Love is way more than a commodity we get or give, it is who we truly are minus our personality. It has the power to melt our personal and collective suffering at the root, if we are willing to bring our defenses, fears and subtle closure to the light of unconditional awareness. Love’s presence melts our armor, resolves the spiritual poverty of lack, and ushers us into the very heart of Reality. These four days at Santa Sabina provide a safe container to dive deep within, and let our personal, relational and collective struggles unwind in the ground of grace. Together, we will journey through and beyond the emotional heart into the unending ocean of real love, kindness, compassion, courage, fulfillment and joy. Taking our seat in the Boundless Love of our true identity, we will explore what it takes to relate to one another and live in the world from that depth of heart.
Through holistic self inquiry, meditation and devotion we will:
* Open into direct experience of Boundless Love
* Unwind subtle defenses, judgment and closure
* Liberate unworthiness and the fear of receiving
* Rest in the fulfillment of the vast heart
* Living AS Love in these complex times
The format is experiential and powerfully transformative. Miranda will share new practices to help you function in daily life from inner guidance rather than conditioned patterns of mind. She will guide you on how to surrender, ask and listen, and give expanded teachings on the practice of meditation, devotion, prayer and self-inquiry.

Testimonials from Retreat Participants
"Meeting Miranda Macpherson was one of the single most life altering encounters of my lifelong spiritual journey. In her loving presence, and by following her simple yet profound practices, I have reached levels of awareness and depths of realization I never dreamed possible. I have come to know my deepest Self, directly, beyond ego, beyond concepts and deeper than mind and have experienced deep peace, profound joy, universal compassion and boundless love not as mere ideas, but as my own direct, unshakable subjective reality. I now know that I am and always have been that which I have been seeking my entire life. There is only one word that for me adequately describes the gift of Miranda and her work - GRACE."
~ Neal Rogin, Visionary Film-Maker
"When Miranda says, 'you are deeper than you realize,' she means it. Since meeting her, I have discovered talents that had been in hiding, and my relational and financial life has changed for the better. I find myself better able to authentically relate to others, am less affected by minor stresses, and am more grounded in my work life. I am contributing on a deeper level and am finding great joy in doing so. The little 'me' that was doing a poor job of running my life has given way to continual guidance from my soul and from God. I am astounded by the miracle of existence every single day, and I am eternally grateful to Miranda for showing me the way."
