Goddess Within Retreat, The Chopra Center, Encinitas
This retreat, led by Amanda Collins, will examine the Celtic calendar during the period between Samhain and the Winter Solstice, the time that marks the end of the harvest season and the beginning of the “darker half” of the year. Solstice literally means ‘light standing still’. The Goddess Within will allow you to be still with yourself and your sisters and to recharge your beautiful souls.
Please join me for this sacred weekend of connection, reflection and surrender, as you allow yourself to be present, to listen deeply in the stillness and silence. This is a special time in the Celtic calendar for reflection and response to your heart, mind, body, soul, and spirit.
The plant and animal kingdom model this seasonal dormancy so beautifully for us, yet we feel the need to busy ourselves and to always be doing. This fourth quarter of the year allows space for hibernation and time to go inward. We will honor your body and soul by calling the Celtic goddesses of the season from the Morrigan and the Cailleach.
The retreat will provide a rare and wonderful opportunity to reclaim your authentic self, to witness and be witnessed, to surrender what no longer serves you, and to emerge renewed. Give yourself the gift of reclaiming, reconnecting, and remembering; sometimes it takes putting life on hold to do that.
