Fall 2015 Waterfront RRR Retreat in The Work at Light Landing

  • In what ways do you see others (or life events) as the enemy—with the ability to hurt you?
  • After all your inner work, where do you STILL find your peace is dependent on others’ reactions to you?
  • Do you try to believe that ‘all is well,’ while still not  trusting the “reliable symmetry” held in the very thing that upsets you?

Use Your Pain and Fear to move you into
the Peace and Safety that is Always Here!
October 23, 10:00 AM –  October 25, 3:30 PM

****CANDIDATES:  THIS EVENT IS WORTH 12 CREDITS FOR CERTIFICATION  IN THE WORK OF BYRON KATIE*****  

Come and Experience our unique Fall on the Chesapeake!  This country-like waterfront 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 safety held in our painful reactions to people and circumstances.

Pier, kayaks, swings, sunsets, hot tub, yummy food, serenity, our amazing ‘firefly forest’, and optional fireworks!

 After all your inner work, do you often feel you still haven’t gotten a truly dependable ‘no-matter-what’ sense of peace and safety?  The peaceful waterfront setting and rich content of this retreat offers each inquirer the opportunity to shift into the beginnings of living from a completely different paradigm—one where we glimpse true fear-less-ness in welcoming whatever life brings. 

Let Your Pain and Fear move you into
Peace, Freedom, and Prosperity this Halloween!

Fall retreats

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 ot receive all the support that was waiting for you all along.

“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 that anything could steal our peace or freedom begin to drop away.”   Shawn

Find the “Edge of the Envelope” of Your Own Evolution via the VERY Things You Resist or Fear!

Inquire deeply about the people and situations you THOUGHT were stealing your freedom and peace, and Find:

  • The amazing gifts, reflections, and ‘instructions’ your current and potential clients, partners, and supporters hold for your own reliable peace.
  • How you really don’t need–or even want– things to be other than what they are! (All the gifts are right here)
  • That you have a sweet and sacred connection to who- and whatever is pushing your buttons and complete freedom of choice, even when the issues seem to relate to your survival!
  • That you can find and love your own innocent self, even after seeing where others do not resonate with or want to buy what you are offering.

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).

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!)

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).

“There is deep integrity, Shawn, in what you share… It’s palpable and permeates your words and actions. Your willingness to be both visible and vulnerable is a continual testimony of your dedication to ‘walk your talk’. I also really appreciate your sense of humor that reads as kindness…such a kind heart ❤ you have. So beautiful is The Work that you share. Thanks so much…I value your stand and your commitment to truth, beauty and true care for us all…it’s a treasure.”  Donna Drozda

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!

A Testimonial

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!

  1. Thanks for checking this out! Please let me know if you have any problems with this site, and feel free to call, text, or email if you want to discuss it more and see if this is a good fit for you. 🙂 Shawn 1-301-785-0545 clarityworks@comcast.net

  2. Shawn you rock my world!!
    Falling in love with reality EXACTLY as it is showing up has been a profound shift for me!
    I get teary sitting here just observing this beautiful perfection of the Unfolding that is my life.
    The incense stick just finished burning. The last piece drooped and fell. The last wave of smoke whirled through the air and dissipated.
    A cat is wailing outside. Cicadas sing. Roosters crow from across the river.
    I am sitting on this chair, observing it all.
    This is Life. This moment is all I’ve got. This moment is the Gift from the Universe, to me, right now.
    Do I want it?
    Thanks to your facilitation, I have said YES and YES and YES again and again, even in the most seemingly difficult times.
    What a radical way to live.
    I wish everyone could have the opportunity to join this retreat with you and have their lives be radically transformed like mine!!

  3. And YES YES YES back at you! I see how your work with me has moved you almost completely out of victim consciousness into this free-fall into what life brings (and you are so courageous in quickly jumping on it whenever you sink into the pain of trying to resist or control). Thanks for sharing your amazing experience ‘Unlinking what you think!” As you wrote to me recently, we have CERTAINLY witnessed the blossoming of all aspects of your life in such a short time! xo

  4. “Till Children Grow up Knowing There are No Outside Enemies” – Supporting you all the way here Shawn! Awesome venue and outstanding offer! I can see many sold out retreats! Success!!!

  5. Thanks so much, Ana. Yes…. That bigger mission is what really tugs at my heart strings now that I know we don’t have to labor SO long under the weight of our stressful thinking! Children get this instinctively–we actually TEACH them to buy into constructing and preserving an identity (which shuts out reality as it is showing up). It’s like we just got it all ‘wrong’ when it came to believing that our minds really can predict or intrepret what is going on here. When we become the observer rather than the believer of that programmed firing of neural networks, we really can find–almost instantly by looking at whatever was upsetting us–that we are simply floating along on this sea of love and constant support. We can’t pass that along to our children until we have ‘undone’ our own programming, so instead of ‘the buck stops here’, i like to say, “The pain stops HERE.”

  6. Great posts! I am looking forward to my first Retreat with Shawn this weekend. April 18-21. After reading the posts I am sure it will be life changing. I am blessed to have met Shawn and fellow BK students. Love and Light, Cathi

  7. Hi Cathi–Thanks! Looking forward to having you this weekend, too. You’ve been so motivated and clear about how much this work can help you–as it did me–to really use what upsets you to know much greater peace and freedom, and find the innocence in those thoughts that terrorize us. See you Saturday! 🙂 Shawn
