Young Adults Workshop

Making One’s Own Nature
Young Adults Workshop with Deepa Gulrukh Patel & Jacob Ellenberg
Week 4C, August 14th – 20th, 2022

Once we contemplate and become one with nature, our hearts open to its music.” – Hazrat Inayat Khan

This year, we journey into retreat, a time-honed process of mystical transformation.

Ultimately, the retreat is about accelerating the evolution of our being, humanity, the planet, and the cosmos. The retreat process has come down to us through the ages as a synthesis of spiritual traditions and practices. Working with core elements of our experience–sound, music, breath, movement and concentration–the retreat orchestrates conditions suitable for shedding our past, deepening our present, and infusing our futures with grandeur of who we really are. Our souls long for a truth and experience beyond what the everyday world tends to offer, and the retreat is an illuminating method for approaching that hallowed ground.
