2017 Winter Weekend Retreat

with don demercurio
priory retreat house
february 3-5, 2017

Supported by the deep stillness of winter and the profound presence of this sacred space we will explore what it means to Be as One.

There is an emerging consciousness waking up within humanity at this time. As the old structures that were based in separateness are falling away a deeper and truer understanding of our true nature is arising.

When we recognize ourselves as the living field of consciousness that is manifesting as “we” rather than “me” we open to a freedom that comes from knowing that we are being created moment to moment as a dynamic, loving, intelligent presence that wants nothing more than to live through us and as us.

The weekend will include teaching, meditation, collective inquiry, movement, and creative revelation.
