Path of the Heart Retreat
June 23, 2022 - June 26, 2022
This is an ACMHE member-submitted event. Questions should be directed to the event organizer (Juliet Trail) and venue (Sanctuary Retreat Center).
We invite you to join us for a four-day journey along the Path of the Heart, June 23-26, 2022. The retreat will be a voyage into our own hearts as well as setting an intention to establish heart-based connections amongst the group, and treat one another in compassionate, gentle ways. During the four days, we will also build a labyrinth on the land at the beautiful Sanctuary Retreat Center. The labyrinth serves as a metaphor for the journey we take to get to the core, the center ~ in ourselves and with one another. We will jointly create an altar to the heart in the center of the labyrinth, thus creating a Path of the Heart on the land that will serve others for many years to come.
Led by Juliet Trail, PhD (founder, Courageous Compassion Connection), Dorisse Aha, RN (founder, BreathDance) and Kia Scherr (author, Forgiveness is a Choice).
The retreat will incorporate stillness practices, movement practices and down time for personal reflection and integration. We will engage in breathwork; mindfulness, peace and High-Tech Meditations; self-compassion and compassion for all beings; and a variety of embodiment practices such as contemplative walks, conscious dance, and the construction of the new labyrinth.
Adults (18+) of all ages, genders, gender identities and ability levels are invited to attend. Modifications to movement practices or physical work for building the labyrinth can easily be made for anyone with physical concerns. Please note that the Sanctuary Retreat Center is located in a forested area including hills and various types of footpaths, and those with balance or challenges to being ambulatory are encouraged to contact us directly to make sure that the setting is safe and comfortable for you.
