“Part of the Whidbey Institute’s path is to help people find their own authentic center point, the place in themselves where they are able to be at ease, to be resilient, to be flexible, and to be at peace.” —Joel Shrut

Warrior Monk II: The Art of Staying Awake

September 18 - September 23

The Work Continues

Warrior Monk II: The Art of Staying Awake is an intensive development program: a six-day, five-night retreat with advance and follow-up work.

We’ll have a larger number of our long-time experienced core Warrior Monk staff, all with 12 years or more of staffing and all who work with these tools and practices as a living. This will allow for more individualized and small group work, not only at the retreat but in the pre and post-program as well.

I’ve been personally inspired and challenged holding the following inquiry as of late: “Do these choices I make and the path I’m on consistently enlarge my soul and this life, or conspire to make smaller?” I get from talking to some of you that this resonates and is a place where we as seekers and allies can meet.



    Warrior Monk II: The Art of Staying Awake is a 5 night, 6 day retreat within a 4+ month program.

    Advance pre-retreat work begins 6 weeks prior to the retreat, and continues for 2.5 months following.

  •  COST

    Approximate cost is $2,100. Please inquire. Includes food and lodging, and all pre and post program service and support.

    [as always, we’ll be flexible about making finances work – talk to Dan McKee if concerned]


    Limited to 20 participants, must be enrolled 2 months prior to retreat.
