Our Choosing Conscious Elderhood retreat at Ghost Ranch exceeded my already high expectations. The highlight for me was my powerful experience during our solo day on the land. I know it wouldn’t have been possible without Ron and Anne’s inspired leadership and facilitation throughout, including (but not limited to):
- creating safe, sacred space and cultivating a strong trusting, loving community
- the careful thought, preparation and sequencing of the program elements
- our guides’ modeling of conscious elderhood in your authenticity, compassion, joy, and wisdom
- our guides’ ability to respond so sensitively to each other, each of us, and to unexpected challenges.
It was for me a powerful passage, with its beautiful rituals, its essential witnessing and support through the occasional rough patch, and its great rewards. Amazingly perhaps, the sense of a loving community and the internal transformation have largely stayed with me. Meg Newhouse, founder of the Life Planning Network
