Dear Ones~

.

Could you benefit from sacred time away from the fullness of day-to-day living to refresh, recharge, revitalize and renew?

.

If the answer is YES, come get your mid-year tune-up!

.

I'm excited to announce our 6th Annual Mid-Year Visioning Retreat is happening Saturday, July 30 and you're invited.

.

Whether you are looking to recharge your batteries, revitalize an existing vision, completely re-imagine what your life can be, or simply pause and listen to the inner wisdom of your own Soul, this visioning retreat is for you.

.

.

One of the most important practices we can ever embrace is taking time periodically to recharge our spiritual batteries, check for energetic leaks and revitalize our vision.

.

Visioning will illuminate your deepest intent, that which your Soul is most yearning to express. You'll awaken to possibilities you hadn’t considered and reawaken to visions you previously dismissed, deferred or denied.

.

What is your deepest intent? What is your Soul most yearning to experience and express? We're gathering to ask the questions, receive the answers and to support one another in actualizing our highest visions.

.

.

A Sacred Soul Feast Awaits You...

Here's how it works:

.

  Without having to travel, a seasoned visionista (me!) will come to you and facilitate a visioning experience for you.
.
 
 

You'll join in from the comfort of your own space using the Zoom platform and the materials we provide.

.

 
 

The beauty of this virtual retreat is you can start anytime, join us whenever you like, as often as you like.
.

 
 

There are 4 LIVE visioning sessions to choose from morning to night. Attend one, two, three or all four sessions!

.

 
 

Each session includes music, meditation, visioning, and time to clarify your intention and focus for the journey ahead.

.

 
 

And there will be time, if you choose, to share an insight from your visioning and speak life into your intentions and visions. Or you can remain in the stillness of your own inward journey.

.

 

Emerge from our time together with renewed clarity, possibility, direction, purpose and power

.

 
.

..

Newcomers & Seasoned Visionistas Welcome!

New to visioning? You’ll receive a Visioning Resource Guide with visioning tips and

a detailed overview of what you'll experience when visioning with us.

"Participating in Rai's retreats has been a deeply transformative experience for me. I look forward to every single one. I've been enthusiastically inviting people I know to attend these retreats for years and they're always glad they did. Come check it out...there's something for everyone!"

.

~Cindy Hensley, RScP

..

.

What I love most about visioning is how it supports us in becoming our greater yet to be. A sacred space has been prepared for you to engage in the inner change that opens the way for the vision to emerge.

.

We're gathering together to welcome in the rest of the year with a renewed sense of vision, power, purpose, connection and possibility.

.

Come get your mid-year tune-up!

.

If what I've shared here speaks to you, please check out the details below. I look forward to co-creating with you.

Peace, Joy & Blessings,

"Rai is my first formal visioning teacher. I've been visioning with her for over a decade and I know her to be an embodiment of Visioning. I believe you will find this visioning retreat to be informative, transformative and inspiring. Expect to discover more about the Divine design of your life."

.

.

What is Visioning?*

.

Visioning is a deeply transformational spiritual practice. Dr. Michael Beckwith, the originator of the visioning process I use and teach, describes visioning as “a process in which we cultivate the ability to hear, see or sense a Divine idea for our life.”

.

Whether you call it God, Creator, intuition, Infinite Intelligence, your Higher Self, Creative Muse or the Divine design for your life, visioning involves aligning our lives with that source of higher wisdom, vision and guidance.

.

Specifically, visioning is a process where we quiet the mind, activate the wisdom of the heart and ask a series of empowering questions designed to awaken your highest vision, innate creative genius and the Divine insights of your own Soul.

.

When practiced regularly, visioning not only awakens insight and revelation about your highest vision and deepest intent, it also activates the dormant talents, skills, traits, qualities that empower you to live it and express it as your very life! Ongoing visioning keeps you in the flow of Divine guidance and inspiration.

.

"I’ve enjoyed Rai’s New Year’s Visioning Retreat every year and plan to join in this year too. It always jump-starts some aspect of my life. In 2014, frustrated that my gifts and talents were only partly being used, I surrendered deeply and got the message to pick up and move. Within 5 months I was in my new home and the blessings still keep pouring in; joyful music, spiritual service, and work projects I love using all of my abilities. Rai creates a space in which the new is not so much scary as it is exciting."

To support you in carving out time to join us, we've curated a list of ways  to personalize your retreat experience (submitted by our visionistas):

.

  • Attend as many sessions as you like! Start anytime. Join us whenever you like, as often as you like: for one, two, three or all four sessions.

.

