San Francisco, CA

yhst-96025587295787_2136_6608598

The Abounding River Workshop introduces people to an unfamiliar view of being abundance. It encompasses both training people in a day-to-day practice as well as discovering a spiritual foundation that awakens one to a whole new way of looking at and interacting with money and resources. Participants experience themselves as being at the source of unlimited supply. Abundance is a way of being alive that replaces scarcity and survival with an awareness of always being provided for. This workshop is by donation/pay-it-forward.  Your seat is already paid for! Click the dates below to see more information and register!

 Kindred Spirit

 August 11th & 12th, 2012

 Los Angeles, CA

Kindred_Spirit_Cover

This workshop explores relationship as an access to the most authentic self: unconditional love. A relationship is simply “being with another."

Relationship is a mirror, an opportunity to reveal the wounds that separate us and uphold the illusion of aloneness. For many, relationship has become about compromise, or taking a fifty- fifty approach to finding workability. Kindred Spirit takes a 100% - 0% approach.  In taking full ownership, the union of “we” is awakened.  Once our resistance is uncovered, the presence of love reigns, and love and  life are fulfilled.  This workshop is for everybody as we are all in a relationship of some kind.

Sacred Commerce

Sacred_Commerce

What if awakening was the context at your workplace? What if management meant being accountable for the spiritual emergence of one’s staff as well as the well being of one’s company? What if conflicts in your work community were acknowledged as a chance to heal collective wounds? What if the mission of your business was to usher in a sustainable, spiritually fulfilling society? Sacred commerce is the practice of having the Eternal present in a commercial environment; it is creating money a sacrament and the exchange of goods and services as a holy opportunity.

Matthew and Terces Engelhart, are the owners of Café Gratitude LLC, a school of transformation in the setting of an organic vegan restaurant chain in the Bay area. With humor, passion, and authenticity the Engelharts will train participants to (re)create a company that appreciates in value as the work force collectively practices keeping its attention on Source and supply. Regardless of your position at work this course will endow you with the tools to embark on the path of the “realized profit”.  Click the dates below for more information and to register. If you want to hold a workshop in your area, contact Marta at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Community Building and Inspired Leadership

Community_Building_Workshop The workshop explores Community in all of the myriad possibilities.. Consider that we all want to care for each other and we are just afraid.

We say unconditional love is the context for a fulfilling community. We take a look at what stops us in choosing and creating community, and what is in our way of moving beyond this.  This workshop is very interactive and promises to be healing and motivational.

Aloha Awakenings

  

Inspired Leadership and Community Building Workshop


"Consider that around inspired leaders, community gathers."


Our newest workshop is designed to have you look at what stops you from living in, creating or surrendering to community. We say that we all want to take care of each other, we are just afraid to. Come learn skills for not only creating but also empowering community. 
Leadership is just as much a function of listening as it is of speaking, where do you stop listening? Our view of leadership is one of causing others to embrace their own greatness and realize the opportunity of living a life of service. 
Come join us for 5 days of inspiration, practice, soul searching and community building. 
Stay on Matthew and Terces' organic farm in East Maui just a block from the beach! Come and eat from the land and experience the beauty that Maui has to offer.

Join the founders of Café Gratitude, Matthew and Terces,  for a magical week in Osa Peninsula, Costa Rica. Accomodations are held at the Guaria de Osa Lodge.

The Kindred Spirit Workshop - This workshop explores relationship as an access to the most authentic self: unconditional love. A relationship is simply “being with another”. Relationship is a mirror, an opportunity to reveal the wounds that separate us and uphold the illusion of aloneness. For many, relationship has become about compromise, or taking a fifty- fifty approach to finding workability. Kindred Spirit takes a 100% - 0% approach. In taking full ownership, the union of “we” is awakened. Once our resistance is uncovered, the presence of love reigns, and loving life is fulfilled. This workshop is for everybody as we are all in a relationship of some kind.


This retreat offers:

  • 8 nights at Guaria de Osa Lodge
  • Delicious, wholesome, gourmet meals served daily with vegetarian options.
  • Three Osa Peninsula transfers that include 1 ocean trips (boat ride) and 1 road trip (taxi)
  • Microbus and boat to Drake Bay to Playa San Josecito Beach Landing

Matthew and Terces are the creators of the Abounding River Board Game and Café Gratitude. Matthew and Terces are each other's "love of their life". They have over 30 years experience in transformation work, being parents and business owners. They are committed to helping people become aware of how rich and full life already is.

Guaria de Osa Lodge, is a rainforest, ocean and culture center. It is located amidst a tropical nature sanctuary located in Osa Peninsula, Costa Rica. Known as “The Little Amazon by the Ocean,” it is home to one of the last great stretches of Central American tropical rainforests where wilderness, coasts and paradise beaches border a sparkling and pristine Pacific Ocean.


ABOUT THIS RETREAT

This retreat offers a variety of abundant experiences that include the following highlights:

 

Drumming for Dolphin Boat Trip - Marta Macbeth and Craig Fiels are the facilitators of this close encounter trip (two are offered) which is offered with musical experiences while reaching the dolphins and whales of Southern Costa Rica. Imagine a small boat full of people, a deep azure sky and a clear, indigo colored Pacific Ocean. You are off the Costa Rican coast at Drake Bay and the only sound is the gentle, trance-like beat of drums….Then, imagine a ripple on the surface of the water! A dolphin is approaching, lured perhaps by the rhythmic pulses of the drum. The excitement builds as we realize it is not just one dolphin; there are hundreds of dolphins encircling the boat in a wide embrace of joy! We continue drumming a rhythmic beat, our symbolic offering to these wondrous and joyful beings of the sea. Some dolphins come closer, jumping and swimming in synchronicty with the beating drums. Five, six, sometimes seven dolphins at a time are leaping and playing at the wake of the boat. Now dolphins are jumping in double helixes and cartwheels. Big pacific bottlenose dolphins are leaping high in the air on the outer edge of the circle. Waves of seven to 10 dolphins come in closer and rejoin the larger circle as we continue drumming.The whole ocean is alive and seemingly responding to our drum beat. Manta rays dance in the air, sailfish, and tuna leap with intense energy, flying fish appear suspended above the waves. Sea birds – boobies – fly beside us to acknowledge our musical offering. All of the drummers on the boat experience an amazing interspecies connection reflecting our joy through music and rhythm. We have confidence that the dolphins are responding to our offering. Roy, a Costa Rican marine biologist, confirms this. He estimates that possibly, 500 dolphins or more have come to hear our drumming.
