spiritual counsel


From time to time, it's time.  Time to withdraw from the world and focus on your practice.  The Temple supports these retreats by offering physical, spiritual and energetic space for the retreat.  Participants work with monastics in advance to determine their intention, and what specific forms of support are most helpful to them.  These have typically included one-on-one spiritual counsel, personalized rituals, suggested reading lists with discussions, and support with daily rhythms.
