Sep 14 – Sep 16, 2014 Sun 9:00 AM – Tue 4:00 PM $420.00
Amidst life which has come a long way slowly ~ leaf and water, forest and stone, we open to the ways life tugs, calling us to deeper attentiveness, resonance and awe, a widening embrace.

We sing to blow upon the embers of a vast and emerging creation within and around us, stirring the powers of imagination and courage, essential to recreating ourselves as a new and wiser humanity in the interdependence of planet and cosmic community. As we gather in the promise of circle, opening ourselves into singing, simple ritual, reflection, sound and silence ~ we move into a more intimate knowing of the love that moves within all ~ love daring us to deepen.

This is an invitation for women to come together and create a holy space. We gather for inspiration, sustenance, and celebration. In gratitude we sing, deepening our experience of living as planetary and cosmic beings in the long story of the universe in creation. Within a circle of women we allow song, reflection, and simple ritual to open us to the stirrings within that call us to deeper attentiveness, resonance and awe, a widening embrace.
