The WOW of Contact 2019

January 13-18, 2019

The 12th annual WOW of Contact

@ Breitenbush Hot Springs!!

w/ Touchmonkey (Carolyn Stuart & Patrick Gracewood)


You come. You show you what you do.

Aligning presence and movement, we dance closer to ourselves and each other.


The retreat immersion is designed to support collaborative experimentation to grow our authenticity, agency and communion. By committing to curiosity we become more aware of what is and able to stretch into what else is possible. We’ll explore the idea that we can achieve unity through celebrating uniqueness. We’ll trust and invite our innate capacity to show up and shine and flow with what wants to happen!

The retreat develops each day from solo to partnered to group focuses. That said, each is invited to stay connected to their needs in the moment. It is an experiment in collaborative liveliness and re-membering the awe in awkwardness.

Breitenbush Hot Springs and the heart of winter is a magical container to hold and support our journey into mutual well-being. We hope that you can give yourself the gift of joining us.


Retreat schedule-

~8-9 Breakfast

~9:30-11:30 AWE (Awareness Witnessing Experience) ~

We’re always having experience, but are we aware of it?
This is a practice to hone and expand awareness of our experience in the present moment. Awareness is the basis of our connection to what is occurring. Awareness is essential to access choice in relationship to what is occurring. Access to choice is necessary to care for ourselves and others. (No music.)

11:30-12 debrief/glean circle

~1-2 Lunch

~3-5:30 Prompt & Circumstance ~

Deepening our C.I. research. We will explore the applying of prompts to circumstances! All are invited to share prompts with the group. All are invited to apply those prompts to their unique circumstances. All are encouraged to ask what it means to be true to oneself, interested in and respectful of other’s truths and curious about the resulting  relationship between self and other. In doing so we cultivate the possibility of being unified by the fact of our diversity and grow the potential for mutual well-being.
