About the Event

This is the first full Institute retreat ~ open to all members and friends ~ in 6 years.

We will have a key note address by Institute founder/director Amy Wright Glenn on Saturday morning and an optional hike (weather permitting) on Sunday morning. All participants will be able to choose between concurrent 90-minute workshops offered on Saturday and Sunday afternoons. Both Friday evening and Saturday evening will feature music, song, dancing, and chanting. We will gather 15 minutes from Asheville, NC at The Sanctuary  ~ 82 Sanctuary Road, Swannanoa, NC 28778.

The Sanctuary is the new home for the Center for Conscious Living and Dying (CCLD), an organization in partnership with the Institute. CCLD is working to reclaim, practice, and share a timeless wisdom: community support in end of life transitions. The Center for Conscious Living and Dying (CCLD) is organizing and training a diverse group of volunteer caregivers who will provide free non-medical end of life care as well as education on options to supplement medical hospice with support for the emotional and spiritual needs of families facing this universal experience. We are grateful that Aditi Sethi, MD ~ founder of CCLD is an active Institute member and teacher. She will be presenting on CCLD and a co-teaching a class on Music for the Dying for our retreat.

Register with friends. Bring your family! There will be inspiring/fun activities provided for children for select portions of the weekend + a music/dance/ritual celebration for all ages. There will be inspiring speakers, workshops, ritual, dance and music focused on nourishing/strengthening the call to hold space for birth, breath, and death.
