In a beautiful and deeply nurturing environment, join us in retreat for two pleasurable days, where you’ll be supported in opening deeply to the magnificence of your true self, the Divine Presence within you. Experience the profound comfort, inspiration and joy of knowing who you really are and how you want to live your life.
This retreat is unlike any other you may have experienced. Divine Openings Giver Suzanne Eder creates a powerful field of resonance that opens you to the Grace that has been raining down on you all along, lifting your vibration naturally and gracefully. As your vibration rises, issues resolve themselves and, after the retreat, your everyday life flows with more Grace, ease and velocity than you’ve ever imagined.
The foundation for this retreat is Divine Openings and the theme is self-empowerment. You will gain deeper understanding of how to lovingly cultivate and consolidate your personal power to create a successful, generous and deeply fulfilled life.The old-paradigm spiritual path of "working on yourself" - processing, sacrificing and struggling - is over. Grace does the work; you practice letting go and enjoying. You'll also learn how "working on yourself" actually holds you back from a life you love.
Through a combination of Divine Openings, teaching, guided activities, meditation, music and quiet time for personal reflection, meditation and journaling, participants will experience a deepening connection with the Divine Presence within and heightened awareness of how to come into alignment with the flow of Divine Grace. There are no special diets and you won't be asked to do anything risky or difficult. This is all about relaxing, opening and allowing.
Solid Ground's spiritual retreat is not just about recharging your batteries so you can better cope with your busy life. It's about learning to genuinely love, trust and honor yourself, and allowing a life you love to blossom from your inner core of magnificence.

"It was simply awesome." - J.A.
“The Divine Openings beach retreat was amazing! I’d attended the one in May and had been awestruck by the depth of “knowing” contained within me. The November retreat took me deeper into this “knowing” and allowed me to connect at an ever deeper, and broader, level with my Divine Presence. I was given a glimpse of how perfect our World is and how our presence in this World brings color, texture, and meaning that adds so much value to the landscape of life. Each of us is so uniquely special, and I truly felt that as I walked the boardwalk in communion with my Divine Presence.
Suzanne provides the optimal environment to connect with the Divine Presence within. Not only is the retreat space lovely, inviting, and calm, but the meditations, movement activities, and quiet time she selects for the weekend are all centered around giving each participant the opportunity to be truly grounded and deeply connected to each Self.
If you’ve not yet allowed yourself to experience this one-of-a-kind opportunity to spend with yourself, I would strongly urge you to do so. You will not regret it. “ - Mary L.
"Beach...Ocean...Spiritual Retreat. When I saw these words in an invitation from Suzanne, I knew I wanted to be there. She masterfully crafted a weekend filled with beautiful sights, sounds and touching discoveries about oneself.
You enter in silence on Friday night to an awe inspiring oceanfront apartment with beautiful music playing which centers, grounds and drains away any lingering stress. After that, you discover that you are surrounded by glorious new Divine Beings who are all there for the same purpose...to safely and comfortably dive in to discover more of who we truly are...to discover our authentic and magnificent selves.
This retreat was a vacation for my soul. The discoveries, memories and new friendships that it brought has made this a "must be" annual event.
I am blessed, as is this world, to have Suzanne in our lives. She is a beautiful and authentic pioneer.
Thank you Suzanne!" - Sue A.
"I was privileged and honored to spend this past weekend with transformational life coach, Suzanne Eder, and other extraordinary women at Solid Ground’s Spiritual Beach Retreat.
I had no expectation of what the weekend may hold for me. I only knew that I would be getting in touch with the Divine Presence within, gaining an understanding of who I TRULY am in this physical incarnation, and receiving Divine Openings each day.
Prior to my exposure to Divine Openings, I had a belief system in place whereby I knew that I was a soul who had chosen to live on the physical plane and had life lessons to learn so that I could “move up the spiritual ladder” to the next phase on my journey to enlightenment. I believed that there were certain life lessons that I had chosen to master during this incarnation, and situations would continue to present themselves until I could ultimately resolve and master them. Always, new lessons were there for me to learn.
In addition to moving up the spiritual ladder was the overarching question of, “What is my purpose in life?” Surely, I had some magnificent purpose for being here, but if I were continually overcoming obstacles and learning lessons, what could it possibly be?
Imagine my wonder and surprise when Suzanne told us on Friday evening, at the beginning of the retreat, that our purpose was to live a joy-filled and creative existence as the magnificent Beings that we are!!!! Imagine my increased wonder and surprise when she told us that we need never have to work on ourselves again! There is nothing to fix; we are completely whole and perfect as we are; after all, we are of the Divine!
Thus began a journey of getting in touch with the Divine within; recognizing and embracing the magnificence that we are; breaking through barriers that have kept us “small” and thinking that were are undeserving of a truly wonderful life.
My life has been forever changed by this weekend, and bonding at the deepest level occurred. We celebrated our magnificence and recognized it in each other! " - Mary L.
