October 16-18, 2015 – Susan Drouilhet and Joy Fox will guide participants on a three-day intensive retreat, combining the meditative silent introspection of Vipassana Buddhism, with the energetic healing possibilities of our mutual chi field, within Qigong. . .The land itself, some of the oldest mountains on the continent, will play a role in our rejuvenation, along with the springtime’s blooming trees and wildflowers. And the feminine “grounding” effect of Wattle Hollow’s cob buildings is something you’d have to come and experience for yourselves….More Information
November 6 – 8, 2015 – Our own dear Geshe, our own beloved Tibetan lama/teacher from here in Fayetteville, a resident professor at the University of Arkansas, will again return to Wattle for a weekend retreat. This event will fill up, friends, so don’t wait until the last minute to sign up.More Information
…how much I loved the retreat! Wattle Hollow is one of the most amazing places I have ever been. The work you do both inside the human, and outside the natural world is non-pareil. Thank you so much. . . I learned so much to help me with my meditation practice, and have carved out time every morning to sit before going to work.
“I had a great time cobbing! What a wonderful way to create community with kind and gentle people in harmony with mother earth. I learned by doing, and now I feel confident enough to start my own cobbing project.”
“We really loved it…the vision we cherish of deep, deep ecology, natural beauty and…. a ‘ heaven on earth ‘. And without nourishment born of beauty we couldn’t rise to the needful height to be of real service in this divine dance.”
“Your place is wonderful- the perfect environment in which to relax, enjoy nature and allow for the spirit to rise.”
Love, Valerie (Hospice volunteer coordinator)
