Mark’s Personal Invitation
Being on journeys like this with you is the blessing of my life as a teacher. Nothing is quite like the space of tenderness and truth that arises when we are comparing notes on being alive.
In our time together, we will explore how our authenticity and inner practice can ready us for meaning and grace. We will unfold how our sincerity and devotion can help us to survive and thrive. By saying yes to life, we’re led to the wisdom that waits in our heart. During this retreat, we will explore the practice of being human as an applied art of spirit while unfolding the dynamics we all encounter in our struggles to enliven and inhabit a full life.
In these sessions, I will open a heart space through which you can better understand your own relationship to how rare it is to be here at all and how precious, real, and raw our tether to this life and each other. The gift and practice of being human centers on the effort to restore what matters and, when in trouble, to make good use of our heart. No one quite knows how to do this, but learn it we must. Our path to love and truth depend on this journey.
Throughout the ages, each soul is called to be who we are everywhere, to hold nothing back, and to have our love move as quickly as light. Humbly, there are no answers, only authentic ways to listen and hold each other. This is the journey to an authentic self.
In our time together, we will focus especially on the threshold that life calls us to cross to be as alive as possible. My hope is that through these days together you will deepen your conversation with life. That through your own path of obstacle and surprise, you will be opened to your gifts and become somewhat freed of all you carry.
As an invitation, let me share this poem of mine:
Keep trying to hide and in time you become a wall.
Keep trying to love and in time you become love.
Our journey on Earth is to stop hiding, so we can become love.
Everything else is a seduction and a distraction.
Courage is staying true.
