“New Beginnings” Summer Workshop Series & Shasta Retreat
Looking to this summer – taking place against the backdrop of a rapidly changing climate, Covid-19, and the powerful global uprisings demanding equity and unity – I’m beyond excited about what our 2020 Summer Series has in store. To be certain, we are – to a one – in completely uncharted territory. Life doesn’t look or feel like it used to. The future is less certain than ever before. And it is only in facing this unknown with courage and empathy that we earn the kind of transformation so many consider beyond our reach.
These last few months have challenged all of us – whether we’re working on the front lines, out of work, or working from home – the rhythm of our lives has fundamentally changed. This is when we learn about who we are. How has this time felt to you? What have you learned in the midst of the uncertainty and discomfort? And most important, what behaviors and beliefs do you know you must release in order to accept the irrefutable invitation to grow beyond your conditioned self?
A breakthrough opportunity is on the table now – for you. For me. For all of us. This is evolution.
It’s a collective wake-up time, and everyone’s invited. That includes you!
So please, accept this invitation to join us for our new online workshop and an extraordinary summer workshop experience. We are adapting the Series in response to Covid-19, so read on to learn more about what to expect, and how to be a part of it.
What is the Summer Series?
Our New Beginnings Summer Workshop Series is a comprehensive, experiential progression that moves you through deepening levels of self-awareness. The Series consists of three weekend workshops over the course of two months, culminating in what we call Level 4, “Transformation” – a week of profound, contemplative retreat in the wilderness of the Mt. Shasta area.
This summer-long immersion, which includes an herbal cleanse, catalyzes a powerful turning point: What would life be if you were guided not by security-seeking, but by inspiration? Beginning with “The Gift of Change – Upheaval as Opportunity,” you’ll discover and release the beliefs, assumptions and stories that have kept you limited and separated in the past.
What can I expect from the Summer Series?
The Summer Series is a change agent that takes us from wanting to live differently to actually doing it. Real growth and change will always require a letting go of what we’ve known ourselves to be, so we can become mature and open, instead of defending against all that life brings. The Summer Series gives participants the space to look deeply within and learn how to cultivate the courage and focus necessary to take these steps. In the process, you will also gain awareness, tools and practices that help you alter the way you see yourself and navigate your world. In short, the Series will help you break through internal barriers and into a powerful, new way of being.
How is Covid-19 affecting the workshops?
To accommodate Covid-19 precautions, our Summer Series will look a little different this year. The Level 1 workshop – our new “Gift of Change” retreat – will be held online (June 26-28). The Level 2 workshop, “Living Your Inspiration” (July 10-12), will either be virtual or in-person, depending on how things unfold in the coming weeks. Level 3, “Integration,” will be in-person and with safeguards (July 23-26), as will Level 4, “Transformation,” (July 27-Aug. 2).
Who can participate?
Because of the immersive commitment and intensified content and pace of the Summer Series, our Mt. Shasta Retreat has special prerequisites. The weeklong wilderness retreat is the final step to deepen and anchor the awareness that emerges through the previous workshops and the in-depth mind/body cleanse that starts in early July. If we are able to have an in-person Level 2 workshop, Level 3 and the Mt. Shasta Retreat will be open to all who complete the virtual Level 1 and the in-person Level 2. If Level 2 is held online, Levels 3 and 4 will be limited to those who have completed a previous Level 4.
How can I learn more about it?
