A Spiritual Vacation
"A Retreat into Healthy Pleasures"
California and Europe
What if a spiritual retreat could be more memorable and pleasurable than any vacation?
What if 'healthy' wasn't boring, and spiritual and personal growth was pleasure, not hard work?
What if what you got at that retreat stayed with you for the rest of your life?
Well, that's just how Divine Openings retreats work!
Too often vacations and retreats "wear off," and all that's left is the credit card bill. This spiritual vacation is never over, you take it all home with you. Many healthy retreats are austere, the food tastes like grass clippings, and the activities are drudgery, or downright embarrassing. Not this one!
This profound 5-day silent retreat feels like a holistic vacation, but unlike ordinary vacations, the effects last a lifetime. It's an investment in yourself that keeps compounding.
We luxuriate in the powerful Grace vortex Lola Jones evokes, enjoy deep ecstatic states, laugh, enjoy amazing music, and feel free as you felt when you were a child.
You'll eat delicious gourmet food that is surprisingly healthy, move your body in the unexpectedly pleasurable ways, swim (at the California retreats.) You might walk by the ocean or in the woods, do Tibetan Rejuvenation, non-habitual movement, or other gentle, fun exercise, and ... well ... we like to pleasantly surprise you so we don't reveal all of it. No one has complained, but many have fallen in love with this new lifestyle.
You're bathed in a vortex of pure Divine Grace every minute you're here. There is lots of resting and relaxing to help you assimilate the powerful energies.
Your biggest decisions are likely to be whether you'd enjoy a nap, a walk, or a swim more. Your overworked mind gets a complete and total rest.
Meditation gets easy. You stay at the quiet, peaceful retreat center surrounded by pristine nature and wildlife the entire time, walk the peaceful grounds, take hikes if you like, and eat delicious food three times a day, indoors or out--your choice.
It IS miraculous what can happen when you get completely out of the way for five days, focus on peace and pleasure, and let The Divine do the heavy lifting.
How does that play out in practical terms?
What happens for people after the 5 Day Retreat? They're so busy feeling good and enjoying the freedom and new, more profound and effortless inner focus, they're surprised at what happened while they were simply "out of the way." Without seeming to have "done anything" or "processed anything" they go home and discover revived relationships, unexpected money, new jobs or rejuvenated careers, increased power and ability to make a difference in their old careers, resolved family problems, remission of serious diseases, and many other blessings, all from the blessing of Grace.
Some take the 5 Day Silent Retreat just
for their own personal and spiritual development.
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 "work"
Even those who've been on spiritual paths all their lives find elevation, expansion, new JOY. They find a new ability to bring their spiritual enlightenment down to earth in their relationships, families, finances, careers, inner guidance, daily decisions, creativity, happiness, health, and more.
And yes, they find deep pleasure--often for the first time.
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's life was falling apart and she was addicted to painkillers. She did this 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 vertebrae eight years ago.) He was dancing with us by day two. He walked out pain free.
