Spiritual Retreat: Mindful of the Moment

A SpiritQuest spiritual retreat is available 7 days a week. The focus is on achieving peace and balance. In today’s busy world, people find themselves going on “survival” mode. Many report that they no longer have a sense of purpose. They have lost their way. Others report that they are experiencing a disconnect that leads to depression and anxiety. By participating in a spiritual retreat, our guests learn to slow down and bring presence into their lives. When we are present, we are more mindful of the moment. This way we learn to live in a state of gratitude. We are also more mindful of the lives around us and how to build richer more balanced relationships.
Our unique, non-denominational, retreats start with basics and build upon healthy principles.

Holistic Alignment

We custom design these programs specifically for our clients. Our holistic approach helps people find alignment for their minds, bodies, and spirit. Spirituality can be defined in many ways. We support any path chosen by our clients as long as it is integral, heart-felt, authentic, and compassionate. A spiritual retreat goes deep discovering dysfunction and assisting in re-alignment. Therefore, a few questions our clients might ask themselves are: What does it mean to live a life of right action? How do I let go of the ego? What can I do to feel comforted & connected? What is my purpose in life? How do I create better flow in my life? What actions can I take to keep me on my spiritual path? What will be my daily spiritual practice?

For Those Who Seek Change

We offer a spiritual retreat to those who seek to change their lives, or to take their spiritual practice to the next level. Thus, SpiritQuest puts an emphasis on meditation, yoga, mindfulness, right action, forgiveness, and compassion. Sometimes we all need a little “tune-up” and the SpiritQuest guides are trained to do just that. Our clients work one-on-one with a handful of gifted practitioners to determine the steps needed for achieving joy, bliss, and peace in one’s life.

The Art of Mindfulness

by SpiritQuest Staff Meditation as a principal  Most people think of a meditator as someone on a cushion in a quiet room. Or perhaps a monk sitting in the grass beside a gently flowing stream. They rarely think of being stuck in rush hour traffic as a form of meditation. For many practitioners, meditation becomes [...]

The Ego is Not the True Guide or Higher-Self We as humans are caught up in many daily routines and activities. Thus, we fall back into egoic mind trap and games. Thereupon, mindlessly letting our little “ego-self” take the reins and guide our behavior. Centuries have passed with metaphysicians and theologians exploring our minds. [...]

Walking a Spiritual Path is Important  Spirituality plays an important role in our daily lives. During the times of ancient cultures, those that chose a spiritual path understood the benefit of retreat from society.

Judgement and Compassion

2022-06-12T14:44:29-07:00September 6th, 2017|Categories: Spiritual Retreat|

The word “judgement” has many connotations in English. It can have both a negative flavor (as in someone that constantly expresses superiority over others) or a positive flavor (as in the rule of law and justice). Judging, comparing, and assessing are all aspects of our mind and the human experience. There is nothing inherently “bad” [...]

The Journey of Awakening

A Journey of Expansion and Perspective The journey of awakening begins with an opening and shifting of perspective. Toxic thoughts can rule one's life and cause a great deal of suffering. It is easy to become absorbed in those thoughts. It is as if the present moment disappears. Imagine your body sitting on a [...]

Manifestation of Your Heart's Desire By now, most people are somewhat familiar with the Law of Attraction – and I don’t mean getting asked out at the local gym, though it can work that way if that is what you intend to manifest.  Perhaps you have seen the film or [...]

Developing a Meditation Practice Some people wonder how to develop a sacred meditation practice - what do I need?  Does it take special skills - do I need to go to courses, read books, learn specific techniques?  How about prayer?  Is there a particular way to pray? How do I integrate prayer and meditation [...]

A Journey Within Ourselves A good way to understand the meaning of Spiritual Empowerment is to look at what it means to be dis-empowered. When we are not in our power, we are not in alignment with our purpose, talents, and gifts. In physics, the word “power” means: the amount of energy put out [...]
