2 Day long retreats 8am -4pm, Saturday & Sunday December 1 – 2, 2018
Teachers: Ven. Stephanie Kaza, Erika Rench, and Kaye Jones
1st Day Women’s Dharma
Join us for a contemplative day of dharma, in the company of other women. Our day will include time in nature, in meditation, a short teaching, and quiet reflection. Some days life can feel like one long prayer, “may I find patience, may I find courage, open my heart, help me” Prayer can be a letting go or a filling up. As women, how we “sit” in the middle of it all is our spiritual path, and in our time together we discover that our spiritual lives occur not in spite of the everyday, but because of it. December 1st Soto Zen teacher Stephanie Kaza will join us to explore the divine feminine in Kuan Yin, the Goddess of Compassion,
2nd Day – The Work That Reconnects
We gather again as women have for centuries in the houses of their ancestors,
at the brink of darkness, to kindle our
internal fires and reclaim our birthright as women. Join us for a day of the Work that Reconnects; the spiral of gratitude, honoring our pain, seeing with new eyes and going forth.
This work, created by our teacher Joanna Macy,
reveals how grief, anger and fear are all healthy responses to our fierce love for the world.
No previous experience is necessary. Come as you are. Sliding scale $35-65. Bring your own lunch. Facilitated by Erika Rench and Kaye Jones.
