Spirit, Sound & Silence: A Day of Healing & Renewal

Spirit, Sound and Silence is a special day of healing and renewal. Activists, organizers, community caregivers, and folks in need of replenishment are especially encouraged to attend!

Hosted by OneLife Institute, the retreat is facilitated by Rev. Liza Rankow, and supported by the inspirational music of Destiny Muhammad, the "Harpist from the Hood." Come enjoy a labyrinth walk, guided visioning process, healing meditation, opportunities for community sharing, and times of deep silence -- all in a beautiful and peaceful natural setting.

Tuition is sliding scale $35-$100, with scholarships available (no one ever turned away for lack of funds). Please bring a journal, a potluck item for the shared lunch, and anything needed to be comfortable for the day.  Also, as we strive to be more "green" we are asking guests to bring your own re-usable water bottle - we will have filtered water available for you.

Location: Holy Redeemer Center, 8945 Golf Links Rd, Oakland
