Fall 2016 Waterfront Retreat
in The Work at Light Landing
Learn how to USE Your Pain and Fear to move you into Peace, Freedom, and Prosperity!
November 4 – 6, 2016
Are you regularly plunged into doubt, confusion, and paralysis by the almost daily ups and downs, rejections, and really painful upsets of ‘putting yourself out there?
Do you easily lose confidence, momentum, and income as you struggle in this private hell–sabotaging the very relationships that could support you (especially the one with yourself and ‘all that is’)?
After all your inner work, does finally pursuing your dream or building your own business bring up WHATEVER is left that can throw you off?
What You’ll Experience
This lovely Chesapeake retreat provides a fun, intimate venue for both beginners and veterans of The work to truly trust the “happy symmetry” and the ‘no-matter-what’ peace and freedom held in our painful reactions to the people and circumstances that seem to go against our efforts to prosperously live our dream.
Overcome the isolation of this ‘Entrepreneur Epidemic’ and spend time building camaraderie as well as affiliate and joint venture partnerships with others who are dealing with the very same issues.
Learn what to DO with the triggers to flip them into just the prosperous lessons you were seeking. Then pursuing your dream becomes the perfect ‘spiritual grad school,’ where you start to receive all the support that was waiting for you all along.
LOCATION: Deale, MD
START: November 4, 2016 AT 9:30 a.m.
END: November 6, 2016 AT 3:30 p.m.
PRICE: $275-$375 (book earlier for better rates!)
Inquire deeply about the people and situations you THOUGHT were stealing your freedom and peace, and Find:
- The amazing gifts, reflections, and ‘instructions’ they hold for your own reliable peace/safety.
- 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 and complete freedom of choice.
- That you can find and love your own innocent self, even after seeing where your need to control has caused pain for yourself and others.
In 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!)
“The Symmetry of Self-Solidarity is the idea that at the same time you are undoing so much of the ego’s story and dismantling your old self, you begin to meet and fall completely in love with the most tender part of you that is still holding on to the thinking (and thus innocently creating what remains of your suffering.
In this reconciliation, you become who you really are: the unconditional forgiveness, warm understanding, and unfailing self-solidarity and self-advocacy that cannot come from ANYONE or ANYTHING outside you (and or in finding that inner connection, you also connect to EVERYTHING outside you). You and the small scared parts of yourself will begin to experience a sacred and absolute belonging to each other that allows you to look forward to whatever life brings!
Whatever you have experienced of this, it is just the tip of the iceberg. If you continue, this sweet self-solidarity will become the mainstay of your existence and your mainline to what is beyond existence. Together we will face the fear of worse-case scenarios where external events are concerned—and discover that the cost of failing to support, beating up, and so quickly ‘leaving’ our most innocent, well-meaning selves is worse–for ourselves, others, and the planet–than ANY other consequence we fear.” Shawn
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, and we experience the limitless prosperity that is already here.
A Happy Customer
This past Fall I attended Shawn’s 3-day riverside healing retreat putting The Work to work, where we dove headfirst into a sublime, lovely, intense, compassionate, and deep entry/ reentry into ourselves. We were held in expert arms, safe to delve and explore realms usually held at bay and inaccessible. I experienced in myself and witnessed in others profound heart-opening shifts.
I came away from that weekend in a very different place in myself. It gave me the opportunity to let go of what I had been holding onto so tightly around a very scary topic/theme of my life. I experienced healing and changes that have continued to inform my life and my decisions.
It is said that what we all want above all things are Love and Freedom.
I advocate highly for Shawn’s ability to help guide you HOME to both!
Her Commitment, Love and Skill, her Patience and Guidance, and especially her Courage are all for YOU and in service to YOUR HEALING. I love her and her work! If you’re ready to roll up your sleeves and get to it, this is the place and Shawn is the person!
I hope to see you at her next retreat!
