Retreats – 2019 Public Teaching


Integrated Awakening:  I am here, I am open, I am awake®

A residential retreat in Watsonville, CA, February 24th – March 1st, 2019

This retreat, held annually in late February or early March, is currently the only public retreat offered by Jennifer, and is a prerequisite for possible entry into the Mystery School.

Registration will open on October 9th, with an email containing instructions on how to register. If you wish to be added to the list to receive this email, please write us at

Please note that this retreat fills quickly, so once registration opens, you should register promptly if you wish to attend.


In this retreat we will engage the two interweaving pathways that comprise any authentic journey of transformation:  the ascending pathway of realizing our awake nature, and the descending pathway of integrating that nature into our down-on-the-ground human embodiment and human life.

The retreat will include teaching, meditation and other spiritual practice, guided psycho-spiritual work, and individual process work.  We will also include the profound and sacred work of cultivating the subtle body, which is the bridge that allows our awake nature to come down to earth, and to manifest in our lives.
