“In out-of-the-way places of the heart,
Where your thoughts never think to wander,
This beginning has been quietly forming,
Waiting until you were ready to emerge…” John O’Donohue
Our lives can have recurring patterns of coming and going, of despair and hope, of receding and regrowth – much like the ebb and flow of the sea. And at the end of each ebb tide, there is a new beginning – a flood tide of renewal. Do you long for a new beginning: to listen to the sounds of the sea and the wisdom of your soul? Would you like to set a new course inspired by a life connected to self, others and our natural world? Would you like to spend time on a remote and magical island off the Maine coast? If so, come join us for a Circle of Trust® Retreat on Hurricane Island, ME to explore a new beginning where sea and stone and soul meet.
Hurricane Island is located in Penobscot Bay, Maine, in the midst of islands, lobster buoys and waves. For four days, we will settle into island time, listening to our inner cadence, in sync with waves, granite and gulls. Simple living and delicious local food will be a part of the landscape to assist us in unplugging from mainland responsibilities and worries to rediscover what we have lost and desire at our core. We will set our compasses to our inner souls through solo time on the island, small group conversations and deep listening in reciprocity with the natural world. Recalibrated, we will bring our courage back into the world of work and life with clear intentions to listen and do what best serves at this time of great need.
