After you write out your request, place it in the box on the Altar. Jeanne will be sending your prayer out to the 20 Ministers and Practitioners who have signed up to pray daily for your requests.

Sharron Clark, R.Sc.P. Emeritus 

Monday through Thursday

Practitioner and Certified T’ai Chi Chih Instructor, Sharron Clark will lead T’ai Chi Chih at 4 p.m. for a refreshing and easy movement exercise to loosen up the body after workshops and before dinner.


Gong Meditation at 5 p.m. in Fred Farr Forum

Rene Cornwell, R.Sc.P.

Monday through Thursday

Practitioner, Rene Cornwell will present his Gong Meditation daily at 5 p.m. The Gong Meditation, which is a long time favorite at our retreats, is unique and expansive. The vibrations and tones have a balancing effect on the energy field and centers, and a calming effect on the mind. Rene shares, “It is my good pleasure to share this rare opportunity with your all.” 


Creativity Hour at 5 p.m. in Afterglow Living Room

Monday - “Making Your Mark at Asilomar”

with Cindy Jaime, R.Sc.P. With Pamela Lloyd, R.Sc.P. 

Come design and create your own unique bookmark to remember this very special return to Asilomar. You may also feel inspired to make extra bookmarks to give as gifts perhaps with a book from one of our presenters. We will have a variety of decorating supplies to choose from and you will also have the chance to laminate your bookmark so it will last longer.   

Tuesday - “Prayer Sticks” - Joan Anderson, R.Sc.P. 

As you walk the grounds during the week, be on the lookout for the twig or stick that calls your attention along the way. Then join Joan to create the prayer, decorate your prayer stick (individualizing it to match you), then take it home to be on your altar to remind you of who and what you are, and of this sacred, creative time that is our spiritual Living Retreat at Asilomar. 

Thursday - “Lava Stone Bracelets” - Monica Gump, R.Sc.P.

For centuries, lava beads have been popular for their healing properties. These natural stones calm the wearer’s emotions, and are considered helpful in shedding some unnecessary layers of emotional attachment. When it comes to spiritual healing lava stones can also ground and stabilize the root chakra. The stone is porous and so holds essential oils for hours. other gem stones and symbolic beads are available to personalize each bracelet.
