“Your true nature is that of infinite spirit. The feeling of limitation is the work of the mind. When the mind unceasingly investigates its own nature It transpires there is no such thing as mind. This is the direct path for all.”

– Ramana Maharshi

Finding True Fulfillment

Santa Sabina Retreat September 2019

4 Day Residential Silent Retreat with Miranda Macpherson

Santa Sabina Center
San Rafael, California
September 12 -15, 2019

Love, peace and joy, is the natural condition of your heart at rest in Pure Being. Yet commonly we live on the surface of ourselves, disconnected from the font of inner nourishment that is always present to help nourish, refine and expand us.

This retreat is dedicated to relaxing the chase for “more”, unwinding unworthiness, spiritual resistance, and anything that limits you from finally relaxing, feeling satisfied and truly being at peace.

These four days at Santa Sabina offer a rare opportunity to leave the outer world behind, and journey into into the deepest longings of your heart. Together, we will practice ego relaxation with the important themes of your life, compassionately learning to get out of our own way and truly listen, supported by a dedicated field of silence (when not in session). At every stage of the spiritual path, there is Grace to help you heal, deepen and thrive. Come if you are ready to drop more substantially within and let your inner cup be filled.

Through holistic inquiry, meditation and devotional chanting we will:

    • Recognize Grace as your unchanging ground
    • Receive the love that ends the sense of lack
    • Open to the Presence that dissolves your obstacles
    • Abide in the silent nectar of your vast heart
    • Find a more easeful, fulifilling way of being in this world form a consciousness beyond it

    The format is experiential and powerfully transformative. Miranda will share new practices to help you function in daily life from inner guidance rather than conditioned patterns of mind. She will guide you on how to surrender, ask and listen, and give expanded teachings on the practice of meditation, devotion, prayer and self-inquiry.

    The Setting: Santa Sabina has been an active spiritual center for contemplative practice for generations, and the atmosphere is rich with a prayerful presence. With beautiful grounds, fabulous hiking trails, delicious healthy food, and a supremely comfortable group room and accommodation, Santa Sabina center offers us a nurturing, beautiful and a affordable container for an intimate group retreat.

      “I felt blessed every time I sat in front of Miranda — her ability to transmit the Boundless Love she teaches comes through the screen. Through this course, I experienced a deep and abiding transformation in my perspective on a difficult situation. My heart is more open and I am able to forgive even though the actual resolution is still not forthcoming. I am so grateful for this deeper ability to trust and abide in my true nature, Love.”
