I am changed. Ron and Anne's Choosing Conscious Elderhood retreat was transforming...a time of intense inner work, guiding, pushing, opening, inviting me into greater freedom to be, and return to, myself. These seven days enlivened my spirit,freed up long shut down possibilities, revealed new ones, touched my creativity with confidence, and released accumulated doubt and fear. The retreat cleared a path forme to break into my eldering journey with intention, allowing the elder within me to emerge into the light of this life. Ron and Anne so skillfully and compassionately offered a process ripe with beautiful ritual... well balanced between individual reflection, self examination, and supportive group sharing, and infused with wonderful humor that comes only with deep wisdom from their own knowing. The path ahead is now...there is no time, nor desire, to 'go back to sleep'.
