RETREATS

The Awareness School Retreats offer a concentrated environment for accelerated transformation that is quite unconventional. We move about our day together in different activities designed to upgrade vibration but to also mimic regular life. We learn how to practice mindfulness, what it means to use expanded awareness and how to take that home.

Strengthening this kind of awareness helps you see into your own patterns and conditioning. We provide a template for your inner work to blossom and grow. This template plants the seeds for deeper self-observation to shine light on your own shadow.

The retreats take place in the beautiful Pacific Northwest where we work to develop presence through building, gardening, meditation, Sacred Dance, sound healing and group sharing.

You will experience a unique feeling here because of the conditions we intentionally set up. Our retreats range from long weekends to a week-long immersion.

"The retreats have become a measure by which I know myself. What comes out of the slowing down and listening is without exception, a clearer picture of the trajectory of my life and where my immediate work lies."

Lauren Kite

OPEN WEEKENDS

Our open weekends give you a chance to get a flavor for what we do here at the Awareness School. We open and close the day with meditation, use advanced awareness techniques through practical work on the property, utilize themes to direct our practice, and share our observations about what is occurring within us.

Accommodations include shared glamping, tent camping and group cooking in our outdoor kitchen. Enjoy our meditation experience amongst evening campfires, bird symphonies at sunrise, and the majesty of our trees.

The beauty of nature on the Pacific Northwest awaits you.

"One retreat is all it takes to want to keep coming back again and again. Each trip is unbelievably more rewarding than the previous. You will learn things about yourself that you would otherwise never have realized, opening up your senses to  the world and how you choose to live in it."

Connie Everett

"When I am at a retreat, I am reminded of a certain state of Being that connects me back to all the retreats I have been to. Once we all drop into the container held for us, I notice a different sense of time, sensory presence and connectedness. The growth we share together is inexplicable and exponential."

Morgan Brown

SUMMER RETREAT

Join us for a 10 day journey into the exploration of Self-Remembrance.

What allows us to better understand the fire of transformation and how to keep it burning? 

How do we stoke the embers daily through our own intentional effort?

We will be using fourth way techniques, the Gurdjieff movements, sound shamanic journey and nature immersion to discover the subtle art of conscious labor and intentional effort.

Remembering ourselves in the moment over and over brings us to the threshold of a deeper consciousness. Those moments bring new impressions and a reservoir of energy from which to draw. Find out what right effort looks like in terms of our inner landscape, and how that contributes deeply to Self-Remembering.

That Remembrance brings us home to the hearth of our Being.

Whether it is through gesture, movement, soul journey, or connecting to others, all of this can add up to creating a ripe environment for this discovery.

The retreat includes a practical work project, three hours of Gurdjieff movements each day, evening zikr and/or sound shamanic journey, plus the usual fun of campfires, outdoor cooking and more.

Immerse yourself in the beautiful surroundings of the Pacific Northwest. The accommodations are shared glamping, tent camping or nearby AirBnBs.

"The opportunity for self observation and personal growth that exists at these retreats is unparalleled. Not only have I had many of my own personal breakthroughs in understanding. I often go back and read my notes, writing and poems which are truly profound."

Mark Gadjos


"These retreats allow me to transform energy in a way I never thought possible. The environment helps me bring mindfulness to my every waking moment and brings joy into the mundane. Breakthroughs, release, unity, presence, pushing through fears and frustrations. Learning, always learning and deepening into me."
