Cultivating Reverence, five-day retreat at the Santa Sabina Center in San Rafael, CA, March 23-27

Reverence is that feeling of wonder, respect, and awe that opens us to the mysteries of existence and deepens our connection with all life. Moments of reverence can arise spontaneously when the conditions are right, but we can also cultivate a way of being in the world that makes such moments more likely. We can learn to free the mind from its relentless self-concern and pay attention with openness and curiosity, with a sense of humility and wonder. Doing so can heal the wound of separation and deepen our compassion for others, and for ourselves. On retreat we’ll use three related practices—Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement® lessons, guided meditations, and mindful poetry discussions—to explore the nature of reverence, why it’s so important, and how we can experience it more fully and consistently in our lives.
