Revelation. It’s such a BIG word, and it usually comes complete with fanfares of trumpets and hosts of angels. But on this retreat I’m inviting you to explore a simpler and more intimate sense of revelation - simple, yet profound; what would it be like to live the revelation of each moment? To approach each moment unknown, and allow it to reveal itself? To enquire into each moment, each relationship, each feeling? (... not as a dry, intellectual questioning, but as a juicy, vibrant, hands-on exploration?)

This is what I call Enquiry. It’s both a loving process and a very creative one. and it starts here, where we already are, when we are willing to let go of what we think we know so that what’s actually here can reveal itself. It’s an attitude of curiosity, a willingness not to know and an interest to find out. It’s an open-ended, open-minded approach to life, to every experience, and to yourself. It’s an availability to ‘this’.... ‘this’ which is actually being revealed right now. (Whether this is the way the rain feels against my skin, or an insight into the patterns of my own behaviour; whether this is the arising of love in meeting another or suddenly being touched by how my own fear is preventing that love). It’s as simple as the way sunlight reveals a landscape at dawn – as darkness recedes and what is actually here can be seen. But it does need a willingness to see, to really listen with your whole being.

On this retreat we’ll enquire into what’s true using words, movement and colours. We’ll explore reality alone and with others. We’ll listen for the still, small voice both in nature and in the studio. We’ll open an intimacy with the unknown in any and every moment and start to live the revelation of who we are, rather than the stale self-image of who we used to be, or who we think we should be (one day, if only...)
