“If you welcome the ordinary Present into the spaciousness of your being, you begin to experience the ordinary grace of your being—in all its intimate wonder and ease. You experience the ineffable sense that you are easily, unmistakably, serenely here now, held in the timeless awareness of all that is happening.” Philip Shepherd



•How do we nurture our ability to be receptive to the light of spacious aliveness? 

•In what ways can we soften and surrender self-imposed boundaries so that we may return, again and again, to the spaciousness of our being? 

•Is there a living relationship between our sincerity and spacious being that invites us to explore the Present?

•Are there strategies that we unknowingly activate in order to remain separate from the inescapable wholeness of life? 

•Where does trust, love and intimacy come into play with spacious being?

•What does our mental inclination to organize life into categories and beliefs have to do with spacious being?


As a wazifah caravan of beloveds we will contemplate these questions and more through wazifah inspired dances, meditation, breathing practices, embodiment processes, silence and group sharing.

During the Sesshin portion, silence will inform us and be a guide as we share wazifah dances and attune to nature around us.  Social Silence begins Monday morning and ends Wed. breakfast.
