Rest and Ritual Retreat
Ghost Ranch Education and Retreat Center
May 15-19, 2022
Rest, re-energize, and discern after four full conference days in this minimally-programmed retreat.
Ghost Ranch is just one hour north of Santa Fe. Here, huge cottonwood trees border the Rio Chama, mountains rise in the distance, and the nearby landscape soars and swoops with cliffs and table-topped mesas, offering vistas that naturally lead you to wonder and contemplation.
We’ll able to process and ponder the rich teachings and experiences from the conference in sharing circles with fellow attendees and SDI staff, or in solitude.
We’ll be invited into morning and evening storytime and teachings around ritual with Native elders around the fireside.
We’ll have lots of space for spontaneous spiritual companionship to arise.
We’ll have opportunities for landscape painting, horseback riding, guided hikes, and behind-the-scenes museum tours. Yoga will be available, as well as body work, contemplative canoeing, and a tour of Georgia O’Keeffe’s home and studio.
Pat McCabe (Weyakpa Najin Win, Woman Stands Shining), our Conference Ritualist, and Stephen Picha, a ritual and logistics elder trained in nature-based retreat work, will guide us as we experience the simple and the deep: baking and breaking bread, walking on the land, creating transmission and empowerment rituals.
Optional add-on activities will be available for an additional cost:
Registration for these add-ons will be available to all registered participants in advance.
SDI will provide shuttle bus transportation to and from Ghost Ranch.
