Guided BioSpiritual Focusing Weeklong Retreat

In this silent guided retreat, we will explore the practice of BioSpiritual Focusing as based on the work of Eugene Gendlin and further developed by Frs. Pete Campbell and Ed McMahon.  Participants will attend morning group sessions of learning and discussion, and each afternoon will meet one-on-one with a Focusing Companion. There will be two optional evening discussions, providing observations and opportunities for questions regarding the process of BioSpiritual Focusing. Silence during the rest of the day is suggested. As you participate in this life-giving and life-changing experience over the course of the week, you will become more and more aware of the sacred story you carry in your own body and the movement of grace in your life.

Begins with supper at 6:00 pm on Thursday and concludes at 11:00 am on Tuesday.

Cost – $650 Balance due 10 days prior to the start of the retreat.
