Frog song, amongst many other nocturnal creatures….and the constant drone of the marico river, set the rhythm for summer moonlit evenings…
With the break of dawn comes the inspiring calls of many birds, wide awake…listening to life…and in return 'answering'…with sounds as varied as life itself.
These are only a few of the magical sounds you will hear over the weekend…cultivating a desire to listen more and more deeply…to all that is around…and more intently…within.

"Hearing our answer from deep within
and following its direction
will turn us slowly towards peace,
a peace we may not understand
but one that opens us to new meaning."
- Gunilla Norris

The "Listening to Life" Summer Retreat at "The Well", on Riverstill guest farm, provides a space for one to pause…really listen, to life…and celebrate !

"Without it being any more than simply stopping
we can pause all through the day to feel
ourselves in time and space.
This allows us to be located."
- Gunilla Norris
