Contracting with Mystery (Tim Scorer)

Ages 18+

Monday – Friday, 9:00 (contact info blocked) – 11:45 (contact info blocked)


Lovers of Mystery are all around: musicians and poets, storytellers and adventurers, botanists and dancers, gardeners and chefs, priests and parents, photographers and marathon runners, to name a few. There are many who honour the deep mysteries of our existence rather than be ruled by a culture of certainty and control. Perhaps you are one of those agents of mystery or perhaps you aspire to be more so. Let’s spend five mornings together engaging with aspects of mystery – Silence, wonder, rhythms of life, the play of words, archetypal energies, spontaneity, various human intelligences, currents of aliveness, and Sacred Presence – amazing ourselves with the ease of the ineffable, and deepening into our Contract with Mystery.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

After participating in more yoga classes and events this year than in my entire life, I am yearning for the opportunity to attend a professional retreat. The opportunity to grow my practice, learn from talented students and teachers, and immerse myself in this gorgeous Red Feather Lakes sanctuary is the dream of a lifetime! Sara

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.
