Located two miles from the main campus, Casa del Sol is a retreat house at Ghost Ranch dedicated to deeper spiritual contemplation. In 2013 many workshops which are conducive to small group work and contemplative space are being held at Casa del Sol. These workshops are designated with the sun symbol beside the title throughout workshop description pages.

Perhaps the greatest gift we can give another is to truly listen to their story. In this era fraught with concern, confusion, anxiety, noise, and fear, listening is called for. Rather than focusing our energies on managing, manipulating, and controlling, perhaps we are ready to listen. We can listen TO God, we can listen FOR God. That can happen at every level of our lives, from the most humble and mundane tasks to the most intimate sharings. Listening brings healing; listening brings hope.

In our time together, surrounded by the quiet and beauty of Ghost Ranch, we will listen deeply—in prayer, in sharing, in journaling, in mindful attention to earth and sky. We will listen to our inner voices. We will experience practical means of being effective listeners, reflect on life situations, such as illness, that particularly call for deep listening, explore how listening affects our relationships with ourselves, with others, with the earth and with God.

We will celebrate the wonder of God’s Presence in all aspects of life with stories and silence, with music and movement, with laughter and perhaps some tears. We will have fun, rest and reflect.
