Coming Home to Rest in Your Essential Nature: A Hybrid Retreat with Stephanie Lopez and guest Richard Miller

February 17—20, 2022

San Rafael, CA


What awakens in you through meditation is not the result of effort. It is a result of grace born from natural transformations that arise when you’re able to go beyond limiting beliefs, listen from your open-hearted presence, and welcome life as it is.  
This grace awakens your essential nature – an underlying wholeness that is so simple and familiar that it is often missed. As you rest more deeply in your inherent wholeness, there is a felt sense of coming home.
Join Stephanie Lopez on this 3-day hybrid (in-person and online simultaneously) retreat where she’ll offer accessible practices that reveal your essential nature. This is an opportunity to take deep rest from everyday responsibilities and activities to restore your sense of calm, inner stillness, and vitality. Meditative self-inquiry permeates every offering and moment of retreat. Learn transformational practices promoting health, resilience, well-being, and awakening, including:

  • Guided iRest Yoga Nidra Meditation
  • Silent sitting
  • Interactive dialogue
  • Gentle movement and breathing techniques that support deep relaxation
  • A comprehensive map for every stage of meditation
  • Practices supporting healing the life issues and limiting core beliefs you bring to meditation
  • Meditations that nourish inherent qualities of essential nature such as love, curiosity, compassion, equanimity, joy, and wonder
  • An understanding of how to integrate meditation into daily life

Explore what is alive and essential in each of us — an underlying wholeness and unshakeable ease of Being and Awareness that exists in every moment of life. Come home to rest in your Essential Nature.
