Moving Mindfully into the New Year: An Online and/or In-Person Retreat

Friday, December 30, 2016 | 7:00pm

Online Portion:  Friday, December 30 - Sunday, January 1
In-Person Retreat:  Saturday, December 31, 9 am - 1 pm, Center for Prayer and Pilgrimage

No matter where you are or what your schedule, join us for an online retreat to help move us mindfully into the new year.

Just as the evocative language of poetry opens us to a fresh way of seeing, so do threshold times and places invite us to look at our lives from different perspectives. Join us on this on-line, at home retreat as we explore poems that shed light in the darkness, expand our field of vision, and carry us across the threshold into a new year.

Retreat materials sent to you ahead of time include readings, meditation suggestions, and questions for you to explore according to your own rhythm. Periodic emails will prompt times to pause for reflection.

For those in the DC area, there is an in-person retreat option the morning of Saturday, December 31 for a time of guided reflection and ritual to let go of the year that is passing and welcome the year to come. The content of this is separate from the online retreat materials.
