Tending the Light Within:

An Advent Retreat Celebrating the Everywhere


December 4-6, 2015

La Casa de Maria Retreat Center

Santa Barbara, California

Caryl Ann Casbon

As winter approaches there is a natural leaning to go within to seek the shelter of silence, explore our inner depths, and experience the presence of the Divine in our lives just as the holiday season ironically accelerates the external demands upon us.  This retreat, using a Circle of Trust© format based on the work of Parker J Palmer, offers the refuge of a contemplative setting along with opportunities for creative exploration and discernment to explore how we each approach our inner Oracles to discover fresh guidance, meaning, and grace in our everyday lives while enjoying the support of a trustworthy community.

 Based on Caryl’s recently released book: The Everywhere Oracle: A Guided Journey Through Poetry for an Ensouled World, this retreat will explore how we each, in our own way, “go to the Oracle” to tend the Light within. In large group, small group, and solitary settings, we will make use of stories from our own journeys, poetry and various forms of creative expression.  There will be time for silence, solitude and the opportunity to be a part of the Clearness Committee process.

 Please register early, as space is limited for this retreat!
