Stillpoint retreat Sept. 10-12 open for registration
Registration is now open for the third-annual Stillpoint retreat at Pyramid Life Center to be held Friday, Sept. 10, through Sunday, Sept. 12, 2021. Spots are filling up fast, so don’t wait to hold your space for this retreat that will allow you find calm amid life’s chaos, spend time in silence, build community, eat great food with great people, laugh (a lot), kayak, practice yoga, hike, pray, and just be.
The retreat is $175, all-inclusive. What does that mean? You’ll get rustic accommodations at the always-beautiful Pyramid Life Center with its mountains and lake, island and waterfall. It’s a beautiful gem in the lower Adirondack Mountains, the kind of place you never want to leave and you always want to come back to. In addition, that price includes homemade meals, kayaking or canoeing, swimming (if it’s warm), and all retreat activities — from daily talks and reflections and optional daily yoga sessions to journaling and collage-as-prayer. Plenty of free time is built into the schedule for doing your own thing, in solitude or with a retreat friend.
Here are a few comments from some folks who joined me for the Stillpoint retreat at Pyramid in 2020:
“Honest, this was one of the best weekends all fall for me.”
“…wonderful, uplifting and healing weekend nurtured by Mary and the amazing PLC staff. I have known PLC for over 30 years but now will ‘see’ it in a newly expanded way. Thank you all for your sharing, thoughts, laughter, and your presence at this Thin Space as we travel on our Pilgrim Journey together. I felt the presence of Soul Friends among you.”
“One week ago today I was checking into heaven! Not literally, of course, but if I had to describe heaven, it would be:
Beautiful souls, like minded souls
Laughter ( when we weren’t silent, of course )
Learning more of what we’ve come to love, prayer, meditation
Doing something new ( for me, yoga )
Meeting new friends
Beautiful weather, warm sun, starlight at night
And a promise to return”
