Day with Spirit is a unique day retreat which offers meditation, spiritual healing, silence, hiking and spiritual discussions.
Please come at 8:30 AM as we start Meditation sound bath healing with singing crystal bowls and spiritual healing at 9 AM. Similar to an opera we do have a strict policy that the doors must close at 8:50 AM and remain closed until 10 AM - 11 AM. At 10 AM Guests may break (bathroom break) but are encouraged to break only if there is a need until 11 AM. When the sound bowls stop at about 10 AM please stay still for spiritual healing until we break at 11 AM for photo time. We will take photos of all the Guests together.
At noon until 2 PM there is silence. Guests are welcome to picnic anywhere, inside the house or outside and be still with nature. We have a couple of walking paths around the property Guests enjoy walking, which include the largest labyrinth in California and a native plant walk. At 2 PM we have a two-hour hike in the Santa Ysabel East Preserve. It is a one-hour leisurely flat walk and with about a 45 minutes time in silence by a creek at the half way point. Many people listen to apps on their phone of a stream with bird song. There is a different energy when listening to the real thing. Bring walking shoes. We will walk for 30 minute and then be still for 45 minutes. After 45 minutes we will sound a small Tibetan bowl to let you know we will start to walk back to the parking lot. All in all the walk is about 2 hours with the small drive there and back from the retreat center.
Afterwards, around 5 PM we have a spiritual discussion until 6:00 PM.
At 6:30 PM, the dining room is open to all. Please bring your own sack dinner. We will eat by the fireplace with classical lounge music. Guests can bring their own vegan food and snacks if they like and keep in our Guest refrigerator, or they can get food and snacks from our kitchen for love donations if they feel like.
-At around 7:30 pm we will start our campfire outside under the great stars of Julian where we will have another spiritual and philosophical discussion casually. Guests who want to play guitar or any instruments by the campfire are most welcome to add to the spirit of the night. Guests who prefer to enjoy our Jacuzzi may do so anytime.
At 9:30 pm there is noble silence quite time in the house and Day with Spirit comes to an end.
It is worth setting your alarm in the morning for this! We hope to see you soon!
