Caryl Ann Casbon


As winter approaches there is a natural leaning to go within to seek the shelter of silence, explore our inner depths, and experience the presence of the Divine in our lives just as the holiday season accelerates the external demands upon us.  This retreat, using a Circle of Trust© format based on the work of Parker J Palmer, is an invitation to give yourself the gift of three days in a contemplative setting at beautiful La Casa de Maria for nurturing your inner life and renewing your spirit while enjoying the support of a trustworthy community.

Based on the recently released book: The Everywhere Oracle: A Guided Journey Through Poetry for an Ensouled World, this retreat will explore how we each, in our own way, “go to the Oracle” to tend the Light within, and discover guidance, meaning, and grace in our everyday lives. In large group, small group, and solitary settings, we will make use of stories from our own journeys, poetry and various forms of creative expression.  There will be time for silence, solitude and the opportunity to be a part of the Clearness Committee process.

All program attendees will receive a copy of Caryl’s book, The Everywhere Oracle: A Guided Journey Through Poetry for an Ensouled World, as a part of the program fee.

Caryl Ann Casbon, NW Poet and Writer, author of: The Everywhere Oracle: A Guided Journey Through Poetry for an Ensouled World, also works as an interfaith minister, spiritual director, and facilitator through the Center for Courage & Renewal leading Circle of Trust© programs for clergy, health care providers, and leaders in education.
