When you’re not against anything or anyone, you start to feel the presence of peace. And being for yourself does not mean being against anyone else. Since we are all one, being for yourself is ultimately only being for everyone else in your life. When you awaken to that truth and begin to live it, life will start opening for you, and joy will flood into you.

Beloved With~In Weekend Retreat


We hold the answers of Love with-in. Do you know the upset you experience is only information? This is the very information you are looking for – these are the things that are keeping you from knowing the Beloved with-in, and nothing is missing.

Letting go of looking towards others for your answers, knowing you hold the infinite love with-in can sound lonely and confusing. When you know what you are and are of, you know all the answers are held with-in the Beloved. You know yourself as whole when you become attuned to the Beloved you in God. Becoming attuned to God is the answer. Open your heart and listen.

Having no fear of the shadows with-in begins to open you to the light. Inviting the Light in and being present with these gifts of discomfort will bring you the freedom you are seeking. The comfort sits on the other side of the discomfort. Your creative self sits in the center of the unconditional love. When you are willing to love the negativity to freedom, embracing change, you will experience the doors of Heaven with-in opening in the infinite that is in the moment. All is possible, all is here now. You must open your channels to the song of God that is singing with-in you.

You are the Beloved of the Beloved. Be in Love, Be the Love. You already are and do not know it.

Come join in exploring this Beloved Light you are made of. Letting go of the things that are deafening your hearing, your knowing the Beloved that is in all.

There will be meditation, processing and attuning with the light. Unfolding the delights you are holding hidden in the shadows. This is where the answers are waiting to be freed.

Be open to you in the Beloved. This is an infinite journey of love.

There will be beach walks and journal writing.

I am once again excited to hold and house our retreat at The Cottages in Carpinteria California, where we can all be together holding the light.

Staying at the cottages for the weekend is encouraged but not a must. Residing at the cottages, allows you to step away from your day to day patterns, giving yourself completely over to the loving support offered in the retreat atmosphere. If you are unable to retreat at the cottages, you are still welcome to take part in this light filled weekend.

This is a beautiful, playful cluster of bungalows located in the small town of Carpinteria, California, just a few miles south of Santa Barbara and few blocks from the beach.

Cleansing Love


There is a light washing over the Soul keeping perfect Love protection.

When you are reaching upward in your loving willingness to let go, reaching into and being met become a dance of oneness. Like the Rain and Sea, it is all the same yet, we experience them differently. They both are wet, one is deep, full of dimensions of dark and light and one is pouring into this ocean, filling it with more. There is a constant cycle happening, resurrection each time anew.

Movement is always available, where we focus is what we experience. Choosing to lift and allow the light to pour over  and in you seems less than the ocean we might be used to sitting in. The truth is the light we are reaching to and receiving is filling  you already. There are always new levels of receiving and dancing within this happening.

Choosing loving yourself within spirit can be cleansing. While this cleansing is happening it can seem impossible to move out of the old waters. Relax, choose the loving for you. (Trust in the light of God to handle what seems impossible.) If we look to the dark water for our answers, it is shutting out the rain of love and light waiting to assist you. You must open your heart and arms to receive.  You must ask and be willing to share.

“I do not love you because of you, I love you because of me.”J.R.




Love Abundance



When you are living in Grace, you release the self-centered concerns of the ego and you disregard what moves you into upset and suffering. Instead you turn to fill yourself with God’s abundance, the keynote of which is loving. – John-Roger, D.S.S. with Paul Kaye (From: The Rest of Your Life, p. 195)

Uplift ~ Always ~ In All-ways ~


Be open to what is uplifting here and now. What may appear to be the mundane at first glance can be the very step that is waiting to give you the altitude you are in need of. Change your limited attitude from lack to play in abundance and suddenly you can see all the uplifting steps that are available and waiting to assist you. You choose how you would like to proceed with what is here now. As you choose in the innocent and willing heart, safely in the unknown to know, you will be met in the lightness of the moment.

All will light up with loving abundant possibility. Keep your innocence in your expansion. Be free to fly and open to all the assistance that is present.

Let go ~ Love ~ Be Present in the Light and Love that is here and now
