  2. Big Heart is an experiential group process designed to help participants discover, experience and appreciate their lives in a new way. People of all backgrounds have found it to be a terrific way to identify and work through the unhealthy patterns that can sabotage our best efforts. By fostering a compassionate exploration of the intricate network of the diverse dimensions of the inner self, the Big Heart process empowers participants to live...
  3. Shalom Mountain takes pride in the growing number of skilled and heart-centered process leaders who work both on and off the Mountain. Really alive collaborative leadership means intimacy among the leadership. Those who have responded to the call into Shalom leadership need a place just to be, to share our lives, to nurture, to give and receive support. What better way for us to show our most intimate selves to each other than through a Shalom...
  4. The Shalom Retreat™ is an intensive growth experience set in a loving and supportive community. Shalom Retreats are based on our understanding of love: More than anything else, we want to love and be loved. Love is a gift. Love is not time bound. Love is good will in action.

I'll lead this month's gathering, not with the intention to figure it all out, but to offer a rare opportunity to safely and confidentially explore the questions and curiosities we all have about the opposite sex. Only when we see and honor...
  7. What's your relationship to the Divine? Is it an intimate, personal friendship? One of distant awe? Perhaps you experience yourself as Spirit, a component of Spirit, or all this and more. Or maybe you long for a relationship with the Divine, but are struggling to establish one. Join us as Tom Goddard leads us through a series of experiential processes in which we will examine not only our existing relationships (or lack thereof) with...
  8. Last February, participants in the Community for Spiritual Living ("CSL") had a great time at our first ever drumming circle. The most memorable comment was "when can we do this again?" Well, the time has come.
  9. September promises to be quite a month at the Shalom Mountain Retreat and study Center. As usual, the month will start with the Labor Day work weekend. This will be no ord
  10. I just returned from the fifth of six installments of the Introduction to Shalom Process Leadership training up at Shalom Mountain Retreat and Study Center. Since October, 30 of us have engaged in not only a deep inquiry into the mechanics of leading a Shalom retreat, but also an adventure into the exploration of the Self and much else.
