12 CE Credits. On this silent 4 month nature meditation training in the beauty of Spirit Rock, we explore through silent daylong retreats, awareness and sensory meditations that support insight, interconnection, joy and peace.
We will learn from nature’s teachings on impermanence, and the inter-dependence of life. We will also explore how nature evokes not only profound insight but also brings forth the capacity for love, resilience and inspired action in these ecologically challenging times.
Be prepared for unexpected delight, mystery and illumination.
