Private Retreats with Richard and Kathy at Moon Lake

Have you wished that you could go somewhere to get away from the constant distractions, tensions, and burdens of the unremitting doing that can swallow almost every day? Do you sometimes feel this need as a prayer in you, even a cry for help, to be able to step back, breathe and listen to what your soul is calling you towards? Do you want to intensely deepen your consciousness practices? Do you need a place to settle within yourself deeply enough to know how to address a major life-choice that is currently in front of you?

And you don’t want to do it alone, or at a silent, impersonal retreat. You want a retreat for time with yourself, with comfortable housing, good food and experienced teachers who can facilitate your issues and opportunities in ways that best serve you.

We offer you precisely this in our home at Moon Lake or in an available separate guest house. We welcome you for dinner with us upon your arrival and show you your accommodations. Our first vital opening session together begins after dinner.

Retreating here with us means that you have a session with each of us individually each day. For couples, all sessions are with us both. Based on what emerges in the sessions we will propose specific work, practices, or ceremonies for you to explore during your quiet times. On your last night there will be a beautiful, transformative fire-ceremony, weather permitting. Once here, you are entirely in solitude other than during sessions and the first dinner. We provide a variety of things for your breakfast, and delicious homemade (or catered) vegan/vegetarian lunches and dinners. You will receive an emergency number to give to family before your retreat begins and we will assist you in the event of unexpected travel glitches.

Retreats are at least 3 nights (2 full days) for individuals. Couple retreats are a minimum of 3 nights (2 full days). You must arrive no later than 5pm on the first day for dinner and for your first session with us. Departure is noon on your final day. You arrange all your own transportation. Moon Lake is 45 minutes from the Piedmont Triad airport, or 2 or so hours from Charlotte International airport.