  • Join us for just one session. Our visionistas who do this love the flexibility of having four session times to choose from and enthusiastically share how impactful a single session can be.

.

  • Seeking the nurturing of your very own retreat? Schedule in as many sessions as you like and carve out time in between sessions for activities that feed your Soul.

.

  • Between sessions you might... meditate, journal and/or pray; practice yoga, stretch or take a walk; create a vision board; take a nap or a bath. Or act on the inspiration to tidy up, clear up or start something new. Do what most resonates with you.

.

  • Love to share? Prefer to remain silent? You have the option to participate in the sharing and prayer time that takes place in the later part of each session or remain anonymous in the silence.

.

And if your schedule changes or you would like to attend more sessions than initially planned, please do!

.

..

..

.

"I'm so grateful for these visioning retreats and circles you offer. I get insights from visioning with you that I don't get from visioning by myself or from any other spiritual practice. Thanks to you and these sessions, I'm learning how to quiet my mind and tune in to the inner wisdom of my own soul. And I'm counting the days to this next one!"

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

.

Are you new to visioning? Or is this your first virtual retreat? Here are answers to some frequently asked questions about visioning and virtual events:

.

.
What is a virtual retreat?
.

Our virtual retreats offer a convenient way to unplug from the fullness of life and experience the transforming power of visioning right where you are. We use technology to create our “meeting” place. Without having to travel and from the comfort of your own space, you’ll be able to immerse yourself in this sacred time for reflection, revelation and renewal. How cool is that!

.

We use the Zoom platform as our virtual “meeting” place. Zoom gives you the option to join us by internet video conference (you are welcome to participate with your video on or off). Or dial in by phone.

.

.

How many sessions can I attend?

.
Your all-access pass gives you admission to all sessions taking place during the retreat. There are 4 visioning sessions to choose from, conveniently scheduled from morning to night. Attend as many session as you like. Start anytime, join us whenever you like, as often as you like. Attend one session or several sessions, any combination that works best and resonates for you.

.

.

How can this visioning retreat help me?

.

Visioning emphasizes inner listening, receptivity and balancing your being with doing, rather than self-will, striving and force.

Whether you are new to visioning or a seasoned visioneer, this virtual retreat is a sacred space to refresh, recharge, revitalize and renew. And it is a safe space to release any doubts about what's possible. Come get your mid-year tune-up!

.

.

Can I really experience the benefits of a visioning without being with you face to face, in person?
.
Yes. Those new to our virtual visioning sessions are often surprised at how easy it is to experience spiritual deepening and connection using technology. Rai has facilitated courses, circles, trainings and retreats by phone and video conference for well over a decade, She is particularly skilled at creating sacred space, connection, and community using virtual platforms like Zoom, Instant Teleseminar and Meetn.

.

.
Do I need any special equipment to participate?
.
If you have a desktop computer, a laptop, or a mobile device (either Android or iOS), it likely comes equipped with the special features you'll need to use Zoom, such as: a webcam, microphone and speakers.

.

It is possible to dial in to our Zoom gathering with nothing more than a landline or mobile phone. However, for the best sound quality (music is an integral part of our visioning sessions) and overall immersion in the experience, we recommend using the video conference option.

.

After you register, you'll receive an orientation packet with details and instructions for joining us.

.

.

And all I have to do to join you is make a tax-deductible donation of any amount?

Rai’s passion for visioning is infectious! For more than two decades, she has been providing sacred space for individuals and groups to learn and practice visioning, meditation and affirmative prayer. Once a successful yet unfulfilled member of the corporate & non-profit worlds, Rai charted a new course for her life using these transformative spiritual practices.

Rai facilitated her first visioning session in 1999 and her first visioning workshop in her living room in 2002, and she’s been supporting individuals and groups from all walks of life, faiths and traditions with visioning ever since. This year Rai celebrates 23 years as a licensed spiritual practitioner, 19 of those with a full-time teaching and healing practice.

She is Founder & Spiritual Director of Higher Vision Institute, a Centers for Spiritual Living affiliated teaching chapter founded in 2007 to support individuals, groups and organizations with using visioning as a pathway for personal and global transformation.

She facilitates visioning sessions, workshops and trainings for spiritual communities, corporate and non-profit organizations, advisory teams, boards of directors, and community groups; couples, families, children and young adults; and audiences in intimate settings of 10 to in-person and virtual gatherings of 500.

In 2020 Rai received the Practitioner Meritorious Award for 13 years of service as the Visioning Team Chair, supporting our organization and its predecessor organizations with visioning. Rai is a popular keynote speaker and shares her signature talks and workshops at annual conferences, retreats and colloquiums, and Sunday services.
