Join with Don Quintenz and Ron Moor for an initiation into the Mysteries of the Forest, the luminous world that embraces The Christine Center and summoned its founders.
How do you feel when you are in the wild woods? Does it feel alive? Do you? In this retreat we will learn more about the seen and the unseen that dwell there, communing with the intelligences and spirit of the forest.
We all have the inborn capacity to experience far more than our time bound, left brain rational culture would have us believe. We have the ability to consciously experience Nature in all her myriad components as living, sentient being.
While inside the sheltering and welcoming lodge we will learn techniques of opening, of deep sensing, of devotion and reverence. When we step outside the forest will guide us into a heartful and nurturing level of communion. Together we will walk into the surrounding landscape in a practice of curiosity and attention that can deepen our engagement with the living world. The forest will be our classroom and our sanctuary.
We gather Thursday evening through Sunday noon. This gives time to let go of some of our civilized conditioning and enter a little deeper into the magic that is The Christine Center. As we open to nature’s time/space we can more fully sense and receive the many gifts the forest is waiting to give.
Don Quintenz is the recently retired Senior Environmentalist at the Schlitz Audubon Nature Center in Milwaukee. He has devoted his life to learning the big and the little secrets of our local ecology. For over 40 years he has led groups into the woods, prairies and wetlands. Teaching, revealing, inspiring.
For over 40 years Ron Moor has been exploring the mysteries of creation, bringing together the material and the spiritual, the seen and the unseen. He is a spiritual guide, energy healer and group facilitator. Before Don’s retirement they frequently co-presented at Schlitz Audubon.
