April 20 to April 23
Monday 3pm check-in, 5:30 dinner through Thurs, noon departure
Come move, pray, play, and delight in Earth time. Bring your bodyspirit’s truth. Find respite, among other sensitive, creative souls. Listen, rest, sing, exhale. Using the practice of InterPlay, we get to notice, unlock, and free the wisdom of body and soul.
As retreat leader, I will share my research on Greening the Soul: Creative Practices for Ensoulment. We will honor land, matter, energy, and spirit’s timing, knowing that there is no more enduring source of resilience and health than our soul.
Afternoons provide spacious personal time with room for making art in community. The optional late afternoon session is dedicated to healing prayer and dances on behalf of one another and our world.
Evenings are time to create ritual and share what the Body of Earth and the Soul of Love want. Improvising together in this sacred setting, we tune-in to stories, nudges, weirdnesses, and the challenges of arising wisdom.
