After months of wondering whether my retreat would be on or off due to COVID-19, I am happy to report that it is ON, and Pyramid Life Center is ready to receive guests and offer us a safe and socially distanced atmosphere. We’ve got
nine 20 people signed up for this retreat so far, which means there are very few slots left in order for us to keep this gathering small and in line with health protocols. Of course, small groups make for more intimate and powerful retreats anyway, so… win-win.
Stillpoint: Creating Calm amid the Chaos will be offered Friday, Sept. 11, through Sunday, Sept. 13. It will be a weekend to nourish body, mind, and soul as we enter into the beautiful fall season at Pyramid Life Center. Check-in is at 5 p.m. on Friday; the retreat concludes at 2 p.m. on Sunday.
This retreat will focus around the theme of “meditation in motion” and will include practices to help us discover the divine in the everyday, the miracles in the mundane moments of life. Optional yoga classes will be offered for those who are interested, as well as collage-as-prayer, journaling and more. Participants can also personalize this retreat by creating prayer practices around their own interests — photography, hiking, kayaking — in the abundant free time that will be scheduled into our weekend. This will be a semi-silent retreat: silent breakfasts and silent evenings after our closing sessions. (For those who want deeper silence, there is the option to take all meals in silence.)
The cost is $150, which includes the retreat program, rustic accommodations and all meals, as well as access to kayaks, hiking trails, and plenty of Adirondack chairs for resting and daydreaming. It’s a truly beautiful physical location with a gorgeous lake, mountains, loons, herons and more. To register, click HERE and look for Stillpoint in the dropdown menu.
Pyramid Life Center is operating according to COVID-19 health requirements, with social distancing enforced through facilities. You will be screened as you enter. Don’t forget your mask and your hand sanitizer!
