Lent, traditionally a soul-searching, penitential season to prepare for Easter resurrection, is a time to peel away the unnecessary, distill meaning and live into what is most important. Come explore and nourish your inner landscape and wellbeing while awakening joy and healing in the stillness and raw beauty of the New Mexico High Desert.
Based upon the 2018 book by Rev. Anita Amstutz, Soul Tending: Journey into the Heart of Sabbath, this retreat invites communities or individuals into themes of “Sabbath Mind”- simplicity, prayer, hospitality, play, nature as companion, creativity and re-imagining our work in the world.
“Sabbath is threshold time. The Celts called it “thin time”. It is a space and place where the veil between worlds is either ripped away or billows out before us as a gauzy, shimmering invitation. She asks us to step deeper into the mysteries of our inner landscape…into the landscapes around us that we usually do not notice. It is a time for rest, prayer, worship, art, song, music, sex, silence, loved ones, and food. Nature is a wonderful Sabbath companion.”
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.
