June 16-20, Ossining, NY, Mariandale Retreat Center
Becoming a prophetic person starts with a spiritual practice. It moves from silence to thought to word and action. When our words and actions are rooted in our spiritual commitments, we become a light in the world and a force for good. This workshop is an entry point into our own wisdom. Using creative exercises, poetry, storytelling and video, we learn the secrets of mysticism and non-duality. We learn how to let go of the fears that have kept us silent and create a life that is full of purpose, spirit and prophetic power.
June 21-23, Latham, NY, St. Joseph Provincial House
A weekend retreat to ponder our next steps in light of the evolutionary changes we are experiencing in our religions and our faith. Is the God we knew relocating from the heavens to our hearts? What does it mean for us to act prophetically? What does it mean to be a mystic and what do we have to learn from them? How do we create conversations of consequence that are inclusive and inspiring?Find out more »

Limited to six women. This sabbatical is at Muse Lodge, in the foothills of the Adirondacks in upstate NY. It starts at noon on Monday, August 19 and ends at noon on Friday, August 23. The time will be largely your own, though we will meet for common meals at lunch and dinner. I will facilitate a daily circle that will last approximately an hour, where I will share a reading and a teaching. During the week, I will meet with each woman for an hour individually. We will explore whatever you choose to explore. During the week, I will also take a one-of-a-kind photograph of you that reflects the part of you you want others to see.Find out more »
Healing the world begins with healing ourselves. As Ramana Maharshi reminds us: “The greatest service we can render the world is our own self-realization.” This means that we become the greatest light in the world when we master our own ordeals and connect our creative potential with our spiritual power. Becoming a prophetic person starts with a spiritual practice. Spirit moves from silence to thought to word and action.Find out more »
