Silent Retreat in 2017 at the Wildwood Retreat Center in Guerneville, CA

with Jyoti and Darlene Hunter

 November 16-19, 2017

Dear Friends, Relatives and Community,

We have been asked to continue to hold Silent Retreats in 2017 by those who have attended them this past year. Because of this request, we will be offering 2 Silent Retreats – 4 day weekends that embrace the Spirit of Sacred Reciprocity.

We have found that the energy of reciprocity offers renewal, balance, and expands the field we serve touching our personal lives, as well as the global work we are all devoted to. The changes that are moving through us all and that which we love dearly are BIG!! Stillness is good medicine for us all!

We invite you to join us, to dip into the silence and commit to caring for yourself and that which you serve. We offer this retreat for each of you to follow your own meditation practice during the day and a channeling with the Ancestors at night. Take this time of silent contemplation to deepen the clarity and connection Spirit is asking from us in this moment of great transformation on Mother Earth.

“The New Year is not something before us, it is something hidden within us trying to find the light. Don’t wait for the right gift to be given to you. Look inside instead and find the Holy message trying to be opened.” – Michael Meade

The formula she offered is full and very rich. Those that have attended these Silent Retreats reported it was a moment that dropped them into a deeper connection with their Soul; a deeper connection to their work in the world through the Beingness of themselves.

As the Dalai Lama told us several years ago, “It is good to pray, but now we must put our prayer into action.”

This is the action called for now!!

So come listen to Spirit, replenish your body and soul, eat wonderful food, take healing walks on the land, treat yourself to some amazing body work, immerse yourself in the saline pool and relax in the hot tub…

We look forward to meeting you there,
In gratitude,
Jyoti, Darlene, Valerie & Margin

“In the end these things matter most.
How well did you love?
How fully did you live?
How deeply did you learn to let go?”

Dear Friends and Relatives,
Please excuse our late notice to you, but we will not be holding the Silent Retreat that was scheduled for June 22nd-June 24th. Due to overbooking issues at Wildwood, we have had to cancel. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you. We will be holding a Silent Retreat in Prague, September 28th-October 1st. Also, we will be holding a Silent Retreat in the Seattle area the end of October. Our next Silent Retreat at Wildwood is scheduled for November 16th-19th. Please watch for more information coming to you soon about the October Silent Retreat.

In these moments of challenge and great movement, cultivating Silence is a welcomed and necessary medicine for us all.

We look forward to the teachings such medicine brings to us, and embrace the knowledge that is awakening through this practice.

Many blessings,



I want to let you all know how grateful I am for the way you held the Beautiful, Sacred container at the Silent Retreat.  I am so honored to have been a part of it with all of you. ” – Lori
