Retreat with Yuval Ron
Sunday, August 9, 2015 - Friday, August 14, 2015
Episcopal House of Prayer, Collegeville, MN
Faciliataed at the Episcopal House of Prayer and led by Yuval Ron and Ward Bauman, this August retreat will focus upon the experience of introspective and ecstatic practices of four ancient spiritual paths: Zen Buddhism, Kabbalistic Judaism, early Contemplative Christianity, and Sufi-Islam. This unique experiential school will journey deep into sacred music chanting, movement, and spiritual contemplative practices, drawing from the hidden wisdom traditions of the East. These practices have been shown to alter the structure and function of the human brain. Each day the group will focus upon a different tradition, and sessions will demonstrate the deep commonality and love for life and humanity reflected in these spiritual practices. The activities are based on Yuval Ron's work with master teachers of the East and neuroscientists of the West. This seminar is experiential, and will not be lecture-based. The focus is on providing a deep spiritual healing experience, including walking, sacred movement, ecstatic chanting, meditations, storytelling and poetry.
