A Peaceful Way Women’s Fall Retreat

With Jane Booth Robertson

October 24 -October 26, 2014, Renewal Retreat Centre, Belgrave, ON

The Voice of the Spiritual Muse

Writing as a Spiritual Pursuit

 07-homepage-02

 

A time to open to the call of the Spiritual Muse

A space for creating sacred imagination

A weekend of relaxation to commune with the heart of nature.

A magical time where our spirits meet and lift us into a wonderful space

Welcome to a very special fall retreat at the Renewal Retreat, a lovely five bedroom log home, Belgrave ON (near Wingham) The calm, natural setting complements our retreat’s purpose to offer a weekend gathering for relaxation, serenity and inner peace.

When women gather something magical happens – our spirits soar, our hearts awaken. We will explore the Voice of the Spiritual Muse and how we can reveal its wisdom in our words and images. We will answer the call to write, to self-express, to self mastery.

Within each of us is a writer, an artist, a creator, a part of us that expresses our deepest thoughts, emotions and new ideas…new consciousness. Few of us take the time to really listen and open to the guidance within or if we do listen, we seldom record or act upon what we hear. We think we cannot write, paint or do anything artistic. Sometimes we feel stuck and unable to hear or to think of anything new or fear the next step. Often we hesitate to express our Self, our true Essence.

This retreat is not about teaching how to write a book or how to publish a book or sell an artistic project, but perhaps will birth a story, image or picture that has been waiting to be revealed. You will receive some creative writing guidance. You will find your own key. You do not have to be a ‘writer’ or artist to participate It is an opportunity for you to allow your creative consciousness to open so the words and images that lie within you may be heard, to give them a voice, to live your creative potential. It’s about experiencing your mystery and expressing your mastery.

Each of us has a Spiritual Muse to assist us. When we meet our Spiritual Muse and step into our creative light, our lives lift to new levels of consciousness. Our lives transform in new and magical ways.

Whether you’re a seasoned writer/artist, working on a project, or just starting out, the Voice of the Spiritual Muse retreat will deepen your creative experience and awaken you to new skills, new stories, new images and a renewed confidence in your innate gifts and wisdom.

Welcome Guest Author Tara Lemieux

“Once the soul awakens, the search begins and you can never go back. From then on, you are inflamed with a special longing that will never again let you linger in the lowlands of complacency and partial fulfillment. The eternal makes you urgent. You are loath to let compromise or the threat of danger hold you back from striving toward the summit of fulfillment.” ~ John O’Donohue

Mornings are the very best time for me – this blissful solitude reaching me before the ‘thinking’ ever settles in.

Alone, and just simply being…I dare say, is the most wonderful feeling of all. Where beliefs may be formed before judgement steals them away?

When we have this opportunity to stay…we find there’s really nothing more than our own self getting in our ‘selfly’ sort of way.

Maybe this is the key to our awakening? When we realize tucked inside these moments right here, is the very spark that lights Passion’s eternal flame?

My dears, when we are awakening…even the softest of breaths, has the capacity to take on an entirely new meaning.

And, when we are awakening…we find that even these, the emptiest of moments, are filled with quite nearly everything.

When we are awakening…we realize, the morning is here to greet us each day, with the knowledge that we are so perfectly limitless.

Much love, and many blessings, my dears ~ and know, that each day I am most grateful to awaken to you.

So lovely Tara, deep appreciation to Tara Lemieux for being our Guest Author today.

Peacefully, Jane

Embracing Me

 

Embracing Me

By David Ison – Stories 3.9.14 Embracing Mbeautiful-waterlily-images-for-profile-share-2-09ac3

All my life I have felt and have been surrounded by a presence. Unseen, yet always there, I have, at various times in my evolution subscribed this presence to being God, the Universal Life force, the pattern, the Unity Function, the Essence of Creation itself.

