Retreat as Ritual

April 10 - 17, 2021

Sarah Robinette & Shaney Aalbers have 13 years of experience, co-leading retreats together (Haramara continues to beckon a returning “Home”, year after year). Each instructor has accumulated more than two decades of ongoing study & teaching/industry experience. Sarah & Shaney each, have lead a number of  retreats solo as well as in collaboration with others, around the globe & within the U.S.

Having been exposed to a variety of retreat settings & offerings, the homecoming to Haramara Retreat Center, the staff, the accommodations, the glamorous yet mindfully considerate evolution of the property – all begs to be explored anew while offering an immense amount of supportive ease with the privilege to return. A re-set Ritual begs to be honored on the sacred land here.

“This is undeniably a nest where we hold space, & collectively we are fully held & supported.”

The map for the week includes: morning sunrise meditation/sit, 2 practice sessions (morning & afternoon), 6 hours of daily restoration (free time to fill with a number of active or relaxation options) 3 delightful meals a day, 24 hours mid-week dedicated to the exploration of sacred silence.
