We're Going virtual!

Announcing-megaphone-transparent-ca109790358

We no longer have the limitation of space -- and you no longer have the limitation of distance!


We are recreating our Spiritual Retreat as a virtual event, and your registration INCLUDES monthly virtual Zoom sessions between now and the retreat, where we come together to play with the concept of Questioning Unquestioned Answers while we build our community in our virtual  'Kitchen Table Gatherings!' (All registered participants have access to recordings from all our monthly gatherings.)

Registration includes all retreat events, Friday 6:30 through Sunday 1:00; all retreat materials; access to recordings of all our monthly 'Virtual Kitchen Table Gatherings,' and all handouts used throughout the monthly gatherings and the retreat.

By Popular Demand! 


The "Kitchen Table" is open again, and this time our focus is Questioning Unquestioned Answers! 


This special retreat, offered by request of those who have attended our past retreats, offers a special opportunity to be part of a unique group of folks (all of whom consider themselves more spiritual than religious) in an intimate and dynamic environment of exploration, study, and fun!

All retreat sessions will be held VIRTUALLY -- and we promise to create a warm, relaxing virtual environment that lends itself to inspiring creativity, open conversation, and spiritual growth!

In authentic celebration, people are willing to step out of their daily routine, drop their outer masks, and be fully present in the occasion: being a part (we) and also being apart (me). In the experience of we is the collective sense of family, inclusiveness, communion, belonging, connection, solidarity, a common purpose, vision, and values. We cannot be complete as individuals unless we are deeply involved in community.” (excerpt from Corporate Celebration)

What Others Say


"


You opened me up -- to be free and safe. To be vulnerable, to take chances with my thinking -- I think most were feeling this phenomena...


"


I liked that the facilitators were not stuck to a rigid schedule. You folks went with the flow of the group and that showed the experience and the maturity of the facilitators.


"


The shift in my thinking and my walk through my waking day is still palpable, and rich with peace and calmness.

Potential Topics for the Kitchen Table!

The Breakthrough Difference that Makes This Retreat Value-Driven:

In addition to the amazing facilitators (shameless promotion!!), the most powerful thing about this retreat is that YOU get to help create the content and participate in the process! 


Your facilitators have created a list of potential "Unquestioned Answers" that pique their interest, which are listed here. But we are asking you to tell us what YOUR "Unquestioned Answers" are, that you'd like to bring to the group discussion.


(Unquestioned Answers are those beliefs we've held for so long we think they are Absolute, but they really need to be questioned as we grow in our understanding and deepen our spirituality. So what's been on your mind? As we get closer to the date, we will review all the topic submissions and create a specific agenda! (Caveat: You have to be registered to submit your topics!)


Here are a few of the "Unquestioned Answers" from your facilitators and a few of the retreat registrants who have already submitted topics:


  • Prosperity Principles: Exploding myths and replacing them with Truths to ensure uninterrupted prosperity: i.e., the Law of Giving and Receiving; the Tithing/10-Fold Return Principle; You Can't Outgive God; Do What You Love and the Money Will Follow ...
  • Beliefs & Concepts about God and Christ:  i.e., I Am God; God is Testing Me; Everything is God; Christ versus Jesus; Acts of God; God's Will; Divine Order; Spanda ...
  • Questioning Consciousness & Mind:  i.e., Does the Universe and Observer Exist as a Pair; Can Consciousness Exist Without Matter; What and where is Mind; God is Revealed to Us Not Through Belief, but Through Spiritual Practices; Panpsychism; ... 
  • Déjà Vu, Déjà Vecu, Déjà Senti, Déjà Visite; Postdictive Bias: Do these experiences exist or are they all in our head?
  • Meditation, Prayer, Other Spiritual Practices: Are they really all they're cracked up to be? What are new techniques to spice up our spiritual practices?


Sound Interesting? This is just a starting list of potential topics! Once you register, you get to add your ideas to the mix! The retreat will include deep-dive discussions, inspiring interactive events, self-exploration, and opportunities for incredible spiritual growth! Fasten your seatbelts! It's going to be an amazing ride!
