5 Day Silent Retreats
& Advanced Retreats
~ The Spiritual Retreats That Never End ~
To experience spiritual enlightenment AND practical life results, people come from all over the world to these holistic retreats.
Even longstanding abuse and trauma disappears. You can begin LIVING immediately, rather than "hope to get there one day." This is leading edge personal and spiritual development, and it's a joy, not work.
Why people choose Divine Openings retreats:
- Some are living at high vibration and want to go higher.
- For a deep Honeymoon alone with The Divine Presence (easier without the distractions of daily life.)
- To break through a specific blind spot or obstacle.
- To break through deep resistances. How do you know if resistance is high? If you've read Things Are Going Great In My Absence and life isn't great, you still suffer, or have big "issues."
- To learn to give spiritual healings to heal physical conditions.
- It's step 1 & 2 in becoming a Certified Divine Openings Guide.
Participants share how Divine Openings changed their lives or physical illness was healed. Every retreater can give healings by day three, and Lola lets them do all of the miraculous physical healings. We know, it may seem too good to be true. But it's true. (You do not have to be in videos or group photos!)
Get a taste of how Lola Jones makes spiritual enlightenment, awakening, and personal and spiritual growth a joy. It's en-light-enment, not en-heavi-ment! You'll laugh as much as you meditate. We know, it usually isn't that way, but thank God, now it can be. We know that if you're in serious struggle, suffering, or depression you can't imagine it being this easy and happening in five days without terribly difficult processing--but it does:

If you didn't see this on the home page, as these two retreats opened people share the dramatic life changes that happened before and after their 5 Day Silent Retreat.
you don't ever have to go back to your old life.
Take the 5 Day Silent Retreat just for yourself
and others light up just from being around you. Whole families transform just from one family member's attendance, as enthusiastically celebrated by Jody Browne (at left) of San Antonio, Texas. Although she was a realtor, her friends began to say, "Whatever it is you've got now, we want it. Coach us." And now she does.
"My husband said you might as well start charging double for married participants as he was so incredibly relaxed taking care of our three children while I was gone, it was as if he had been on a 5 day retreat ... LOL. Lots of love and thank you again for this most special experience!!!" Gabriele, Germany
After her retreat, Gabriele later translated Lola's foundational book Things Are Going Great In My Absence to German, and has now changed hundreds of lives in Germany. She's the coordinator of the 5 Day Retreats in Germany and is a mentor in the Divine Openings Guide Certification program.

"Working on issues," getting spiritual healing, processing, clearing, and addressing problems keeps you seeking forever without finding "it". Enlightenment cannot be figured out by the mind, and no amount of metaphysical knowledge can make it happen. We don't do any of that in this holistic retreat, yet lives are transformed beyond recognition.
What do we do? Now that would spoil it, wouldn't it? What we don't do is make your tell your private business to strangers. There's nothing embarrassing or scary about this.
Your experience is private, quiet, and interior. Yes, you'll go deeper in meditation than ever before, and you'll know how to get back there, but it's more than meditation. In Lola's powerful field of resonance, magic happens. She's right there with you in the silence from morning till night for the five days.
- Online Pre-Retreat Preparation Course with text and audios of Lola teaching.
- Free 1st Aid Online Course if you have any specific pressing concerns like addiction, over-analytical mind, or depression.
- Bliss Maintenance multi-media Online Course with videos and audios for you to enjoy and to help you continue to evolve long after your retreat. Helps you bring it all down to Earth in your practical everyday life, deepen it, and sustain it long term.
- Techniques and experiences you'll use and refer back to for a lifetime.
"I'm still extremely happy since the Five Day Retreat--best decision of my life." Paul Feeney, Ireland
"So funny... I had a complete healing at this retreat. I asked for it a couple of days before I left for CA. Be open to possibilities. NOTHING is impossible if you put your small self in the back seat!!!! Mary Ledee, who had previously had a heart attack and had other physical issues
"I had a full-on Download from Above the other night - my first in over a year!
It was incredible - just like a chiropractic treatment, whilst buzzing.
My head was held & moved about, & each limb was also raised & moved. Amazing." x x x A
"Lola. THANK YOU!!!!!!!! I feel like I've been hit by a lightning bolt of pure feeling. I now realise not just at a mental level but deep in my core I create EVERYTHING. As I lay in bed chatting and intending the presence showed me pictures of a house I used to draw when I was young......it is the EXACT house my mam and dad have been living in for the past ten years. (they built exactly what I had drawn years and years ago) right down to the windows, red door, chimney position, surrounding fence and the few behind the house. I am feeling feelings I've never experienced before. I AM an unlimited non physical being in a physical body!!!! :-) yipee. Tears of awe, joy and sheer amusement are flowing. Thank you, thank you, thank you Lola. Since the Cornwall 5 day my life is indescribable". Lots of love to you, Katie xoxox

