Spring Alumni Spiritual Retreat 2021
The challenging and rewarding spiritual journey of recovery inherently includes a softening of the small self and an expansion of the larger Self. Our rigid views of ourselves and others, our lack of adaptability to new situations, our “shoulds” and “shouldn’ts,” and our limited capacity to understand our deeper motivations and those of others cause anxiety and stress for us and those around us. In the journey toward a greater and more fulfilling experience of life, we step away from our busy lives to take a metaphorical and literal breath, to let our worries drop away, and to absorb into a much wider sense of Self that has faith and trust in the natural unfolding of things. As we soften and expand, we realize the interconnection of all creations and we cannot but fall in love with all of them. Our views become flexible, our “shoulds” dissolve into an attitude of welcoming, and compassion occurs without even trying.
Join other Harmony alumni in an 7-hour spiritual retreat consisting of seated and walking meditation, gentle Yoga, time spent in the outdoors, journaling, and group sharing and processing. All faiths and non-faiths are welcomed and honored. No prior spiritual experience necessary. Lunch will be provided.
