Saturday Soul-Stretch for Lovers of Embodied Spirituality at Prairiewoods
- 8 a.m. - 1 p.m.
- All Ages
Wake up! Wake up! The weekend is here. Saturday Soul Stretch will get us out of bed and back into our full-spectrum humanity. Join facilitator Laura Weber at Prairiewoods (120 East Boyson Road in Hiawatha) to de-stress, reconnect and sink deeply into the present moment. A hot breakfast starts the day, followed by gentle tai chi movement and a sitting meditation to foster deep relaxation. To relax and engage, sip a cup of aromatic tea and enter into a whole new realm of exploration with a different spiritual modality each month, such as dream work, journaling, mandalas, labyrinth, breath-exercise, sounding, centering prayer, poetry for the soul, singing bowl meditation or drumming. To cap off the morning’s spiritual workout, enjoy a mindfulness walk out in the beauty of Prairiewoods’ 70 acres of prairie grasses, trees, streams and gardens, with only the owls, squirrels, turkeys and deer as your companion-guides. Finally, return to the Spirituality Center for a scrumptious luncheon, and leave happy and refreshed. The cost is $50 and includes breakfast and lunch. (You may choose to pay an additional $25 to stay through the afternoon with dinner, or $55 to stay overnight with Sunday breakfast.)
