At Loose Leaf Hollow you’ll have your choice of private room, walk-in shower, full kitchen, library and meditation room. And you can enjoy just sitting in our lush gardens, walking the roads, or exploring the beautiful forest that surrounds us.

VIRTUAL THEMATIC RETREATS
INTRODUCTION TO THE ENNEAGRAM
If you are ready to begin the spiritual journey from a life of compulsion to a life of contemplation — this day of retreat is for you. The Enneagram provides the best road map I know for that journey. And the Enneagram also acts as a “psychic catalyzer” to quicken your “spiritual metabolism” and give you more energy for the journey.
This special one-day format will introduce you to the essence of the Enneagram — and to the many ways you can apply it to your daily life. Once you access the energy and momentum of the Enneagram — they’ll be no stopping you!
Individual Consultations: 1-4 PM. Call or email to schedule your session.
Suggested Donation: $120
THE AMAZING GRACE IN AGING WEEKEND
Either the lightning has struck and you realize that you are getting older, or your parents are getting older and perhaps you are caring for them. Or maybe, you’ve retired from your job and are wondering, “Well, what do I do now?”
The Amazing Grace in Aging is designed to be a gentle flow of relaxation, reflection and renewal — all with the goal of learning how to engage with aging as a profound spiritual practice. Come experience the amazing grace in aging!
WALKING THE INNER CAMINO
Since the Middle Ages, hundreds of thousands of pilgrims have walked the 800 km Camino de Santiago across Northern Spain. It is a pilgrimage well-worth taking. The essential human pilgrimage, however, is not to Santiago — but rather, it is the inner pilgrimage to the True Self.
Buddha, Jesus, Teresa of Avila, Rumi, Dante, Kabir, Mary Oliver, Thomas Merton, Pema Chodron and John of the Cross are just a few of the amazing human beings from all traditions who have walked the Inner Camino ahead of us. We will use their maps for direction, and their lives for inspiration — as we accompany one another along The Way.
This a perfect retreat for people who want to take “the next step” in their lives!
PRACTICING WITH THE ENNEAGRAM
A retreat spent taking our understanding of the enneagram to a deeper level — with an emphasis on The Alchemy of Relationship. The retreat will integrate conversation and deeper exploration of the enneagram via the practice of meditation. This retreat is perfect for folks who already know their fundamental enneagram temperament, but want to know how to practice with it.

SITTING WITH THE WISDOM JESUS
A retreat that focuses on Jesus as a Wisdom Master. We will be contemplating the parables of Jesus, the Aramaic “Lord’s Prayer” and “Beatitudes,” and The Gospel of Thomas.
CONTEMPLATION IN ACTION ( or “How to be in the world, but not of it!”)
A retreat for people who feel a strong commitment to activism and justice, but also want to avoid burn out and overwhelm! We will be practicing contemplative sitting and writing, and learning from icons of “contemplation in action” such as Buddha, Jesus, Dr. King, Thomas Merton, Dorothy Day, Thich Nhat Hanh, Pema Chodron and angel Kyodo williams.
