Soul School In-Person: Radical Authenticity as a Path of Awakening - Four Residential Gatherings near Ottawa (Three Weekends and a Four-Day Retreat)

Here is a rare opportunity to plumb the depths of who you truly are —  from the grit of your humanness to the grace of your vastness — within the ongoing support of a community of kindred souls. In each of four in-person retreats we will explore a different theme: What is the Soul?; The False Self; The Beast and the Beauty; and The Unnameable Vastness of Being.

The Mystery School: Wales

to Jul 14

The Mystery School: Wales

The Mystery School is a commitment to the radical authenticity that emerges at the meeting point between the vulnerability of our humanness and the vastness of our Being. The journey to this naked expression is rich with opportunities to lay down our defenses, to liberate currents within us that have been suppressed, and to open body, mind, heart and soul to the expression of our true nature.

Join Kim for a transformative immersion in mystical poems, music, movement and silence designed to melt your defenses, liberate the flow of your feelings, and free your unique expression — to write, speak, dance, sing, sound and be still.

Soul School 1, Virtual

to Jun 11

Soul School 1, Virtual

In this five month course, we will navigate the anatomy of the soul, each month through a different portal: What is the Soul?; The False Self; The Beast and the Beauty; The Essential Self; and The Unnamable Vastness of Being.

Poetry, music, presence, and the wisdom in our own bodies/feelings/knowings, as well as readings and videos from many sources ignite and waken us. This is an invitation to radical self-honesty, realness, curiosity and community that will at least disrupt who you think you are, and possibly leave you, as Mary Oliver writes, "a bride married to amazement."

The Virtual Mysterium: 24 Hours of Time Out of Time

An opportunity to step out of time for 24 hours and discover who you are. In solidarity with a community of kindred spirits and simultaneously in the solitude of your own home, you are invited into an immersion in poetry, doing nothing, writing if you choose, silence. We give up watches, technology, pre-ordained structure, plans. We follow the arisings of the moment. We Do Nothing. We open to what is.

Bard Circle One Retreat

  • Lough Lannagh Village County Mayo Ireland (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

(Open to members of Bard Circle 1)

This will be a 5 day retreat on “The Courage to Stop”. My intention is to have us inquire into and experience what it means to turn from the body-mind’s hardwiring to stay busy and vigilant, and, as Rumi says, “move into the emptiness” and through it into the truth of who we are. It is my intention to spend time both in practices that delve into and unravel our resistance to stopping, and stopping itself. There will be at least 24 hours of Mysterium, possibly 36, as well as poetry dives, soul-inquiry, breath work…

Death’s Door: Undefended at the Threshold, 6 Day Retreat near Philadelphia, PA

  • Pendle Hill Retreat Center (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

All the wisdom teachings of the world tell us, through one story or another, that the key to life lies in the manner in which we meet death within and around us. These offerings are opportunities to welcome all that emerges as we turn towards our own death, the deaths of our loved ones, and the “everyday opportunities to die” that abound in a life fully lived.

“A Broken Hallelujah”: A Poetry Concert

Each concert is an invitation to rediscover what mystics, poets and shamans have known for centuries: when you join powerful rhythms with the language of the soul, the mind can’t contain the experience and bursts open to an unsayable “Ahhh!” of pure wonder.

Profits from the concert will be divided between Kim Rosen’s charitable trust the SHE College fund for Massai girls and West Wales Domestic Abuse Service, Cardigan.
