“Let love lead your soul.
Make it a place to retire to,
a kind of monastery cave,
a retreat for the deepest core of your being.”
— Attar of Nashipur
The 2019 Movement Monastery takes place at RAVENROCK, 160 acres of high desert terrain at 7000 feet. Seekers leave frenetic modern life and delve into rich spiritual practice supported by a remote quiet of magnificent Ponderosa forest, 100-mile vista of uninhabited canyon, and ancient rock rim. Inquiry encompasses the experiential and reflective, silent and verbal, moving and stillness, mindless and mindful. Practices include: Dancemeditation Core Materials, Dervish Whirling, Shattari Lineage Movement Meditations, chanting, writing, transformational dance, time in nature, spiritual conversation.
