Winter is too often considered a challenge with its shorter, darker days and its cold and snow keeping us confined indoors. But the season has its own special gifts. In the the hectic hustle of our now "24/7" culture, winter gives us permission to step off the roller coaster of life and turn our awareness inward.
This introduction to a number of methods will have you creating knotwork and understanding how to draw beautiful interlaced knotwork forms. With this basic knowledge, move into a quiet, contemplative state as you draw.
Step out of the season's frigid embrace and experience two hours of body-nurturing, soul-satisfying restorative Yoga. Breath work and guided meditation will bathe you in a pool of profound relaxation from which you will emerge balanced and renewed ~ perfectly restored. Rekindle your inner glow and shine brightly.
After a long winter's nap, the frozen Earth unfurls, uncurls and opens itself to bask in the strengthening rays of the sun. Open to your own spring awakening with this Yoga series. We'll detoxify and release stale winter energy...
Women and men, in any 12-Step program, are welcome to join us as we journey in this recovery retreat through prayer, music, presentations, and sharing. We will reflect on recovery themes and their practical application in our lives.
We at Genesis are in sincere appreciation of our generous sponsors and donors!
