Event Description

Many relationships have suffered the effects of discord, disorientation or dissolution over deeply divisive issues arising from socio-political upheaval and the agonizing trek through a global pandemic. Family members, lifetime friendships, even significant other relationships have been challenged, strained and broken open when differences come to light. This in-person weekend retreat at Prairiewoods (120 East Boyson Road in Hiawatha) helps us go deeper into the spiritual grounding that offers healing and wholeness. Through meditative energy medicine movement and embodied prayer, journaling, yogic sleep, a fun process for exploring dreams as spiritual guidance and encounter, meditations for increased compassion and greater skillfulness with difficult emotions, and singing bowl healing through sound and vibration we will explore paths to spiritual renewal and offer gentle openings for healing and creative beginnings. Goodbye to hopelessness and spiritual lethargy. Hello to holistic healing and possibilities for spiritual renewal!
