Hidden Monastery Online Retreat for Body and Soul


Care for Body and Soul

with Cynthia Winton-Henry and the Dance Chapel Leaders
real people in real-time


The Hidden Monastery Doors Are Open

Come deepen in prayer, connection, friendship, creativity, and care. 

Establish a contemplative rhythm to the day as we live through one of the great initiations of humanity. Old ways of acting and thinking are falling away. Something simpler is arising, profoundly beautiful and troubling. Our bodies need simple, grounding ritual structure, creative invitation, and sacred friendship. Come honor land, first peoples, spiritual guides, ancestors, and our birthrights of dance voice, story, and stillness. 

If you are just attending dance chapels no registration is required. Email Cynthia if you need the link.

To register and receive materials for the additional sessions email cynthia@interplay.org

If you would like a spiritual direction session with any chapel leaders or with Cynthia during this time let Cynthia know. There is a fee for that service.
