About This Event
While trying to give the best to our work and personal lives, we find ourselves facing a tangle of unrelenting demands compounded by the pace of technology. This retreat offers a pause—breathing space—a chance to disconnect from our devices and pressures, to remember our unique gifts, recharge our capacity to create, and return to the roots of perception and inspiration.
During early morning sits, extended day saunters and quiet explorations, we will find the path back to what truly guides our lives. With a packed lunch, we will head out from the lodge to spend full days, unhurried, in spacious meadows that edge the crystal clear Vallecitos River, in forests, among elk, wild horses and giant pines. Together we’ll sharpen our senses, expand our awareness, and engage with this remote landscape by reveling in its mysteries and learning about its natural history. We will also take time to sit in wild nature, write (with paper and pencil!), and relish languorous alone time. In the evenings we’ll enjoy delicious meals and relaxed fireside conversation as we hear from each other and explore what manifests when we take time away from the over-stimulation and demands of contemporary life.
This is not a fully silent retreat. Periods of silence will balance with engaging conversation as we consider the re-energizing and creative possibilities that arise when we leave technology and the clamor of our busy lives behind.
Rediscover the gifts of your extraordinary senses, the depths of the night sky and the peace of a pristine mountain valley. Let the early fall alchemy of New Mexico’s wild Tusas Mountains guide, revitalize and restore your inspired self. This rare time out is open to all professionals, creatives, students, artists and educators.
Join us for the 8th annual Wisdom of No Technology retreat.
