Spring Retreat

Spring 2016 Waterfront Retreat
in The Work at Light Landing

COME JOIN US AT LIGHT LANDING IN DEALE, MARYLAND!
April 30, 9:30 AM –  May 2, 3:30 PM
REMEMBER, SPACE REALLY IS LIMITED! 

  • WHERE DO YOU ENGAGE IN PAINFUL SELF-DOUBT AND FEAR OF NOT HAVING ENOUGH (MONEY, TIME, HEALTH, SLEEP, FOOD, LOVE)?
  • HOW DO YOU STILL CRITICIZE, ABANDON, AND FAIL TO FORGIVE AND SUPPORT YOUR DEAREST SELF?
  • HOW ARE THESE TWO THINGS CONNECTED?

The 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 self-forgiveness and solidarity, which yields 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, and we experience the limitless prosperity that is already here.

NestleIMG_4342d on 2 country-like acres in a convenient corner of the Chesapeake Bay, just 45 minutes from Washington, Baltimore, and 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 The Work of Byron Katie sharing the rich inquiries and exercises in ‘HAPPY SYMMETRY’ that are planned for this sacred time, you’ll have time to recline on one of our delicious chairs, swings or hammocks; enjoy you new friends; paddle around on small watercraft; do yoga or meditation on the pier; enjoy an outdoor firepit; swim in the Chesapeake Bay; or gaze at some stars–and be fed by our great cook!

Some of the FOLLOW-UP COMMENTS from FALL Retreat Participants:

“I can honestly say this weekend has had more positive impact on me than any other single thing I’ve done in my life.”

and

“I’ve been to a lot of these kinds of things, and had studied The Work before, and breathwork, and ACIM, but I have to say this one was really different–it made such a tangible impact that is still with me.”

and

“When I arrived home, it seemed like my step-kids were different–I guess it’s just that I am seeing them so differently and not feeling like a victim!  I’m just not struggling with all my horrible judgments of them and others–GONE!  Wow.  And instead of being all ‘in it for themselves’ like usual, they are making me dinner tonight!  I haven’t even said anything… how could they have changed so much!?”

“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.

IMG_4383In 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

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 awayP1010122 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!
