Denise Crawn and Nancy Scheirer
Are you searching for some new ways to escape the busyness in your life? You might consider giving yourself a relaxing weekend on the mountain at Kirkridge … a gift of time! Come and be present to autumn’s colorful changes. During this “Celtic New Year” weekend, we will offer a mindful medley of mini-workshops or you can choose to spend your time exactly as you like. All activities are offered to you by invitation, not expectation; this is your “gift of time” for renewal and reflection. Workshop options will include: an informational session outside celebrating the Celtic observance of Samhaiin (The Celtic New Year), a craft session, a guided walk in nature, poetry, song, and morning mindful movement. Also included this weekend will be the option of attending Columcille Megalith Park’s spectacular torchlit Samhaiin Celebration amongst the standing stones, drumming, and a morning sharing circle at the St. Columba Chapel. Bring a journal or a book or a camera or just your mind’s eye. Come and enjoy a Gift of Time!
*Entrance to Columcille’s Samhaiin Celebration is a $5.00 per person suggested donation to be given at the gate.
