Sitting in the Midst of It All
Join us for a two-day poetry mini-retreat as we pause to sit in the midst of our lives, connect with others here, and find a way into “OK-ness” with all that life offers us currently.
Today the miracle is to sit
in the sunlit room and be
in the sunlit room,
to be here and only here,
here in the bountiful silence,
here in the shifting shadows,
here in the hands of midwinter…
Excerpt from Apricity, by Rosemerry Wahtola Trommer
December can be blur, a time of rushing headlong toward the holidays and into the new year. Here amid the fullness of this season, it is also a wonderful time to sit with our lives. We invite you to join us for this mini-retreat to push the pause button, slow down, and explore what is here.
What is alive, difficult, interesting, joyful, puzzling, confusing, exciting…? Real?
In this two-day retreat, we will nurture a trustworthy space to welcome an exploration of whatever is most potent and poignant for you – whatever may be arising, emerging and significant. Through the Courage & Renewal approach and through poetry writing and exploration, this offering invites you to connect with yourself and others – to slow down, reflect and notice, while experiencing poetry through the gateways of listening, reading, creative writing, imagination, and shared exploration. With the discoveries we make, we can then consider what wants to be celebrated, released, healed and/or probed further.
