Spirit is calling to us. Evolution is happening. Perhaps you sense its urging around and within you. Simultaneously, we are faced with the challenges of life, internal and external tensions, local, national and global uncertainties. It may feel as if you and the world are going backward. Many ask the ancient question, “how can I be in this world, and not of it?” How do I access, nurture and sustain contact with the spiritual “I” that lies deep within, connecting to the Eternal?
The EnneaCross™ is the integration of two powerful ancient symbols of conscious awakening: the Enneagram and the cross-cultural cross. This integrated symbol points to important dimensions of our hidden experience–including both obstacles and paths to our Essential Nature.
In this retreat, we will explore important turning points along the spiritual journey–reflecting on deeply held dimensions of the ego that give the illusion of separateness and struggle–the basis of duality; and exploring portals for surrendering ourselves to the” divine milieu,” — to Love and the Mystery of Being.
Roxanne will offer brief talks and extensive experiential practice. Our sessions will include individual reflection, partner inquiry, somatic discovery, silence, and group dialogue.
Ultimately, this work supports the primacy of love, compassion, and awe of the mystery of Being.
Notes from past DL Mercy Retreatants:
Any interaction with Roxanne Howe-Murphy leaves one changed… She creates a container of safety and support that allows each participant to explore who they are with compassion, wit and warmth. What is compelling about Roxanne is she continues learning on her own path and willingly shares what she sees. I found her latest thinking on the EnneaCross™ to be profound in its insights and as a guide—I felt as if she was revealing yet another mystery of the Enneagram and with a generous spirit deeply engaged us in the discovery and learning…..Her wisdom, integrity and authenticity seem to be like breathing to her. I have already marked the dates of her next retreat as something shifted in me and now awake, I do not want to fall asleep again.

The Mercy Retreat led by Roxanne has become my annual spring ritual. This year Roxanne revealed the EnneaCross™, a profound and radical way to understand ourselves and the veils that keep us from recognizing our True nature. I left the weekend with an inward focus that has allowed me to be conscious to the paradoxes that present themselves in my daily life. The teaching and personal explorations that were shared with others in the group were life-changing. As I practice and remember to come back to the present moment and to life’s experiences, I can be open to the Mystery that can only be known by surrendering to life. This is deep, practical and sacred work that is sure to change anyone who is ready to live with purpose.
