Advanced Practical Mysticism Retreat
With Walter Starcke & Eron Howell-Starcke
June 2-5, 2011
Join us for an inward delving retreat to explore and meditate on the Divine Process, and how it actually works as we work with it in our lives.
The Process has lead us to this year of responsibility to live the way of the Heart to transform our lives as we speed toward 2012. During this retreat we will follow this path to help clarify how important it is to live as Love and Joy to restore the natural order of Harmony to our own lives and that of the whole.
Have you felt a shift in your consciousness? Is your life out-picturing who and what you think you are? Are you a part of the global shift toward harmony or unknowingly part of the problem? During our time together we will share both the larger picture and the practical how to’s of being a deliberate creator. It is time to be a fully alive practical metaphysician. Give yourself this time in retreat to heal, to forgive, to express, to laugh, and to move forward along this path.

The workshop will begin on Thursday evening with dinner and go through Sunday Brunch at the beautiful Namaste Center nestled under large oak trees by a creek with an inviting swimming pool and hot tub.
Accommodations at the Namaste Retreat Center are limited to about 17 people sharing accommodations. We are offering a special rate of $150 for lodging at the center. If you have transportation and want a private motel room near-by, we will give you that information upon registration.
