Returning to the Mountaintop at Peak Foliage   -  Fall Retreat with Paul Ferrini

October 3 – October 8, 2018   West Dover, Vermont

Paul has had at least 7 retreats in this spectacular location on a mountaintop in southern Vermont.  When our numbers became too large for the Inn, we had to find other venues, but now that our retreats are smaller, we can return to our mountaintop home.  The Cooper Hill Inn has Panoramic views of Mt. Monadnock to the east.  The Boston Globe says it has “one of the most spectacular mountain panoramas in all of New England.”  It is truly a special place and we will be arriving right at peak foliage season, which is an amazing experience all by itself..

Please be sure to register soon as the Inn has room only for about 15-20 people. A $495 per person non-refundable deposit holds your place in the retreat, with the balance due by September 15, 2018.    Click here to register and make your deposit.  

The cost of the retreat including lodging and food are as follows:  $1895 triple occupancy, $1995 double occupancy, $2195 single occupancy.  

The nearest airport is Bradley International in Windsor Locks, CT   (Hartford/Springfield area).  Albany, NY is also an option.  
Please arrive by 5 PM on 10/3/18.  The retreat will end at 11 AM on 10/8/18.

The Inn will serve organic and/or locally sourced food and will accommodate those with vegetarian or gluten free diets.  Please be sure to let us know if you have special dietary needs.

What happens at a Retreat

People who attend Paul's retreats are strongly attracted to his work and have a sincere desire to integrate his teachings into their daily lives.  Mornings are spent listening to Paul's talks which focus on the concepts shared in his latest books.  Time is taken to deal with the specific issues and life challenges that people are facing in their work, relationships and spiritual practice. Experiential exercises and dyad interactions enable each participant to touch his or her pain, see the patterns of self-betrayal and dissolve the blocks to love's presence within their hearts and minds.   
     Afternoons focus on small group work using the Affinity Process Guidelines that Paul has developed.   The small groups enable each participant to deepen the experiential work that began in the morning.   The insights from the Affinity
Process are eventually shared with the larger group, deepening the collective understanding, compassion and bonding. 
     Time is taken in the afternoon for meditation, journaling or walking in nature.  Evenings feature devotional singing, sufi dancing, and Satsang with Paul.   When possible, yoga or Tai Chi is offered in the morning before breakfast.

Special Pre-Retreat Phase Two Healing Your Life Workshop with Waldemar Jercher

An in-person Phase 2 Workshop is required for students who wish to complete our Healing Your Life Learning Program.  The other phases can be done online.  Students who have completed the online requirements and have attended a previous retreat with Paul can graduate from the Learning Program by attending this workshop followed by the retreat.  They would then be able to apply to the Teacher Training Program.  We anticipate this workshop will begin on June 1 and end on June 4th so that there is a one day break between the workshop and the retreat.This break is important for participants who will also be attending the retreat so that they have time to rest and internalize the insights and emotions that arise during the workshop.   Participants will be able to stay at the retreat center on the break day.  More details will be forthcoming, but please let us know if you are  interested in attending this workshop so that we can reserve the right number of lodging and meeting rooms.

  Now you can experience Paul Ferrini's Last Spiritual Retreat in North Carolina  October, 2017 in the Comfort of Your Home.

  Wild Horses on the Beach at Corolla, NC.

Wild Horses on the Beach at Corolla, NC.

In this retreat, Paul Ferrini explores in depth how to set healthy boundaries with others so that we can say No to Self-Betrayal, take back our power and begin to actualize our full potential as authentic, self- realized human beings.  This was a small intimate retreat in a wonderful seaside setting on the outer banks of North Carolina.  The small group quickly bonded and the intimate setting encouraged heartfelt sharing from all participants and many inspiring interactions with Paul about important issues in our lives. This recording includes 17 video segments and over six hours of video instruction from Paul.   As several participants were
at the end of their 9 year cycles, Paul also takes time to talk about how to best honor the energy at the end and the beginning
of each cycle.   These videos are now available for download.   Click here for a preview.
     The cost is $120.00 for all 17 talks.   Click here to order the downloads.    Please note that a discount on these talks is available for participants in this retreat and virtual community members.

The shift into love consciousness happens as we move out of our heads into our hearts, out of the need to manipulate and control into acceptance and surrender. The result is that we struggle less and have more peace.
     Our intuition is awakened. We no longer need to try to figure things out in advance. We can let life unfold naturally.  We learn to move with the current instead of against it. Things happen when they are ready to happen and we are content to let them evolve without pressure on ourselves or others.
     We become more patient, more attentive to the gifts each moment spontaneously brings.  We dance, we explore, we play.  We enjoy the process and stop obsessing on the goal.
     We learn to let go of selfish desires and to look for outcomes that honor everyone. We forgive and allow ourselves to be forgiven.
     We learn to live in harmony with all beings.  We connect with animals, planets, rivers, mountains, with the incredible beauty and majesty of the natural world.  We become good stewards of the earth and compassionate caretakers of the life-forms that live upon it.
     No we are not perfect and will never be.   But we learn from our mistakes and hold our imperfection and that of others with great gentleness and compassion.We walk with an open heart and an open mind. We show up when we are needed. We extend our love to those who need it without conditions.

What you Learn at a Retreat

Every Spiritual Retreat with Paul Ferrini and every workshop with his certified teachers offers you an opportunity to identify and dissolve the blocks to love in your own heart.  You begin to understand and heal the deep wounds you carry, transcend your reactive behavior, and end your patterns of self-betrayal. 
     Of course, this does not happen overnight.  It takes time, practice and commitment.  But gradually healing takes place and you begin to step into your power and purpose as a human being. 
     Most of our students and teachers attend multiple retreats and workshops, knowing that each time they show up they take another step forward in their spiritual growth, learning to love themselves and others more deeply.  After a year of in-depth work, their inner light begins to shine through and their transformation is apparent to everyone.

Kristen's Experience

I revealed parts of my life that I had kept inside since I was a child. I was terrified to tell anyone for fear I would be viewed as being "bad". I felt just the opposite. I felt loved and accepted. There was no shame. I felt a connection with the people that shared their stories that weekend more than most of my longtime, closest companions.  It changed my life.
     Over the years I have gone to a few different counselors, starting when I was in my late 20's and although I have found some healing through those counselors there is no comparison to the healing I found at Paul's workshop. Paul has a way of connecting to everyone at the retreats where they know they are loved just as they are, they are perfect just as they are. That was such an empowering revelation for me. That retreat was like having years of therapy in one weekend. I am such a believer in this work that I have told all of my friends about it. And my husband is now doing the work.
     Through Paul's work I have learned to be more forgiving of myself and others. I have learned to tell my truth and live my truth and that each and everyone of us has our own truth to live which is different for everyone. When my life is lived from this perspective all fear and judgment of others disappears.
     I am striving to BE this way everyday. I am not there yet. This work will continue to expand my heart and my consciousness. I feel so blessed that this has come into my life.