Elizabeth, therapist: Back at work the day after her intensive ended, she reported, "Wow, and thank you so much! I have already given a Divine Opening to 5 patients, I called it a blessing prayer, and they were all fine with it! I am amazed at the fire in my hands, and it comes on every time, in just a moment. Just amazing grace! Got alot to be doing now, but it doesn't feel overwhelming at all!" (She had been exhausted when she arrived for the 5 Day.) Later she wrote: ".... how different my life is from a week ago! I feel like I am walking on cloud nine since I left on Sunday... the biggest boost of all came from GIVING the Divine Openings. I am blown away... just blown away... I want to spend the rest of my life living in your new world. I am in heaven....right here on earth. Thank you a thousand times over."
After the 5 Day Retreat
You'll experience this new and different reality directly rather than just seek it, talk about it, or read about it. You get the tools and support to sustain this wonderful state of being and continue to unfold and expand. Then you go home and continue on with your Bliss Maintenance Online Retreat.
The retreat far surpassed all of my expectations!
I'm feeling an effervescent excitement of what's to come!
You're the BEST!" LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, Rosemary
"I got a new job today. Woo hoo! And not just a job, but a career! I no longer need to take my thyroid medicine. Lots of miracles going on in my life now . . . now that I'm willing and able to let them in. Thank you for the wonderful work you do!" Tamara Holmes
Some take the 5 Day Silent Retreat
for their own personal and spiritual development
and to unlock their own Divine Intelligence and talents to apply in any career or walk of life. Others do it so they can heal their own or others' physical illnesses, and some continue on into full training to be a Certified Divine Openings Guide--to catalyze dramatic transformation in people's lives on all levels. Some do it just because it's heavenly. If you're already a holistic healer, teacher, or counselor, becoming a Divine Openings Guide changes your personal world and your work. Help people with less stress on you-- people get better faster, easier, and tell lots more people. The way Divine Openings spreads by word of mouth is astounding.
The 5 Day Spiritual Retreat isn't "working on yourself"
Even those who've been on spiritual paths all their lives find elevation, expansion, and an increased ability to bring their spiritual enlightenment down to earth in their relationships, families, finances, careers, inner guidance, daily decisions, creativity, happiness, health, and more.
Spiritual awakening happens
"I'm doing fantastic, surfing on top of a 35 foot wave.
I may dip down and glide through the tube but I am soon on top again.
Life is spectacular. I haven't been the same since I attended your retreat.
One day at a time, I create the life of my dreams." Mario Rocha, San Ramon, CA
Spiritual teacher Lola Jones strongly believes
Our 5 Day Retreat blends deep peace and silent Presence with the holistic pleasures of healthy food, movement, nature, music, ecstatic chanting, laughter, and so much more. Divine Openings is not a dogma--it's a joyful, balanced holistic lifestyle, and this retreat is the epitome of living it.
To do the 5 Day Retreat you don't have to be at any certain level. It's for all levels, beginner to advanced. You can register and read Lola's book, Things Are Going Great In My Absence as you prepare to come, but you must finish the book before you arrive.
One desperate woman whose life was falling apart and was addicted to painkillers did this silent retreat just after reading the book, and one month after her retreat her entire life had changed, and she continues to expand and evolve. Another man recently was barely able to walk, on crutches and in constant pain (he had a motorcycle accident in which he broke four vertibrae eight years ago) and he was dancing with us by day two. He walked out pain free.
