UN-LINK WHAT YOU THINK AND LET LIFE BLOSSOM

Spring Waterfront Retreat in The Work at Light Landing

In what ways do you resist, fear, or try to control the unfolding of your reality?   At what cost?  Even after all that inner work, where do you STILL not simply allow life (including your self and loved ones) to bud, blossom, and mature –each in its own way and time?

COME FALL INTO LOVE, AND LET LIFE CATCH YOU!
April 16, 9:30 AM –  April 18, 3:30 PM

SPACE TRULY IS LIMITED!spring2008 246The peaceful,  waterfront setting and rich content of this retreat offers each inquirer a unique opportunity to begin living from a completely different paradigm—one where we glimpse true fear-less-ness in welcoming whatever life brings. I cherish the opportunity to host you here and look forward to the collective gifts we receive when together we ask to be shown what life looks like when our stories of what ‘should be’ drop away.

FIND THE EDGE OF THE ENVELOPE OF YOUR OWN EVOLUTION VIA THE THINGS YOU RESIST or FEAR!

Inquire deeply about the people and situations you THOUGHT Needed to be Managed, Controlled or Changed, and Find:

  • The amazing gifts, reflections, and ‘instructions’ they hold for you
  • How you really don’t need–or even want– things to be other than what they are!
  • That you have a sweet and sacred connection to who- and whatever is pushing your buttons
  • Love for your innocent self, even after seeing where your need to control caused pain for yourself and others.

Nestled on 2 country-like acres in a convenient corner of the Chesapeake Bay, just 45 minutes from Washington, Baltimore, Alexandria, and 20 minutes from Annapolis, Light Landing’s unique setting includes plenty of charming spots to wander, play, or just be with nature (your dear self).

IMG_4369In addition to newcomers and old timers in TW sharing the rich inquiries and exercises planned for this sacred time, you’ll have time to recline on one of our delicious chairs, swings or hammocks; paddle around on small watercraft; do yoga or meditation on the pier, enjoy an outdoor firepit, or swim in the Chesapeake Bay (then jump in our hot tub to take off the Spring chill or gaze at some stars!)

I’m happy for you to call, text, or email me to make sure this is a good fit for you or to discuss questions clarityworks@comcast.net /1-301-785-0545  (email to arrange Skype call).

PLEASE NOTE: While we have some great outdoors to stretch out in, this is an intimate retreat venue with lots of shared space and fun indoors. We’ve had a very successful vacation rental business in both The Flat and The Cottage, and have hosted private retreats in The Work. At the same time, this is just our SECOND group retreat in The Work, so we are trying out one possible way to set up and price accommodations.

In other words…. We always welcome your feedback or stories of frustration or creative solutions!
