Who are You?


Who are You?
Who are You? The deep experience of the answer to that question anchors us in love and joy.

Who are you? 

Are you, your preferences, you interests, your opinions?  If so, how come these change throughout ‘your’ life?  Aren’t You something much more Core and Eternal than any of that?  Without fully recognizing and truly experiencing that Core of the Real You, how can you feel truly anchored and confident in your life?


Who are You?   That is the question to ask and answer before other important questions that need to be answered to create a rewarding life. Questions like:

What are you here for?

What is your purpose in life?

Even more of a concern for many of us is our “self-esteem” and our self-confidence.

Do you love yourself?  Are you confident in Who you are?

To love yourself you need to know your Self.  What is the Self?  What is the self? What is the Soul?

Do you know and clearly experience these different aspects of your existence?

To come to clarity regarding you true Self is often life changing, bringing confidence, peace and joy. 

This deep experiential knowing of Self is the theme of this year’s Annual Nature Healing Retreat or Quest.  A deepening process I have facilitated for the past 13 years on a 17 piece of land in the foot hills of the White Mountains, in Hiram, ME. 

Even without this powerful theme the annual Nature Healing Retreat or Quest is always at least a life shifting experience for participants if not life changing.

This year the experience will be anchored in answering this question of ‘Who You are?’ and from that answer will likely come much deeper insight, even knowingness of what you are here for and what your purpose in this life truly is.

The first two days of the Nature Healing Retreat or ‘quest’ as it is often referred to by past participants, are community days in which together we will explore the inner depths of consciousness experience our real Self. We will anchor into it, through a number of guided experiences including visualizations, meditations, breath-work, and inner guidance.

The solo days of quest will deepen our self-knowledge and the natural Self-love found within us, as we are held and nurtured in the arms of Nature.

Then on the final days we will all come back together and share the gift of who we are with each other and those who may also come to receive us.

This year’s Nature Healing Retreat (quest) will be held September 21 through 27.  There are still some spaces left. The fee is a sliding scale $750-600.

The Experience Of Consciousness


This morning soon after I awakened, I was experiencing my consciousness. It felt like what Meister Eckhart described as the EYE with which I see God and God sees me, being the same EYE. I used to wonder what that meant. Now when there is a relaxed state of being conscious of consciousness itself, there is a shift. The awareness is not identified as me. It ... Read more

Rediscovering Divine Love


As I sat down to "work" this morning at my computer, I became aware that I felt unfulfilled. I was less than joyfully serene. Life felt like it required an effort. I know it doesn't need to be like that. I know what it is like to feel carried through life, but that wasn't happening, and I wondered what I needed to do to make it happen. I ... Read more
