Designed as a community retreat center, Camp Stevens is a peaceful place apart where groups can leave the bustle and distractions of everyday life to deepen relationships with one another and accomplish common goals. The serene, natural setting brings rejuvenation to the spirit, mind and body.
Camp Stevens is available to religious and other non-profit groups for retreats, conferences, and meetings. Two hundred fifty-six acres of forest and meadows offer unhurried serenity, and the comfortable facilities are designed to encourage and support community-oriented programs for groups of 10 to 140 persons.
Beyond the central campus, Camp Stevens offers a preserve of more than 220 acres of pristine pine and oak forest, open meadows, small ponds and seasonal streams. The several distinct habitats of the preserve support more than 115 species of birds. You may also see deer, bobcat, wild turkey and coyote. Miles of hiking trails make the area ideal for both short walks and longer hikes, and from the â€œUpper Meadowâ€ there are spectacular views in every direction.
It is that time of year when you all need to make a decision to do something for yourselves. You are all invited to this year's AHVMA retreat at Camp Stevens, Julian, California. It will be held before the conference from Tuesday night August 23 rd, finishing up Friday morning after breakfast August 26th.
Dining Hall, family style.
Schedule for this full day work shop Six hours :2 hrs AM / 4 hrs PM
Part I. The Mind (10am to Noon) We could start earlier too.
The mind used as an “instrument” is helpful. When used for spirituality or relationship…or identity, it can get us in trouble. As veterinarians, you are trained to learn different techniques and modalities, but rarely encouraged to challenge why we feel stressed and out of sync with life.
Part II. The Heart (1:30 PM to 3:30PM)
Living From the Heart…..using your heart for guidance to the Truth, and door to the “spirit” within.
Part III. Forgiveness (4:00 to 6:00 PM)
How to lighten your “load” through the practice of a forgiveness meditation: to open the Heart and trust Spirit.
This presentation will include: guided and individual meditations, exercises, and group and individual sharing and discussion.
We are blessed to have Jane at our retreat this year.
