Event Details

In this daylong retreat you will explore and practice the sacred art of conscious contentment. You will learn how it is truly possible to be authentically content under all circumstances and how this depth of contentment can become the basis for a new kind of life.

In our culture we are taught to believe that we can only be content if circumstances make us content. Sure, we can learn to tolerate more, but we can only be authentically content under certain specific conditions. Because of this belief, our life is spent in an almost unbroken effort to attempt to control circumstances and create the conditions of our happiness.

In this retreat day you will learn that true contentment is always available to you when you know where inside yourself to look for it.

During this retreat you will experience the true inner source of spiritual freedom.

Spiritual freedom occurs when we no longer have any doubt that happiness is always only found inside us. The freedom we win, is the freedom to stop searching for contentment outside of ourselves. The spiritual journey is then simply the time it takes to fully embrace a source of happiness that cannot be taken away.

You will discover that the attainment of spiritual freedom is the end of seeking. It is the end of our search for meaning and happiness in life, because we realize that life is inherently meaningful and always joyous.

The end of seeking is not the end of the spiritual path, however, it is the beginning, because now that you are no longer preoccupied with the search for meaning and happiness you are available to live the life of your destiny – the one you are here to live.

You were never here to struggle unhappily. You were born to joyfully share your deepest gifts and talents and beauty. Once your own life is fulfilled, what else is there to do but shine with your deepest radiance and give what you can to the world.

Join this daylong retreat and engage with a profound meditation practice called The Art of Conscious Contentment so that you can experience the true inherent joy of being alive. The inner clarity and wisdom you find will open your heart to the possibility of finally living the life you’ve always known you were meant to live.
