Deb Phelps and Allison Phelps
Due to extenuating circumstances, Donna Marie Cary will now be unable to attend 

Are you ready to awaken to joy?
Join us as we explore throughout the weekend
as we can remember and experience the joy of the Divine in our lives each and every day.

Learn to be present in your life, to love yourself and others,
to allow compassion and gratefulness.
All these lead to joy.

Our focus is on an insightful book on mindfulness called:
Awakening Joy: 10 Steps That Will Put You on the Road to Real Happiness.
Also, we will be incorporating ideas from the spiritual text, A Course in Miracles.

The purpose of all of our Retreat Weekends is to provide
a place of rest, renewal and contemplative reflection.

At this retreat:

  • We will explore the joy at our core through various ways including meditation, processes, journaling, and dialogue throughout our sessions.
  • Share with like-minded people in our group sessions
  • Creative expression session with Allison
  • Personal time for reflection
  • Group mindfulness meditations
  • Walk our beautiful hand-painted labyrinth
  • Singing Bowls Meditation
  • Beautiful natural setting!
  • One-on-one personal sessions are available
  • After the retreat is over, your learning can be further enhanced with our study groups and classes. In our classes, you will be supported with follow-up material, videos, optional video/phone meetings, and more (depending on what you choose).
