The Heart of Love:  How Relationships are our Teacher

with Shastri Nick Kranz and Märta Vigerstad. 

February 14 - 16, 2020
William J Kelly Retreat Center
Bay St Louis, MS

Shastri Nick Kranz and Märta Vigerstad we will be our guides as we explore how to engage our relationships in more fulfilling ways. The retreat will consist of opportunities to discuss and uncover what we do and don’t understand about our connections, our own longing and its incredible potential for growth.


This retreat is welcoming to singles, couples, friends, and family members. There will be presentations and time for meditation as well as discussion and interaction. We will explore elements of working with desire, sense perceptions, and communication.

Love is expressed as the way we connect with our world, with the people close to us, and the way we communicate with them. There is so much to learn from our relationships but we need to take time and space in order to honor and deepen in them.
