The Grand Embrace: Online meditation and poetry retreat
September 13 @ 10:00 am - 4:30 pm MDT$40 – $100
A blossoming of the heart with Susie Harrington and Rosemerry Wahtola Trommer
A online meditation retreat with personal exploration through writing.
We live in a time of great upheaval. What if we see more clearly? What is really here in this world when we look underneath our longing for orderliness and certainty? What would happen if we could really rest in uncertainty? How deep might that relaxation go? How much more open might our lives be if we made friends with letting go? How might we respond and care for the world and its beings in new ways?
Join retreat leaders Rosemerry Wahtola Trommer and dharma teacher Susie Harrington. We’ll read poems that don’t bring answers, poems that lead us deeper into paradox. We’ll sit in the midst of the not-knowing, sit with our joys, our challenges, the what is here of each moment. We’ll write our own explorations of what if and what else and see what even a small bit of wonder might do … if you’re willing to risk a little, meditation and writing can open doors where before you didn’t even realize a door existed. Spiritual doors. Healing doors. Doors where there used to be walls.
No previous writing experience required. No previous meditation experience required. This poetry and meditation weekend is for anyone who is curious about weaving spiritual awakening and the creative poetic impulse. For those who have attended before, this will be a new exploration.
