Thursday, March 29th 6:30-8:30 pm, Littleton 

Please join us for our monthly gathering of women held on the last Thursday of each month. We spend a short time in meditation, possibly some journaling and have a lot of sharing. Each month is organically unique depending on the needs and focus of our community. This month’s theme is dedicated to the concept of quiet. Below is a brief reflection on my own silent retreat. Keep in mind, we need not travel to distant places or withdraw for long periods, the stillness we seek, resides within. 

Bring your wisdom and your gifts as we learn from each other. Register today ($20), space is limited to eighteen women.

Soul Cleanse

The idea of a soul cleanse first came to me in 2017 after the holiday buzz leaves its usual hangover and a new year commences. In the process of life’s internal turmoil and external overload, I realized I needed some sort of interruption. My psychological and spiritual state was in need of a reset and yet I wasn’t quite sure how something like that could be accomplished. I had decided to take a vacation from my life but I didn’t want to escape and I didn’t want to be entertained. My goal was to travel inward. 

We become so habituated, our daily routines and unconscious to our own patterns. In listening to a friend’s experience of a vision quest, “Going up the hill,” as some American Indians call it, the plan for a soul cleanse began to take shape. 

My point of departure from the traditional vision quest was the element of struggle. I felt that life had provided an ample serving of suffering. As I approached the middle of my life, it was my hope to access more in the areas of ease, comfort and joy. I wanted to create the kind of experience that would disrupt my normal and yet not create further hardship.

During my three day soul cleanse, I simply courted the quiet. Quiet and stillness connect you to the place of knowing where uncertainty isn’t frightening and trust replaces the need to control. Amidst the noise and expectations, it’s important to construct the spaces where the whisper of our souls calling can be heard…and lived.

It was space that attracted me; the need to simplify with some way retreat from the chaos into the silence. Some part of me knew the answers were not where I had been looking and I needed to change course and begin again with new eyes in which to see the path.

I’ve included some of the pictures. Bring your stories, antidotes and discoveries to our March 29th Women’s Forum as we collectively explore the power of QUIET.
