      Inner Transformation: The Lenses of Poetry and Nature. An InnerLandscapes Retreat held at the Rivendell Retreat Centre on Bowen Island, B.C. Aug.26-29, 2012

      Date:  Aug.26-29, 2012

      Location:  Rivendell Retreat Center, Bowen Island, B.C., Canada   (map) 

      Group Size: max 9

      Join us from Aug.26-29 to explore the changing inner landscape of your life at Rivendell Retreat Center on Bowen Island, B.C.   Examine it in light of the deep teachings of poets such as Mary Oliver, David Whyte, Thomas Merton, Hafiz, Rumi, John O’Donohue, R.M. Rilke, and others. Reflect on the insights they offer while on guided afternoon group hikes through lush forested trails in the area. Look deeply into the structure of the changing landscape around you. Let it remind you by way of metaphor that you are part of a planet that is in a constant state of becoming. Relax into a more nuanced understanding about the role of change in your life, and about where you are on the curve of your own transformation. 

      IMPORTANT NOTE:  This retreat is based at a Christian retreat center, but the retreat agenda itself is not faith-based.  It will appeal to those who appreciate good poetry, reflection, and extended group walks in the rugged outdoors.    While the first walk will be a gentle one around Killarney Lake, later ones will be more strenuous, and will demand a reasonable level of fitness and endurance.   Those wishing to participate should be comfortable carrying a day pack for two to four hours on winding, uneven terrain with exposed roots, rocks, etc.    Those opting not to go on the extended walks may choose to remain at Rivendell Centre to read, write, meditate, or simply relax.
