Selah: Pause, reflect, find meaning

April 17-20, 2014
in Sedona, Arizona
join us for a remarkable time
of communion with self, other, and grief.

Selah (Cacciatore, 2012) is a mindfulness-guided path 
through grief that recognizes several foci: 
self, self and other, and other. 

The term selah itself derives from the Hebrew word celah
noted in the book of Psalms to remind the reader to pause, reflect, and contemplate meaning.

The idea is to cultivate an authentic, tolerant, 
and enriching relationship between mourners and their grief, 
one that unites their suffering in pause, reflection, and meaning, 
and mourners find their own path in their own way and in their own time. 


The soul still sings in the darkness telling of the beauty she found there; and daring us not to think that because she passed through such tortures of anguish, doubt, dread, and horror, as has been said, she ran any the more danger of being lost in the night. Nay, in the darkness did she, rather, find herself.

--St. John, Dark Night of the Soul