Amazing things have always happened to me throughout my existence. I have died, come back to life, I have made fortunes and lost them, sacred texts have fallen into my lap, undiscovered knowledge has been consistently revealed. My mind has always been pointed into a multileveled, multilayered and multifaceted SINGULAR direction. Always stretching and reaching for another layer of the TRUTH. Pure objective truth. I have been driven by this unseen force to uncover, to discover and recover this Essence of truth. And I have indeed, been protected every step of the way. Guided through minefields, healed and thrust out again and again, never veering, always and forever rolling, moving toward the true beginning of all things, toward the shape of the creative essence itself.

Today, I stand here in awe of this protection, of this gift of immeasurable wealth. I feel its presence stronger than ever, gaining in strength and solidity, gaining in gravitational magnetism, gaining in its natural state of wholeness. This presence is not God, is not the devil, is not the divine Essence. It is not external, it is not coming into me from some outside source. In fact, the presence is something even more amazing, more pure, more Essential. IT IS ME. That’s right, this presence is my whole self, my entire being, my Essence, My Essential Self. It is within me and is always there, ever present, like the beating of my heart. Selflessly keeping me safe, endlessly guiding my steps along the path, continuously giving me life, love, wisdom, strength and understanding.

It is time to honor the Essential Self with the full recognition of its presence. Time to give back. Give back to ME. Time to celebrate the Essence that is always there. The Essence that is in resonance with all things holy, with all things true, with all things unchanging and with all the elements that make up the Creative Pattern of the Essential Unfolding nature of EVERYTHING.

Let us stand in the embrace of the Presence of the Essential Self, let us lose the shackles of the endless stream of metaphorical designs and designations. Let us free our minds from the chains of desire and the human tendency to continuously, endlessly seek confirmation from without, from the external. Let us finally, now and forevermore, look within, welcoming OURSELVES and nothing else, into our hearts, our minds, our spirits and our souls. Let us learn to listen to this eternal Essence within, hearing the songs it has to sing, hearing the stories it has to tell and at last, let us learn to receive its wisdom and its truth.

The Essential Self is the protector. It is the healer of wounds. It is the spinner of the web of our own individual lives. It is our sense of wonder and our endless source of creative energy, our very imagination. Lastly, let us simply sit. Sit quietly. Sit with an open mind and open heart and simply receive and then with a calm and a quiet mind, let us simply learn to say THANK YOU.

My gratitude to David Ison for sharing this article.

Peacefully, Jane

A Breathless Moment

“God is the experience of looking at a tree and saying, “Ah!” ~ Joseph Campbell

Whenever I need a moment of reflection, I look at this picture that I took while visiting Scotland a few years ago.  The beauty and stillness of this reflective loch (lake) still leaves me in awe and like Joseph Campbell I say ‘Ah’…

The Devotional Light

Hart 2 dancingeternity

Artist Francene Hart www.francenehart.com

A Meditative message – The Devotional Light

The Devotional Light – a loving heart, a center of harmony, a meeting of souls

“I am devoted to you and see only your perfection, beauty and grace.  In Devotional light we meet – you and I dance as one.

All life extends from that devotion in lightness ever present.  In devotional light, there is no resistance to love. Only devotion to love, to purity, to union unfolds. An ever lasting devotion of living, of courage, of being fully present, to know that nothing is beyond, all is present, all is revealed in every moment.

The devoted one, the loved one is you.  God is devoted to you.  You are devoted to God.  Your soul is uplifting to unconditional eloquence, beauty, peace, harmonic spheres.  Do you hear them ringing, revolving, calling to you? In devotional light there is the freedom to love, to be of service, to reveal love to all. From that devotion, life extends and creates a peaceful way.”

May devotional light flow through my heart to you,

Peacefully, Jane

I Feel Your Love

Slide1

 

As my heart awakens in each moment,

I feel your love

 

As I follow my pathways of life,

I feel your love

 

As I smile brightly at the Robin’s morning call

I feel your love

 

As I share with others the gift of laughter,

I feel your love

 

As I pray each evening to the stars within,

I feel your love

 

As I allow Spirit to guide me through the unknown,

I feel your love

 

As I live my truth of love and compassion,

I feel your love

 

As my light radiates and flows in endless waves,

I feel your love…and we are One
