What does it mean to have a Spiritual Home; and what is Community? Human beings have always longed for a sense of belonging, a sense of home: yet what that might look like to each individual can be very different. Home is not necessarily a physical place, community is often spread across the globe.
Senior Trillium Teachers Sandra Glickman & Cielle Backstrom have spent a combined total of nearly 40 years exploring those questions within the Waking Down and Trillium Communities. They have been instrumental in creating innovative structures that helped lay the foundation for community; creating & teaching Training Programs for Teachers & Mentors and many new innovations to take the work forward into the future. They are an integral part of the Heart of our Trillium Community.
We here in Calgary are in the process of building community around our Trillium Work. We invite you to come and be part of our exploration and to join and become part of the Heart of our Community as we share time and experiences together in this Retreat.
Description: Whether you are new to Trillium or well along in your journey; this Retreat will provide you with an opportunity to:
- Explore on another level, what Mutuality means for you in your life
- Embody your Spiritual Truth more fully
- Expand your experience & understanding of what it is to live an Awakened Life…all within the context of community and open hearts.
The Retreat will include morning large group sessions (Gazing, Teachings, Sharing) with Sandra & Cielle, along with mentors, as well as smaller groups in the afternoons with a teacher & mentor. Optional evening sessions will also be offered, based on topics of particular interest to the teachers.
The Retreat will be held at the home of Francesca Blackstock in Calgary. We will help to arrange billets & accommodations if possible. Otherwise, there are a variety of hotels & B&B’s in easy proximity to the venue, please contact Francesca to inquire. email@example.com The sooner you request a billet, the more likely we can accommodate.
