Join us for Ruth Li’s Silent Retreat: Shine Your Light!

Tired of starting your day with a peaceful meditation only to find yourself overreacting an hour later? Want to make a real impact in the world but feel stuck in the story of “not good enough”? If so, join us! Just as the sunlight in our wintery days continues to expand, so does our ability to shine forward our meaningful gifts. The big impact you want to make in this world is SO needed at this time. So, if you hear that quiet, steady voice calling for change, come and listen…

Noble silence is an ancient form of practice that connects us to who we really are and what we truly desire. Develop the clarity and freedom to transition into your most aligned path by navigating challenging thoughts, building self-trust and by cultivating an unshakeable centre so that actions will come from a place of true empowerment. Do what you’re meant to do now, not later.

This is your invitation to get out of the city for the day and to enjoy the beautiful countryside drive to Carp, ON. Tap into the last moments of inward winter reflection before the busyness of spring! Set a solid foundation for how you will move forward this year.

This event takes place on Sunday, April 30th, 2023 starting at 10:00 am until 4:00 pm EST. Please pre-register to secure your spot. All are welcome! For more details read below or reach out to us at or on social media.
