Can You See Yourself Here?
Do you need a RE-SET RETREAT?
Consider an immersion experience in
A Course in Miracles.
We invite students of A Course In Miracles, whether new or experienced, to stay with us at The Little Garden for the purpose of studying and living the Course. (Reviews and Photos below.) Couples are also welcome. You are invited to participate fully in our small group almost-daily study together, consisting just of those of us who live here (Poppy, Timothy, Jan...and you if you so choose). Our Course study together is a very rich experience, and there is no extra charge for these classes. In addition, there is small group of experienced Course students/teachers who meet here once a week, and you are welcomed by other Course groups in Sedona.
We offer you the opportunity to live with us short term as a part of an adult family, sharing the kitchen, living room, dining room, and also pitching in on ordinary household tasks. You would have your own private room with its ensuite bathroom.
We have fun together, as well as a lot of Course-related conversations. Opportunities for practicing the Course's lessons in forgiveness and experiencing its gifts arise in these interpersonal settings. Learning is accelerated. Living together thus becomes the classroom.
You will be shopping and making your own meals, using our kitchen stuff, and you will share a refrigerator in the close-by garage with Poppy. The kitchen has plenty of counter space for several people to work at the same time. If you would like to sit down at the table together, just make that request. Mealtimes are good times for sharing.
Our rates are $900 for a 30-day stay, or AirBnB rates (an average of $85 per day) for shorter stays with a minimum of 3 days. Linens and all utilities are included for the first month. Call me, Jan, to inquire about availabilities or to be put on a notification list. Please note that for longer stays, you may need to plan 6 months or more in advance. There is only one room dedicated to our Course guests, and we receive bookings for short-term stays well in advance as well.
The beauty of the landscape is inspiring. I would be thrilled to take you on a hike or two each week, if you so desire. You can experience quiet, solitude, and inspiration even on short, easy hikes.
And you'll find that Sedona is jam-packed with people on spiritual journeys, art galleries, and friends you haven't met yet. In other words, life outside the home can be very rich, too.
This past summer Timothy and I grew especially fond of sitting out on the front porch at night, sharing, doing some singing and playing (him, ukelele), laughing and being happy together. We just added two chairs to the front porch, hoping you will take us up on the invitation to come visit us at The Little Garden!
REVIEWS and PHOTOS
"I came to the Little Garden to find clarity and balance -- spiritually, mentally and physically. That journey was guided by Jan and Timothy’s loving support. Their excellent knowledge and impeccable teaching is digestible and expansive. They also embrace and practice Course principles/practices in their home, simply living the Course.
"Sedona itself is also a sanctuary. Timothy and Jan have the grace of being extraordinarily spiritual folks that are long time residents of this beautiful place. It was a privilege living in their home.
"I have become inspired and renewed in so many ways. The words Thank You don’t begin to express my boundless gratitude to both of them." --Cathie Jones
"This was the best vacation I ever had!" ..."I miss The Little Garden. Jan and Tim were such good hosts. They are warm and welcoming. And my suite was lovely. Actually, everything about this experience was wonderful. And most of all, I absolutely love having A Course in Miracles group every day. Between that and just talking about the Course through the days I was there was an immersive experience that I will miss very much." --Rev. Myron Jones
"I spent a month studying with Jan and Tim in their beautiful home and can't say enough about how much I loved the experience. The natural beauty of Sedona, immersion in the Course, a room well-appointed with a private bath and outdoor sitting area, the sound of Tim's fountain, Jan's incredible garden, what else can I say? There is no other place like it. I plan on returning every year." -- Connie Brannock
"There is privacy, there is community, and there is always a warm welcome. I spent a month here, and I can say that Jan and Tim are five star hosts. They support your journey inward and your journey out along the Glorious Pathways and trails beyond The Little Garden. You will find everything you need in your own room, and yet there's shared space that can accommodate your work, meditation, social and exercise needs. Don't hesitate to ask Jan for advice about hikes around Sedona. I call The Little Garden 'the love house' and plan to be back soon! " --Amy Weintraub
"I lived in Jan and Timothy’s lovely and loving home for 10 months. Being experienced and dedicated Course teachers, they provide in-depth study and ongoing practice of A Course in Miracles. Living together in shared intent, the practice is kept in focus, learning is intensified and deepened! Thank you, Jan and Timothy!"
-- Poppy Paoli [now here longer term]
"Spirit, through a series of coincidences, led me to two extraordinary Teachers of the Course. ... Jan and Timothy are gentle teachers. Their "no-mask wearing" honesty during morning check-ins keeps things real. Their wholehearted love encouraged me to go deeper within myself. The daily experience of living the Course ushered me into a deeper peace within my mind, and a truer understanding of the Course as a way of life. I am grateful for all the people that have been called to teach the Course at this deep level."
-- Pamela Kenney
