The Power of Vulnerability: The Heart-Opening Healing Harp

About This Event

“Vulnerability is the birthplace of love, belonging, joy, courage, empathy, accountability, and creativity.” – Brene Brown, Ph.D.

Cradled with the sacred sounds of the therapeutic harp, psychologist and therapeutic musician Marcie Swift’s inspiring presentation will gently guide us toward our most authentic selves. Through a series of unique mindfulness and guided meditations, we will create true presence and celebrate freedom from shame, self-criticism, and perfectionism.

The therapeutic harp has been heavily researched as a conduit to decreased stress, isolation, depression, and worry.  For many, it creates an environment that fosters attentive and focused presence and a deeper sense of the spiritual.

With a series of nurturing, enlivening activities including writing, moving, listening, and sharing, we will settle into true presence to ourselves.  Our intention is to deepen our presence to ourselves, our ability to connect with others, and to expand our ever-present capacity for love.

“When searching for greater clarity in our purpose, or deeper and more meaningful spiritual lives, vulnerability is the path.” – Brene Brown, Ph.D.

      Harvest Celebration 2018

    As always, a delightful evening!. Thoughts: 1. May want to publish an agenda in future. Not wise to be fashionably late. Reports were that the event was in full swing at 6:30 PM and 6:45 arrival felt like we were catching up. 2. Would be wise to provide the wifi information so everyone could connect for the text fundraiser. Verizon worked but several people near me said that they could not connect using ATT. The wifi would allow everyone to connect See you next year!!

      A Magical Place

    The Copper Beech Institute offers a wide variety of courses, meditations, workshops and is housed on a beautiful peace of property. I enjoy the Wednesday Candlelight Meditation as a group or 30-40 of us meet to share this mindful experience and are led by the incredible Miranda who always gives a talk that seems to hit home. This place is filled with such love and kindness. Go check it out!

Thank you!

We're glad you've joined our retreat community. See you around :)

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
