreat includes time in solitude and time in community. As a facilitator of retreats, Martha’s intention is to share the simple and beautiful contemplative practices that have guided and supported her for many years.  These include the mystical practices that she learned during a ten-year apprenticeship in the Andes Mountains of Ecuador. Silence, solitude, and nature are the deep teachers that guide her path and that she shares with others.
