Feedback from the Four Path Retreats was Overwhelmingly Positive!
Participants were enriched
by the teachings and a weekend of practices that can be integrated into each person’s spiritual journey.
a few comments from retreat participants:
“The retreat was
a sumptuous feast of movement, meditation, silence, breathing, laughter, passion, wisdom, music, dance, art and valuable tools
for the Via Negativa journey.”
"The retreat was truly
a satsang - a company of the wise. The lovely presence of each participant is itself a gift that nourishes."
"The long silence period
"forced" me to spend time thinking about things in my life that need attention. And while I don't consider myself "artsy"
at all (art as meditation sometimes stresses me out!) I loved the chance to make a prayer stick that did not require special
talent! Having the stick with me on the labyrinth helped me focus (I was reminded of a rosary, even though I'm not Catholic)
and led to my best experience on the labyrinth yet."
What did I enjoy about the retreat? “Lectures really brought the readings alive; the organizers and participants,
and the chance to be with like-minded people; the connection between spiritual readings and current political and sociological
realities, the goal of using smaller transformations to effect bigger ones in the world."
all the retreats I have attended in my life, this was the best!”
“I loved having the opportunity to be in retreat for 2+ days with Matthew Fox, Susan Evans, and the other participants,
and being able to listen to and learn from others' wisdom. I truly enjoyed the variety that the retreat offered - not only
lecture and discussion, but also sacred dance (and modern dance at the very end!), labyrinth walking, time for reflection
and journaling/poetry/haiku writing, nutritious meals, etc. It was a lovely, thought-provoking, and inspiring experience,
and very well thought out. Thank you!”
“In 25 years or more of attending retreats and workshops, this was among my favorites. I am very excited about
taking my learnings of the VP into my personal and professional practices”
