Whole Living ‘Giving Thanks’ Weekend Retreat
Nov. 15-18, 2001



One of Southern California’s premier wholistic events will take place at The Lazy W Ranch, surrounded by hundreds of acres of oak forest east of San Juan Capistrano, November 15-18, 2001.

The event opens Thursday evening with Sufi dancing led by Syhdasa, back by popular demand. Entertainment includes a variety of concerts, featuring the music of internationally-famed artist, Peter Makena, award-winning folksinger/composer, Beth Ivy, Kristopher Stone’s Trance Formation Band, and a crystal bowls concert (complete with didgeridoo) by Elivia Melodey’s Crystal Vibration.

The weekend also offers participants an opportunity to attend workshops on a variety of topics and experience some of San Diego and Orange County’s best healers and massage therapists. Participants who wish to offer a mini-workshop in their area of expertise are invited to do so. There will be ongoing events on community building and healing world conflict in the light of current events.

The Whole Living Weekends, led by author/speaker, Bill Jason O’Mara, and Elationship coach, Carol Chiwah, are volunteer-organized, not-for-profit events designed for community leaders and all evolving beings, to create a heart-connected environment of fun, learning and healing in a setting conducive to exploring the meaning of living in true community and planetary evolution. This is the third (and final) Whole Living Retreat of the year.  Previous weekends have drawn participants from as far away as Germany, and this one is expected to draw international participation.

All activities, meals and lodging for three nights are included in the $195 registration price, with discounts available for early registration. Advance registration is strongly suggested, as campsites and dorm-style rooms are limited to 75 people. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the “EYE Crisis & Counseling Services,” a San Diego County-based non-profit social services agency, to assist Counseling, Advocacy, Response and Education toward the intervention and prevention of family violence.  www.theeye.org
