Special Guest: Rev. Sharon H. Edwards and Carolyn Foster, M.A.
When: August 11-14, 2021
Where: via Zoom
Human beings encounter change and transition in three predictable stages, from an ending of the old reality, through a time of liminality where nothing feels settled, finally emerging to a new beginning. In all these stages, but especially in the in-between times, spiritual and creative practices that engage the body can help with disorientation, strengthening resilience and emotional balance. In this retreat, Rev. Sharon Holt Edwards will guide us through an exploration of neurobiology, body wisdom, and healing work, while Carolyn Foster will offer us creative practices that ease transitions, even welcome ones such as the waning of the pandemic.
During the retreat we will listen and gather in large and small groups to:
- Learn how our neurophysiology influences all aspects of our health, decision-making, beliefs and perspectives, and experiences of God
- Engage in ancient and new spiritual practices that increase bodily well-being, including moving meditation, gentle yoga, chanting, and prayer.
- Clarify our paths forward out of this liminal time with creative writing exercises
Our rhythm will be evening gatherings Wednesday, August 11, Thursday, August 12, and Friday, August 13, with recorded portions available during the day for personal viewing, and a closing session the morning of Saturday, August 14.
