Fall Silent Meditation Retreat

October 4-6, 2019 Friday dinner through Sunday lunch

Welcome to a weekend of relaxation, meditation and insight in the natural peaceful beauty of Pumpkin Hollow . The wooded trails, the stream and falls, the labyrinth and meadows all beckon us to silence and introspection, helping us to connect deeply with our Inner Self. Take time for a 'gift of the spirit'.

Quieting speech and mind, we will seek to contemplate that which is beyond thought and listen to the voice of the silence within.

Together we enjoy meditations, nature walks, yoga and a campfire, as well as, time for private reflection. Friday night we meet to share our aspirations and to affirm our group intention - and then begin our silence. This nourishing space of silence we share until before lunch on Sunday.

The Mystery and Power of the Heart: Advice from Spiritual Teachers of all Times featuring Juliana Cesano, NE Theosophical Federation

August 30 - September 1, 2019 Friday dinner through Sunday lunch

The Mystery and Power of the Heart: Advice from Spiritual Teachers of all Times

Among the many valuable esoteric teachings offered to humanity by occultist and philosopher H. P Blavatsky, was one that spoke of the heart as the seat of spiritual consciousness. In like manner, mystics from traditions around the world, past and present, regarded this center and the practices associated with it, as a major key to true spiritual unfoldment. During this weekend, we will explore their shared wisdom and direct experience of this reality, as well as their recommended practices.

Juliana Cesano is a second-generation Theosophist and has been actively involved with the Society’s work for over 20 years. She spent two years volunteering at the international headquarters in Chennai, India, before becoming a staff member at the Theosophical Society in America.
