As the ferns unfurl under the trees and the wild flowers bloom on the forest floor, we celebrate the movement from spring into summer here at the Christine Center. The luscious green of new leaves, the nightly cry of Spring Peepers and Tree frogs, and the arrival of hummingbirds and orioles on our front patio all serve to remind us of the glory of creation. We invite you to join us in singing this song of celebration, as you come for personal time away, or to join in one of our upcoming retreats in June, and beyond. Please take a look at our upcoming offerings . . . 
We welcome and honor all who enter here to
engage in your own sacred work!
We still have a few spaces available in the upcoming Andrew Harvey retreat, beginning this coming Thursday, May 30th.

The Diamond Approach to Inner Work
An ongoing International Program
June 13-16 (Thursday-Sunday)
With Neal Carbon & Johanna Seubert

The Diamond Approach is a path of spiritual realization characterized by sincere inquiry into one’s experience, fueled by the love of truth. The immediate contact with the truth of our experience allows the unfolding of our Soul to reach increasingly deeper levels of truth. Our work includes meditation, teaching, movement, and experiential exercises.

The Ridhwan School is now accepting new students for the Diamond Approach to Inner Work: Midwest Group 3, which meets at the Christine Center. For more information and to register, contact Johanna Seubert at or 715-267-7507.
