During this gently paced retreat, we will use simple yoga, stretching, breathing, and meditation to open ourselves to the Spirit before each session. As we each form an intention to create a simple bowl to give to someone who has been a gift in our life, we will dig our own clay from the Pendle Hill grounds and prepare it for working. We will share stories about the people for whom we are making our gifts as we shape, glaze, and fire the bowls. Finally, we will celebrate our process and our creations.
