Great Guides of the Beloved: Female Mystics and Spiriual Teachers – G200921

Workshop ID: G200921
Dates: September 13 - September 16
Price: $450.00 - $835.00

We live in a world that has been and continues to be dominated by male religious figures and hierarchies, as well as masculine ideas of the divine. This retreat will introduce guests to the works and teachings of several female mystics and spiritual guides from various faith traditions. It will also provide retreat participants with feminine archetypes of the divine. This retreat will create a space for people to break free from the bondage of their conditionings with regard to what they have been taught to believe about religion and “God”. For, as the great Christian mystic Meister Eckhart stated, “The Ultimate and Highest leave taking is leaving God for GOD, leaving your notion of God for an Experience of That which transcends all notions.”

This retreat takes place at Casa del Sol, away from the main ranch, which provides quiet and safe space for work that engages spirit and focus, dedicated to deep spiritual and artistic contemplation.
