                                   “COMING ALIVE” RETREATS FOR WOMEN
(See the general description for retreats on services p.)
SEPT. 27-29, 2019
Real joy is deeper than the happiness that comes from external circumstances and all the spiritual traditions speak of JOY as a quality of authentic living and an expression of the Sacred. It doesn’t ignore the suffering in life or in OUR life but allows us to see the greater good and to uplift those around us. As we deepen our capacity to experience joy, we become part of the solution to the world’s suffering, not part of the problem! As lovely as that sounds, neuroscience shows us that the inherent negativity bias of the brain can keep us locked in patterns of fear, criticism, judgments and comparisons for a lifetime. This weekend will present and integrate practices from various spiritual traditions, neuroscience and psychology to cultivate JOY in your life on a daily basis. Whether you are a beginner or seasoned practitioner, the practical tools at this retreat will benefit you! Suggested readings: Awakening Joy by James Baraz; Hardwiring Happiness by Rick Hanson.
