10:00am: Wisdom’s Call – Aspects of the Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine with Elaine
Known as the Goddess of Mercy, Gentle Protectress, Bodhisattva of Compassion, even the saviour of seamen and fishermen, Kuan Yin holds many titles. The spelling of her name may vary at times, but the effect her spoken name produces on those with a Buddhist background creates a similar reaction in the West when one is speaking of the Virgin Mary. Kwan Yin, like Mary, has always been a great part of the energy of motherly compassion and unconditional love in the Universe. During this session, we will connect with this beautiful wisdom in order that we can bring forward the part of ourselves that, deep down, connects to the Divine. It will include a gentle, guided activity session where we will begin to open our hearts so that we may hear the wise, gentle voice within, the voice which prompts, encourages, validates and affirms where we are – right now, and then onward – as we begin to shine a light on the beautiful pathway of discovery ahead.
1:30-3:00pm: The Passion Test with LeAnne
Welcome to The Passion Test, where passion, joy, and fulfillment are everyday experiences. “When you are clear, what you want will show up in your life and only to the extent that you are clear.” Janet Bray Attwood, Co-author of the NY Times Bestseller, “The Passion Test.” Clarity does not come all at once. It is a process. The Passion Test® is a tool for gaining clarity by effectively prioritizing what really matters most to us. Learn this simple, yet powerful process and you will... * Gain clarity about those things that are most important in your life * Discover your top 5 Passions which are clues to your personal destiny * Learn valuable tools so you can begin living your passions today * Make a difference in our world through living passionately as God/Divine desired. "Your passions and what God wants for you are one and the same!"
3:15-4:30pm: Ceremony, Rituals and Practice with Janine
Ceremonies and rituals have been a part of the human experience since the beginning. Making space and time to develop a relationship with the Divine can be challenging in our everyday lives. It is easy to allow the business and obligations of our lives to overtake our relationship with God, Creator of all. Rituals and ceremonies offer us a way to stop, connect and be. We will learn the wisdom of rituals and ceremonies, link the common elements used within all religions and spiritual practices, as well as have fun co-creating our own.
7:30pm: Concert Andrea Paquin in the Chapel
Delicate acoustic harmonies and lighthearted romanticism define the sound of Andrea Paquin. "Paquin tugs at the heartstrings of her listeners and the rich, cozy humility of her voice goes down like red wine over good conversation." (Northeast Performer) Andrea soulfully shares the collective spiritual journey that we are all on through her music and stories. She has the ability to heal and revive all those who listen. This is a treat and honor to have her with us.
7:00-7:30am: Labyrinth Walking Meditation (optional)
9:45-11:15am: Connecting with all that was and all that will be with Janine
Every blade of grass, every drop of water in the ocean, every bird, animal, tree and human are connected. We are One in the Spirit. Learn the wisdom of seeing the divine connection in all things, events and circumstances. We will be in nature as we learn to connect to all that is and was. Orienting ourselves to see us as a collective unit of peace and love.
11:15-11:45am: Short Break
1:00-2:00pm: The Passion Test (Part Two) with LeAnne: During this 2nd section of The Passion Test, you'll learn the simple SECRET to living your passionate life and how this will ripple and change not only your world but our planet, as we are each connected energetically!
2:00-3:00pm: Manifesting and Co-creating the Vision with Elaine
With a Celtic heritage, Elaine learnt from a very young age that every branch, flower, leaf, feather, ripple of water, pebble or blade of grass resonates with Divine energy. Nature is a blessed healer and so, during this last shared activity , we will collect things from outside which we will use to create a wonderful mural. This mural, or mandala, will not only be a reflection of our time we have spent together - and the bonds of love, friendship and community that we have nurtured - it will also highlight our way forward. There will be a gifted message for everyone to take home as well, as the sure knowledge that our paths are blessed by Divine Grace, and our footsteps made stronger by the Love which will forever be with us... until we meet again.
3:00–3:30pm: Closing Ceremony with Janine, Elaine and Andrea
Healing Sessions with Andrea Paquin (additional cost)
Reiki: A Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
Vibrational Sound Healing at the Cellular Level: All matter is energy vibrating at different rates thus by altering the rate of vibration the structure of matter can be changed. The Himalayan/ Tibetan bowls vibrate at what is historically/traditionally recognized as the frequency of perfection.
Individual Prayer Sessions with Janine(free) Prayer is powerful. There are no words that can express the miracles and peace that come when we pray together. Throughout the weekend, Janine will have designated times to sit, talk and pray individually. There are no limits to Gods love and compassion.
Recent Past Events
I feel like the Mad March Hare from Alice in Wonderland - 'I'm late, I'm late' etc ... but of course, Im not. I have been super busy over the past few months, settling my daughter into her studies at Yale, being present for my family and working on the festivals - as well as generally keeping my heart open to what direction 2016 should take as regards to retreats and personal development days. I have just realised that I also put on a spontaneous day in Wiltshire in November which I never even posted here!! It turned out to be a wonderful day - and what made it even more special - was that it was my birthday week - so we all celebrated! As you can see!
