Save the date for our Spring Festival on April 28.
We are celebrating Mother Earth and her bounty differently this year. The Spring Festival will focus on workshops and farm tours related to permaculture and organic farming. Our other concentration is on the retreat center with yoga and meditation classes all day. More details coming soon. Stay tuned!
Listen With Your Heart: A Musical Mindfulness Workshop
February 24 10:00am- 2:30pm $75 / class
All levels of experience welcome. No musical instrument skills required.
In this workshop we will playfully explore the musical nature of the world we live in and our own ‘inner music.’ Together we will discover different levels of listening and explore how to ‘feel’ sound – and silence. Through hands-on exercises with simple instruments, alone and together, you will learn to practice a musical mindfulness that will deepen your capacity for listening as well as strengthen your communication and interaction skills.
Instructors Karoline Hausted and Mark Davis bring together studies in Contemplative Musicianship and Kundalini yoga with years of experience as songwriters and musicians, most recently in the acclaimed bands To Wake You and Shadowlands.
Tuesday January 30: Potluck at 6 pm. Ceremony begins at 6:45 pm.
Native Americans traditionally called this moon the Snow Moon as in some parts of the country we are in middle of a snowy winter.
The next full moon will be a Blue Moon, the second full moon of January. Like January’s first full moon, the second full moon will be a “supermoon” as the moon arrives at perigee close to reaching its fullest phase. There will also be a total lunar eclipse during the Blue Moon, which some are billing as a rare Super Blue-Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse. Such a Blue Moon total lunar eclipse has not occurred for 152 years.
If you’d like to share a song, poem, or reflection, let us know so we can put you on the agenda. It’s a good time to come together to bond with community.
