Transportation

You can fly into Boston Logan airport and get a bus from there to Barnstable on Cape Cod. The bus ride is usually around 1 3/4 hours. Let me know ahead of time and someone will pick you up. Both the Plymouth Brockton and Peter Pan buses come from the airport to Barnstable.  Tickets need to be purchased online ahead of time.  

You can rent a car at the airport or drive from home.  A car gives you more flexibility once you are here.

Place

The retreats are being held at 108 Susan Lane, Brewster, MA 0263, a beautifully crafted, comfortable post and beam home. There is a path down to School House pond where there is a kayak.  There is also a hot tub and outdoor fire circle. The house has 1 full bath room, one 1 half bath room. Typical of Cape Cod there are  two outdoor showers right next to the house. The house is mid-Cape, located 5 minutes from beautiful Cape Cod bay beaches and 20 minutes from Atlantic Ocean beaches.  There are a multitude of woodland trails that often lead to fresh water ponds.

Philosophy

These guided retreats provide an opportunity to move out of the ordinary into an awareness of a deep inner heart-centered spaciousness and peace.  Discover the untouched, unexplored crevices of your being, aspects of yourself hidden by normal routines and daily distractions.  What is that part of you that longs to stretch your wings and fly free?  Perhaps there's a belly laugh, a creative impulse, a moment of clarity, a voice  from the divine (infinite) that reveals itself.  

Can you give yourself permission to play, to embrace joy and be fully present in this moment?  A safe space supports the blossoming of inner awareness within a circle of companion explorers.  By partnering with Breath, Heart, Earth, the Heavens and the natural beauty of Cape Cod, you can strengthen your inner vision and be empowered to be who you really are safely with others.
