THE CREATION OF FREEDOM
8-Day Retreat with Richard Moss and Katherine Fellows-Moss
MOON LAKE, NORTH CAROLINA
NOVEMBER 4 – 11, 2023
There are two basic kinds of freedom: what is allowed to you from without, and what you dedicate yourself to within. The first is very important and a hard-won blessing if you live in societies that support a great deal of freedom. But essential freedom does not come from outside; it is a relationship with yourself first, and then with everything and everyone else, and it too is hard won.
Inner freedom comes into focus when you face the inevitability of death. Wisdom traditions invite “dying before you die”. Nirvana means extinguishing the light of the divided, separate self, like blowing out a candle, and all of us have moments of such blissful freedom. The affirmation, “I am already and always free” is a fundamental truth, but what is not free in you in also true. Creating an abiding, embodied inner freedom requires moving steadily deeper into the ground of yourself by choosing to turn, decisively but with gentleness, toward whatever patterns, beliefs, and imprints need to be seen, held with compassion, and then no longer energized so that they may die before you die. Inner freedom means taking your stand vulnerably in honest, unflinching, non-judgmental self-awareness. Most of all you take your stand with Love. Binding yourself to love Love becomes the path of unbinding your heart especially in your relational life.
This retreat offers you a dedicated period for intelligent inwardness to restore your sense of inner freedom, path, and purpose. Richard and Katherine will assist you in listening to how your psyche is speaking to you in your dreams and in other ways. They will guide insightful meditation and offer skillful mirroring. They know how to invite and support this priceless adventure of yourself. And they know the adversaries.
