FINDING FREEDOM – 5 Day Virtual Home Retreat
February 17 @ 9:30 am - February 21 @ 12:30 pm
“Your True Nature is that of Infinite Spirit.
The feeling of limitation is the work of the mind.
When the mind unceasingly investigates its own nature
It transpires there is no such thing as mind.
This is the direct path for all.”
Sri Ramana Maharshi
We all want to be Free – capable of living an authentic, meaningful life where we can manifest our love and gifts into a world that needs them more than ever. Often, it seems that our freedom is limited by forces outside of us, but spiritual teachings throughout the ages have reminded us that what truly liberates is not ultimately external. Freedom, like Love is inherent to our deepest nature and the birthright of us all. The question is – how do we gain access to this luminous depth? How do we take back our true agency so we may show up with peace and potency in 2021?
This retreat offers you a rare opportunity to journey into the themes that matter most to you and open to a substantial shift in your core center of gravity. Together, with courage and compassion, we will illuminate the root causes of what binds you in limitation, however that presently manifests on your path. Practicing ego relaxation with all that we find, we will unwind our attachment to our familiar identity and its patterns, and open to the grace of self-forgiveness that washes us clean of the past.
Through articulate teaching, graceful transmission and precise practices, Miranda will guide you beyond the constraints and concerns of your ego identity with its inevitable fear and insecurity. You can emerge with greater access to the luminous jewels of your essence, and the capacity to embody these jewels further into your daily life.
“The intimacy and deep connection with Miranda and the other participants was a welcome surprise for this virtual retreat. There was nothing “removed” about it. Miranda’s exquisite Presence and teaching was immediately and profoundly felt. This was greatly enhanced by the opportunity to work with Miranda and to share with each other through Inquiry and Satsang. This engendered a wonderful sense of spiritual community as we held each other in unconditional acceptance and Love. Having been in a number of in person retreats with Miranda which were amazing, I can highly recommend a virtual retreat with her in which she transmitted palpable Grace, deep connection with participants, joyous chanting, wonderful meditations and profound teaching so relevant to our times right now. We need this broader virtual community now more that ever as we navigate these unsettling experiences that life is bringing to us. We can discover that there is a precious gift in the midst of all of this.”

Join us as together we explore how to:
- Discriminate between “the freedom to do whatever I like” vs freedom to live authentically from your depth.
- Explore your relationship to Freedom – what keeps you bound at this point on your path, and why.
- Relax your attachment to stories about who you are, what the world is.
- Shift from maintaining a self-image to Being “I AM.”
- Return to your natural clarity, confidence and agency.
- Land in spiritual maturity and express your gifts deeper into the world.
Miranda will be expanding upon foundational within The Way of Grace that best support us in these uncertain times, sharing powerful teachings, transmissions and practices that grow us more spiritually resilient.
Together, we will cultivate community and loving support so we can address the important themes of our lives, and harness it all as a gateway to Grace.
Additionally, Miranda will be emphasizing self-nurturing practices and recommendations for you to engage in between our two formal daily sessions so you can truly create a retreat environment that supports holistic wellbeing. This includes new recommendations for walking meditations, simple “nature” based meditations, and delicious new immune boosting recipes.
“This was a life changing event for which I am eternally grateful! I have participated in many online satsang/retreats over time with other established teachers. This retreat was by far the most sacred container I’ve experienced.”

Miranda will work with your most important questions and concerns in exactly the same way as she would in person, in the “chair”. The Zoom format is excellent for this.
“The Zoom retreat brought the immediacy and intimacy of onsite retreat to the ease and comfort of being at home, sleeping in my own bed! Furthermore, the way the experience integrated into my ordinary at home life brought a richness and depth unique to this venue.”
Linda, Participant on Virtual Home Retreat, March 2020
