Casa Del Sol, a retreat center at Ghost Ranch, is an amazing place that is prepared and waiting to offer hospitality to those seekers hungry for more expansive solitude. You will have guided retreat time on “Soul Tending” with fellow/sister pilgrims.

Come for a week… or two or three. Let this be the summer you give yourself these things: gift of time, solace of silence, lasting connection of spiritual friends, peace of resting in the Divine Heart, feast of creativity attuning to the slow heartbeat of creation, delicious cuisine. Based upon my 2018 book,  Soul Tending: Journey into the Heart of Sabbath (Skylight Paths Publishing, Barnes and Noble/Indy/Amazon), you will explore solo and with other retreatants, themes of Sabbath, simplicity, the practice of creativity and prayer, hospitality, play, healing of nature and reimagining work. Invite your friends to take this journey with you into the heart of Sabbath.

Soul Tenders will be based at retreat house Casa del Sol which inspires the imagination and calls forth a deep solace just by the sheer magnificence of the soaring painted cliffs and intimate riparian canyons around it. You will find yourself revived and restored in community with human and non-human alike.

Please visit Ghost Ranch website, pray on it, meditate and take it to the dream time. Talk with your beloveds. This will be an amazing opportunity to deepen into the stirrings of your heart, in the high desert of New Mexico. Deserts have always been a place for pilgrims to transform their prayer lives and deepen into joy, so come….
