Celebrate the coming of the New Year at Pendle Hill. Renew body and spirit in a mindfulness retreat led by Valerie Brown, be inspired by a musical adventure with Maestro Karl Middleman, or combine creativity with reflection in the art studio with Melanie Weidner. However you participate in our New Years programming, you will be treated to a delicious home-cooked New Year’s Eve dinner, a chamber concert with special guest performers to be announced, and our traditional midnight meeting for worship.

Embrace winter’s gifts of introspection, and give in to the sacred, creative rhythms of your inner life. Nourishing poetry, imagery, and meditation will invite you to celebrate the passing year and explore your longings, leadings, and intentions for the year to come. Express that inspiration and wisdom through fun, beautiful paper arts collage, and simple creative writing.
