Ecology of Awakening Nature-Based Immersion

On this Immersion, Anita Doyle, archetypal-transpersonal guide/founder of IntegralBeing joins together with Kerry Brady, Ecology of Awakening founder and director, to support an embodied shift, out of the experience of separation and into what is ever-evolving and connected with all life. For five days we live outside, in the rolling coastal hills of Occidental, CA in a quietly spectacular ecosystem marked by active waterfalls, coastal prairie meadows, old-growth fir and oak woodlands that dwell in serpentine soils. We will draw from the new sciences, nature-based processes, listening meditation, inner and outer tracking, dream-work, somatic resiliency work, council, ceremony and other time-tested processes that usher us towards dissolving our borders and discovering our deepest belonging.

Night Wisdom: A Dreamwork Retreat in Sonoma, CA

Dreams are nightly invitations to discover and experience how Life, the deeper mystery, summons us towards the original, unconditioned wholeness that we are. From the heart-pounding wake-up calls of nightmares to the sweetly delicious dreams from which we’d just as soon not awaken, these nightly dramas can be understood as responses from the so-called unconscious to pressing questions our day minds haven’t figured out how to ask. This three-day retreat is an opportunity to explore, through direct experience, the startling depth of healing wisdom and fresh insight that dreams offer us.

By coming together and apprenticing ourselves to what is dreaming us, individually and as a group, we allow ourselves to immerse in surprising gifts of understanding and feeling, freeing us from barriers we often erect between ourselves and the world. Participants will leave with the tools to nurture and support an ongoing receptivity to, and partnership with, this wisdom of the night.

The retreat takes place at the Keen Ranch, in the rolling hills and Oak woodlands above Sonoma, CA. With abundant new growth and green shoots after the recent fires and winter rain, we will deepen our dreaming by walking and listening to the resilience of the earth. We will be nourished by local, organic food prepared by our fabulous chef, Nora, and, as a group, will begin to see how life in its unerring intelligence is always working with us in perfect call and response.

Update 2/17/28: This retreat is fully registered.
If you'd like to be placed on a wait list for cancellations, email Anita and let her know.

Facilitators: Anita Doyle and Kerry Brady

Group Dreamwork: Accessing the Wisdom of the Night

6 weekly two-hour sessions, beginning mid-January 2018, $280

Dreams are a bridge between the original, unconditioned Wholeness that we are and that in us which forgets we are That - and may suffer as a result. From the heart-pounding wake-up calls of nightmares to the sweetly delicious dreams from which we’d just as soon not awaken, these nightly dramas can be understood as responses from the so-called unconscious to questions our so-called conscious minds haven’t figured out how to ask. Dreamwork in a small group allows for immersion in a deeper level of mind than is normally available to us in waking life, and inevitably evokes surprising gifts of insight, laughter and an intimate sense of camaraderie with those others with whom we’ve come together to share and tend the Dream.

*All available dream groups are currently full*

“Re-Wholing Self, Re-Wholing World”

A Presentation by Anita Doyle

As things "heat up" in the outer world, literally and figuratively, the depth of our relationship to our dreams and inner lives may contribute more than we know to the healing of our culture's massive and increasingly lethal dissociation from Earth. In this presentation and conversation, we will be exploring the notion and restorative reality of the unconditioned Self in us, a theme truly core to personal and collective healing, and one we will pay particular attention to in the new round of dream groups starting in October. Free.
