2018 Upcoming Retreat/Event Schedule: 




Being with Self, Being with Other, 
Being with Dying.
Daylong Retreat with
Loren Arienne Uecker, MDiv.
June 2nd
How does our conscious presence with ourselves—our bodies, minds and hearts—directly inform and enhance our presence with others?
This embodied journey gets to the “heart of the matter”, directing us toward an intimate personal encounter with the active and dynamic continuum between Self and Other. Here, we will gain tools for sitting in the belly of suffering—our own and others, living and dying. This day-long retreat will introduce a variety of presence-practices. Background in meditation practice(s) of any form or tradition is encouraged.  
*Note: This program serves as excellent deepening for Cause To Pause trainees.
Loren recognized a deep call to the work of death transitions while lying next to her own mother as she approached her dying. This led her on a fifteen-year journey, beginning with hospice volunteering, unfolding into graduate inter-faith chaplaincy studies at Naropa University’s Divinity School, followed by 13 years of serving as a professional hospice Chaplain. Loren is an ordained Buddhist Minister and practitioner of Buddhism for 24 years. She is daily inspired by the place where the deep presence practices of contemplative traditions inform and enhance our human capacity to bare witness to suffering and transformation of all kinds. Her work is additionally influenced by years of study in body-oriented psychotherapy and shamanic modalities. Loren has a particular passion for teaching and has developed and taught spiritual care models for hospice volunteer and staff across multiple organizations.  She currently serves as core faculty for the Willow Farm “Cause To Pause”–Contemplative End-of-Life Care program. She spends a great deal of time adoring her three-year old, and sings whenever possible.
