Agape's Annual New Year Meditation Retreat 2019

Are You Ready to Answer Spirit’s Call to

If you’re not playing in mastery, you’re playing in mediocrity.

You have entered into this human incarnation to realize that you are a master of your own destiny. As you come into this high state of Self-realization, you live to share your gifts and talents free of anxiety and anchored in joy. Once you awaken to that reality, you are no longer asleep to that truth; you are living a life of purpose.

It’s not as intimidating as you might imagine it to be, because part of you already knows that you are a master, and that you’re here to unveil, express, realize and share it.  

So the real question is: are you ready to come face-to-face with that much beauty, intuitive intelligence, contentment and creativity? 

If so, then join Michael Bernard Beckwith at Agape’s Annual New Year Silent Meditation Retreat, Mastery: Your Soul-Directive, as we embody the principles and practices of anchoring Self-Mastery, including: 

  • Mastering the art and science of meditation
  • Mastering the art of releasing unwanted habit patterns
  • Mastering the art of transcending the turbulence of the outer world
  • Mastering your intention
  • Mastering living in a consciousness of inner contentment

This powerful journey, which is open to both new and seasoned meditators alike, includes daily meditation sessions, affirmative prayer, healing music and devotional chants, yoga, balance tai chi, delicious plant-based meals and a sacred healing ceremony on New Year’s Eve designed to open your heart and mind to your Soul’s directive.

Your date with your Divine destiny starts Saturday, December 29, 2018 and ends Tuesday, January 1, 2019, and takes place at the Joshua Tree Retreat Center in Joshua Tree, California. See retreat information below for more details!

Joshua Tree Retreat Center (JTRC) is the oldest and largest retreat center in the western United States; a unique architectural landmark on a sacred site. As a non-profit 501(c)(3), their mission is to support the education and nourishment of the infinite human potential.

This land, though desert, rests upon an aquifer, a running river, producing an intriguing magnetic effect on those who enter this ancient and sacred space. Renowned spiritual teacher and yogi master Paramahamsa Yogananda had walked this land in earlier times. It truly is a magical place. Most of the unique buildings at our site were built by world-renowned architects, Frank Lloyd Wright and his son, Lloyd.

JTRC offers open spaces, sacred meditation locations and serene vistas filled with native plants and plenty of wonderful spots to explore, including meditation paths, a labyrinth, medicine wheel and Tai Chi circles, a warm pool and a wellness center offering massage services and a bookstore/gift shop.
