THE PROGRAM

Lynn felt that an essential part of renewing our spirit and rejuvenating our soul, is to spend as much time on this sacred and powerful land as possible. You are encouraged to do things like meditations, exercises, explorations, and personal ceremonies designed specifically to move you into a receptive point-of-view. We suggest you bring a journal for this event, that you can continue to use after the event is over. These personal processes are an important aspect of the retreat and will prepare you for the in-depth work we will then do together in the evening hours.

Each day, you will receive Shamanic Teachings and Meditations to help you explore and experience the Shaman in you. You will move outside to explore the magic and beauty of the land and discover the many gifts she has to offer in her uplifting sunrises and spectacular sunsets. You and your spirit council will drum, rattle and hum to the thrilling mystical power, the wealth of magic alive within you. 

The Quickening
"When something negative affects you powerfully, you must look at it and understand it, and then turn your face away and let the light be your guide. To understand the darkness does not mean you become it. It means you examine it carefully, learning what it is made of, understanding its power and limitations. Only then can you really do something to change it."
Lynn V. Andrews

Coming Full Circle, Ancient Teachings for a Modern World, Rainbow Ridge Books

Come and awaken the exotic beauty that has always been. Join the community of Lynn Andrews at Joshua Tree.

 The Venue

About Joshua Tree Retreat Center at
The Institute of Mentalphysics
59700 Twentynine Palms Highway, Joshua Tree, CA   92252
Located on Highway 62

Lynn Andrews had many a "Joshua Tree" events at this rustic property.  The 3nd Annual Spring Gathering is a perfect event to have on the Joshua Tree Retreat Center.

The Joshua Tree Retreat Center is the home of Edwin Dingle’s vision for The Institute of Mental Physics, City of Joy, where his founding belief of inclusive yet autonomous paths to personal truth and wellness, is celebrated and honored.

The 140-acre desert campus offers serene walking paths and vortex energy locations to explore, an exercise pool and hot tub for relaxation as well as a spiritual book and gift store to find inspiration.

The Retreat Center buildings were designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and son Lloyd Wright. The simple accommodations then and now reflect a place to connect on a deep level with spiritual teachings and the beauty of the desert. For this reason, please note there are no televisions in our rooms.

Weather in the desert is unpredictable. The forecast might indicate rain, yet the day turns out sunny – and the reverse can happen. Keeping this in mind, bring the right shoes and clothing for the time of year you are joining us
