Hidden Wholeness
with Jan Novotka & Marie Larkin

There is a hidden wholeness in the Universe that penetrates all that is. Within every moment, within each person, creature, cell, and landscape is a wholeness waiting to be discovered. The amazing thing is to encounter this wholeness which opens us to our innate hidden wellness. During this silent retreat let us journey into the mystery of wholeness and wellness as we let ourselves relax and fall into the Great Communion at the heart of all that is.

Jan Novotka is an internationally known retreat facilitator and song writer who is sought out for her gift of crafting contemplative rituals for a variety of gatherings. She is committed to the evolutionary shift occurring at the level of consciousness. Jan holds a Master’s degree in Religious Education from Fordham University, is certified in Earth Literacy, and is an organic gardener.

Marie Larkin was born and raised in Clonmel, County Tipperary, Ireland. Marie’s simple yet profound approach is the right blend to open and move groups in unexpected and creative ways. She brings with her years of working as an art teacher (Manchester, England) and working with the homeless as an Art Therapist. Marie is certified as a spiritual director and has taught “Art and Spirituality” for The Institute for Contemporary Spirituality in Scranton, PA.
