September 30 - October 6, 2018 Retreat on Crete: The Art of Growing Older and Wiser


Please note:  registration closes June 15, 2018!  

Come and join us on the unspoiled west coast of Kissamos, Crete for our second Sacred Aging retreat! Our last one included participants from Germany, Belgium, England, Ireland and Holland.  

This group will be limited to a small circle of those 50 years on up, and will be limited to about 10 - 12  participants.  

The daily schedule will  include  healing and movement practice (qigong), meditation, spiritual practices from Sufi and Buddhist traditions,  sharing contemplative themes on various subjects related to growing older and wiser.  There will also be plenty of  free time for swimming, relaxation and going on mountain walks in the afternoon, either  on your own or with others from the group.  

Some of the themes of this Sacred Ageing retreat may include:

*  Consciously looking at unexamined, self-limiting beliefs, stereotypes and assumptions about ageing; 

*  Practicing self-compassion to cope more effectively with change, worry, and stresses associated with ageing;

*  Recognizing and reflecting on what has given heart and meaning to your life and how this brings inspiration to becoming a wise elder;

*  Enhancing  connection and reducing isolation from others through open hearted sharing

*  Increasing acceptance and decreasing fear in looking at death and dying both for ourselves as well as for our loved ones.

* Exploring and practicing the importance of spirituality and ongoing work with daily practices...

and much more.

This is a unique opportunity to give time and space to an important phase of life's journey!  Please register as soon as possible while there is still space!
